Datscha, Sweden’s leading supplier of information services and Internet-based analysis tools for commercial properties is establishing operations in Finland.

The objective is to offer information on all of Finland’s 140,000 commercial properties. Datscha will also provide detailed market information for the 50 largest municipalities. The launch of the service will occur in conjunction with the Finnish property fair in Aulanko. Datscha currently has more than 1,500 users in seven countries, of which the majority operates in the finance or property market.

“Finland is a very attractive market, in many respects quite similar to Sweden in terms of business and culture. However, the general consensus in the property sector is that Sweden is a more transparent market than Finland. We intend to remedy that by packaging and communicating all accessible information according to our concept. It will create added value for our customers, while benefiting the Finnish property market as a whole,” says Datscha’s Finnish Country Manager, Sami Vaateri.

Datscha develops and sells Internet-based services for information about, and analysis of, the commercial property market. The number of users has grown continuously since the company’s inception more than ten years ago and currently consists of approximately 1,500 users in seven countries, of which the majority operates within the finance or property market.

“Datscha is a key facilitator in the Swedish property sector. After one year of intense development work, we are now ready for our first foreign venture and will launch our service in Finland. Accordingly, we will be offering information and analysis material pertaining to a total of 500,000 commercial properties,” says Carl Ekerling, President of Datscha.
