The Value of Aggregated Expense Data 

Make Informed Comparison Decisions

Users can leverage this data to assess their overall market performance. This helps them identify opportunities, compare them, and make data-driven decisions when evaluating potential investments. 

Update Preset Assumption Sets

Users can refine their preset assumption sets based on real-world market averages. This ensures that their financial projections and underwriting processes are grounded in reliable data, reducing friction, and improving accuracy. 

Benchmark Against Market Performance

By comparing their portfolio of properties against the aggregate expense data, users can identify areas for improvement and optimize their property’s performance. This presents opportunities to increase revenue by decreasing expenses, ultimately enhancing the property’s value. 

Real World Use Cases 

To provide a clear understanding of the practical applications of aggregate expense data, let’s consider potential use cases: 

Example 1: An Investor 

  • A seasoned investor at a small boutique investment firm out of San Antonio, looking for potential multifamily investments can leverage aggregate expense data to evaluate the financial viability of properties. By analyzing the market and comparing performance metrics, they can make data-driven investment decisions and estimate potential returns. 

Example 2: A Broker
