The database will include units across a range fo sectors, including public, commercial, residential and agricultural units and their geolocation data, the statement added.

“The new company’s use of advanced digital solutions in its operations, enabling it to link its platform to all relevant government entities, will enhance reliability and transparency in real estate services and data in Saudi Arabia,” Raid Ismail, co-Head of Middle East and North Africa direct investments at PIF, was quoted as saying.

“This in turn will increase the attractiveness of the investment ecosystem, and grow the value of national real estate assets.”
