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)

SkySlope
SkySlope is most suited for real estate firm document management. I cannot think of another industry that it would be suited for; it is pretty specific. If you have less than 20-30 transactions a year, it wouldn't probably be worth the money versus just scanning. Our company does ~150 per year, and it saves me so much time. It is great for managing brokers of any sized firm with a fair number of transactions.

Cons
CoStar Group
  • 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.

  • In my opinion, customer support
  • In my experience, understanding that an effective date is a start date
  • In my opinion, prioritizing customers over greed
  • In my experience, not arguing and fighting with customers
  • In my opinion, finding resolutions and common grounds instead of fighting customers when they are facing difficulties

I would give it an 11 if I could. It's very responsive, very informative, very prompt. This is probably the biggest strength of the company.

Alternatives Considered
CoStar Group
There is literally not one good thing that I can say about CoStar. They charge my card $450/month because I signed a one-year contract. They provide very little data and properties and most of the time it is inaccurate. Their customer service is atrocious. They overpromise, underdeliver. STAY away from using Costar!

I find SkySlope easier to use than Dotloop. For instance, it allows us to add a recipient to a signature request, saving time having to forward off a signed document.

Return on Investment
CoStar Group
  • 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.

SkySlope
  • In our experience, we can't use the system at all as it is overcomplicated
  • In our experience, our accounts were never setup correctly from day 1
  • In my opinion, waste of energy, time, and money.
