Likelihood to Recommend

CoStar Real Estate Manager

Gen-Y and younger will have no problem learning how to use CoStar but its not very intuitive for the older generations (they have to hunt and peck for what they are looking for and have no idea how to manipulate the reporting features)

Dotloop

I would definitely recommend Dotloop because of how easy it's been to use for all parties involved and how much it has simplified processes and procedures. It is very user friendly, cuts down on unnecessary steps and is very customizable. The ability to configure the software to how you need to use it is a plus!

Pros

CoStar Real Estate Manager

  • For my role within the company, I find CoStars database of historical information very helpful. Previous users, owners, financing lien holders, tax information and county data are things I look for on a daily basis.

Dotloop

  • No sign up or registration process for buyers and sellers.
  • Unique links for each user makes it easy and fool proof to use.
  • It is so easy to use there are no instructions needed, even for first time users.

Cons

CoStar Real Estate Manager

  • In our market (Portland, OR), not enough users implement the tools that could make CoStar so much better. For example, I specialize in medical but brokers and owners don't take the time to mark medical as an approved use in their buildings so I have to search much longer and cross-reference the data by contacting the brokers directly.
  • I find it really annoying that when I download documents CoStar doesn't use smart technology to automatically name my files. It is especially irritating since every piece of marketing we post to CoStar has a relevant file name yet when we download the same file we have to rename it.

Dotloop

  • The viewing could be a bit more user friendly when opening from different types of devices.
  • It would be nice if there was an alert that clients don't need to try to login when opening a document since they don't have an account.

Dotloop was very easy to learn and is easy for all parties, even those who are not computer/technology literate. This is an important feature because there are many people involved in completing documents and they change on a consistent basis, where sometimes the person may not be good with technology. In my experience, all users have been able to complete what they need.

Whenever I have any issues with a loop or a document or signatures disappearing, I'm able to reach out to Dotloop and they answer promptly and appropriately. They've always been able to help me with whatever issues I have, in a timely fashion.

Alternatives Considered

CoStar Real Estate Manager

One of our landlords requested we try VTS but we didn't continue because it was such a small portfolio it too more time to update the database than we wanted to spend

Dotloop

For real estate transactions, Dotloop wins hands down. HelloSign is good for general document signing purposes, but nothing beats Dotloop and it's ease of use when it comes to real estate transactions with multiple parties involved. We started out with HelloSign but quickly moved to Dotloop after using it a few times as a customer.

Return on Investment

CoStar Real Estate Manager

  • Since CoStar has linked with LoopNet we have had fewer bad data calls. By which I mean old data from LoopNet that was available to the general public is now more regularly updated through CoStar so we have less confusion with our clients.
Amanda Kraft | TrustRadius Reviewer

Dotloop

  • Dotloop has made signing documents for out of town people a breeze.
  • We have had several customers and/or clients say that Dotloop makes things so much easier and more convenient.
