CRED iQ Launches Commercial Real Estate Comps Software
CRED iQ, a data, analytics and valuation platform serving the commercial real estate finance and investment communities today announced the launch of its property comps tool. The tool compares a subject's appraised value, rent, expenses, occupancy, cap rate, interest rate, as well as several other property and loan characteristics against its competitive set and the overall market.

Developed using a proprietary algorithm, the software selects similar properties from CRED iQ's data set based on several property and loan factors and assigns a score based on the relevance of each comp.  The software automatically generates comps for properties in the CRED iQ database. Users can also enter property details to generate comps for almost any commercial property in the US.


 Our platform was built using the latest data lake technologies so that commercial real estate professionals could instantly access relevant, timely, and verified property and loan data.  The comps technology allows users to quickly gauge market fundamentals or underwrite a specific loan using detailed financials from intelligent market comps with a few clicks.

- Co-Founder Michael Haas

We developed this tool to provide a convenient way for users to compare performance, valuation and loan characteristics for any commercial property with its competitive set. Users have access to comps for all properties within our database, or search and generate comps for almost any commercial property in the country.

@properties Acquires Real Estate Technology and Advisory Firm Suburban Jungle Group

@properties | July 08, 2021

@properties, one of the nation's largest residential brokerage firms, announced today the acquisition of Suburban Jungle Group (Suburban Jungle), a real estate technology and advisory firm that helps home buyers identify the best suburbs or neighborhoods for their specific needs before matching them with a vetted real estate agent. Suburban Jungle, based in New York, presently serves nine major U.S. metropolitan regions. Suburban Jungle founder and president Alison Bernstein will continue to manage the company, according to @properties co-CEOs Thad Wong and Mike Golden. In addition, the firm will continue to operate independently, with its strategists recommending clients to real estate agents based on the agents' local knowledge and proven commitment to Suburban Jungle's buyer-advocacy model. Suburban Jungle was established by Bernstein in 2004 when he was a student at Columbia Business School. The company was her answer to determining which of the 500 towns and suburbs in New York City would be the best match for her family. Highly experienced Suburban Jungle strategists suggest locations for their customers based on in-depth client interviews, technology, and extensive local experience. The strategist works with both parties after recommending the buyer to a real estate agent until the buyer finds a house. The Jungler app from the company adds another degree of efficiency by enabling the buyer, agent, and strategist to exchange resources, schedule appointments, interact with locals, and provide feedback. Suburban Jungle is currently available in the following cities: New York, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Boston, Washington, D.C., South Florida, and Austin. The company also provides an Urban Jungle service that focuses on New York's five boroughs and services for move-down buyers. Suburban Jungle will gain resources from the sale to @properties, allowing it to develop its tech platform further while extending into new markets and growing in current ones. @properties is also expanding. With the acquisitions of Ansley Real Estate in Atlanta and Nest Realty in Charlottesville in 2019, the Chicago-based company has expanded outside the Midwest. In addition, @properties will launch a national franchise brand in late 2020, with franchises already in Detroit and La Crosse, Wisconsin. About @properties @properties, founded in 2000, is ranked eighth on the REALTrends 500 list of the largest residential brokerage companies in the United States by sales volume. @properties and its affiliated companies employ over 4,000 real estate agents throughout nine states in 65 office locations. Pl@tform, an integrated application suite created by @properties, assists its agents in managing all elements of the client relationship and real estate transaction.

REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT

Ashcroft Capital Announces Acquisition of Elliot Norcross

Ashcroft Capital | December 06, 2021

Ashcroft Capital, a fully integrated multifamily investment firm, and National Property REIT Corp. ("NPRC"), a full service REIT that invests in and operates real estate assets, today announced their acquisition of Elliot Norcross (formerly Vida Apartments by ARIUM), a garden-style community located in one of the fastest-growing submarkets in the Atlanta metropolitan area. Elliot Norcross features 687 apartment units and offers quick access to Interstate 85, one of the primary thoroughfares in the city. Birchstone Residential, Ashcroft Capital's in-house property management company, has assumed day-to-day management of the community. NPRC, the majority equity investor in this transaction, focuses on acquiring tenant diversified real estate assets and, as of Sept. 30, 2021, owned 51 multifamily properties with over 20,000 units across the U.S. The off-market acquisition represents Ashcroft Capital's first transaction with NPRC, and the companies are actively seeking further acquisition opportunities to pursue together. Elliot Norcross also marks Ashcroft Capital's first acquisition in Norcross and the fourth in the company's rapidly growing Atlanta-metro portfolio. "We're excited to team up on this acquisition with NPRC, which, over the past decade, has acquired 73 communities similar to Elliot Norcross, Together with NPRC, we look forward to taking over this property because we feel it offers significant upside potential based on remaining capex and strong submarket rent growth. Only 30% of the units have been renovated, which provides the opportunity to add value by upgrading the classic units. Additionally, Norcross is becoming more and more desirable due to its proximity to Atlanta's employment centers and its highly-rated school districts." - Frank Roessler, founder and CEO of Ashcroft. Norcross has become a sought-after submarket due to its location directly amidst Atlanta's I-85 industrial corridor, which is one of the largest industrial districts in the Southeast and represents one of the metro's primary employment centers. Prominent employers in the Gwinnett County submarket include Comcast, Amazon, Mitsubishi, Hewlett-Packard, and Asbury Automotive. "Elliot Norcross marks our first joint venture with a major institutional partner and represents a significant expansion of our institutional platform, We're eager to partner with NPRC on an asset that we believe has significant operational upside and value-add potential in a vibrant, on-the-rise submarket. Furthermore, our emerging presence in the Atlanta market gives us the manpower and the infrastructure to deliver high levels of resident satisfaction and strong asset performance across the metro area." - Bill Kay, managing director of capital markets for Ashcroft Capital. Renovation efforts at Elliot Norcross, which will be executed by Birchstone's construction team, are expected to include further updating and modernizing the amenity spaces, improving curb appeal, updating landscaping, and implementing signage upgrades. In-home anticipated improvements include the addition of stainless-steel appliances, luxury laminate countertops, tile backsplashes, vinyl plank flooring, new cabinet fronts with modern pulls, and upgraded lighting and plumbing fixtures. New management also plans to add washer-dryer sets to approximately 600 homes. Situated across 52 acres, Elliot Norcross was built in two phases beginning in 1972, and offers spacious one-, two- and three-bedroom homes with an average unit size of 1,021 square feet. Eighty-five percent of the homes are of the two- and three-bedroom variety, including 128 townhomes. Existing community amenities include two resident clubhouses, two resort-style swimming pools, picnic and grilling stations, fitness center, two soccer fields, play area, and business center. About Ashcroft Capital Founded in 2015, Ashcroft Capital is a vertically integrated multifamily investment firm that has acquired 43 communities comprising 13,000 units since its inception and now has $1.7 billion in assets under management throughout several high-growth metros of the Sun Belt.

Ashcroft is capitalized with high net worth, family office and institutional capital.
