New users

Get started in just a few minutes by registering, then follow the tutorials to get your data submitted. We’ll show you how to set up your account, add your property information and submit your income/expense data.

After submissions close on June 1, Lobby CRE’s team of data experts prepare benchmarking data that will be available later this year. Data submitters will receive a complimentary 2022 benchmark report which includes apartment income/expense data for all markets.

Your data is always anonymous and you’ll always have access to it. 

Still have questions? Reach out to Lobby CRE Team to help along the way with any questions.

Organizations submitting data on 20 or more buildings will receive onboarding support for the new system by connecting you with the Lobby CRE Team. Please contact us directly at: [email protected]. Our partners at Lobby CRE will then reach out to you directly to initiate your onboarding.

How do I purchase benchmarks?

What should I do if I’m an IREM member who has already submitted my 2022 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.

What complimentary asset management course will I receive from IREM?

IREM is extending one complimentary asset management course to all participants in this year’s Income/Expense IQ. You’ll have the option of selecting from numerous topics, including apartments, office, industrial and more.
