  • Met with my CoStar rep last week to get a demo on their Ipad app. It is super slick and they are certainly on top of their game. But when I pulled up tenant data on my own properties i was surprised at the inaccuracies.

    Bottom line – the data changes by the minute, so it will always be wrong. All we really need is a list of the right contacts, reasonably accurate information and a user-frinedly interface so we can create good presentations. When I did research years ago at C&W, “quality control” meant a broker nicknamed Rambo breathing down my neck. Does Rambo work at CoStar?

    For my needs Florida CIE by ePropertyData is working at a fraction of the cost of CoStar. But the ability of the top national firms to share their research costs by outsourcing still makes a lot of sense. Until one or more of the big guys pulls out of CoStar I think they’re here to stay. Unless CoStar really pisses one of the major players, I don’t see the landscape changing.

    But keep ranting Duke ! If CoStar is as smart as I think they are, they will listen. For the record, feel free to add my article to your comprehensive list.
