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)

Great for property managers with about 25 or more properties. Not worth the money for less than 10. This works for all sorts of different properties so it's about choosing the right kind of account for the situation.

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.

Property Vista

  • Everything is easy to understand.
  • Customer service doesn't give me the runaround, they are actually helpful.
  • Has all the need to know information all in one place.

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.

  • Needs area for fine details such as nearby parks, schools, libraries, etc.

When I needed customer service I got the help I needed without being transferred a million times. The guy knew what he was talking about and everything was taken care of immediately

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

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.

  • Worth the money, with everything organized I can get more of the properties into the system.
