No-cost upgrades are most welcome during these difficult economic times.
DALLAS, TX (PRWEB) December 20, 2012
MarketSurveyTools.com users have recently noticed upgrades appearing inside their apartment market survey software. No-cost upgrades are most welcome during these difficult economic times, especially when focused on sharpening a competitive edge.
MarketSurveyTools.com is a sophisticated, business intelligence program that creates a competitive market profile and comparable analysis. It references pertinent pricing data available online and generates some magnificent reports in presentation format. Being web based, it eliminates many of the difficulties associated with desktop spreadsheets: incompatibilities, corrupted formulas, advanced learning curve, and mediocre presentation options, to mention a few.
MARKET REPORTS BY GEOGRAPHIC AREA
One of the new upgrades permits corporate users to access county, state and national demographic data by zip code. It is thereby easy to track population changes, economic trends and housing growth. Users can also view building permit trends for metro areas. This is especially helpful for acquisition studies, performance reports, and budget projections.
Managers can review aggregated market data by available cities and states and compare their private market data to a three month overview of the area average net effective rent per square foot, reported occupancy, national averages and overall occupancy average. Users may also request MarketSurveyTools.com’s independent survey data by geographic location.
NET EFFECTIVE RENT ANALYSIS
One of the reporting tools now available in MarketSurveyTools.com is the “NER Projection Tool” where a user can add a unit upgrade/improvement to see if the expense results in a positive return on investment. For example, if a user wants to see how soon it will take to recover the cost of a new refrigerator upgrade, all they have to do is enter the expense and the anticipated rate increase, then watch the program calculate. Likewise, they can also enter a rent concession amount and view the extent of income adversity created thereby.
