What should I do if I’m an IREM member who has already submitted my 2023 data?

You are all set. You do not need to submit your data again. 

When will the benchmarking data become available?

You will receive an email from us once the benchmarking data becomes available. And make sure to check your spam or junk folder, just in case.

Will everyone be able to see my data once benchmarks become available?

No, data included in the benchmarking analysis later in the year will NOT indicate where it came from and Lobby CRE’s platform is fully encrypted so your data is safe and anonymous.
