Pros: By having a system like CoStar, where you can drive business results and meet the new accounting requirements, I think it¿s a much easier sell across your business. While there are plenty of choices in the marketplace, I think it¿s the best all-around choice.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Overall: What stands out for me about the CoStar system is it¿s a system that¿s been around for a long time and it was designed to meet the needs of accounting departments. CoStar, when I compare to other systems that I¿ve used or systems that I¿ve seen, it has an advantage of being very intuitive.

Recommendations to other buyers: CoStar has this feature that you can calculate a date ranges on any screen in the system and in my experience as a Lease Accounting Manager at a huge corporation, this would have added years back into my life.

Thanks, Matt! We've enjoyed working with you to solve the challenges of lease accounting compliance.

Beware! They will renew your agreement even if you do not want it.

Pros: They do have a lot of listings, and it is easy to use. The listings that are not renewals show pictures on most of the listings.

Cons: We were using the software to target new businesses moving into our territory and I was assured that they would have contacts we could talk to about our services. Unfortunately the reality was that many contacts were outdated. Some had been gone from the company for several years or even deceased. When I sent the contacts to be researched, nothing happened and I was told we could still use the service as we now know about companies moving. I could get that information much cheaper and even free. When it comes time to cancel, they have conveniently buried an auto-renew policy in the contract, something that is not even legal in Chicago and are trying to get me to pay for a service that never worked as promised.

Overall: We really did not see a benefit, it was a waste of time to have my team chase down dead contacts and contacts that were gone. When they did reach someone they wanted nothing to do with our company and were mad at Costar too.

CoStar is very easy to use, provides great results.

Pros: I like that everything you need to know about a property or development is all laid out in one platform with different tabs - very visually appealing and easy to navigate.

Cons: I have found that information is sometimes out of date. CoStar could possibly look in to a way to stay more up-to-date.

Very Useful for property management

Pros: This software is great for looking at market conditions in a specific area, reviewing competitors & gathering data for your own properties.

Cons: Can be a little difficult to navigate. I had no training with the software and I had to play around with it a little to find the information I was looking for.

CoStar is user friendly, best choice of software!

Pros: CoStar is very easy to navigate and will help you get the results you need to make a real estate decision.

Cons: I wish the software would update more rapidly, but besides that con I cannot think of anything else.

Costar is a great tool when you know how to use it.

Pros: I like the fact that all the commercial data that is out there is in one place. Customer support is good and they will find contact information without issues when not already there.

Cons: I don't like the fact that it is pricey and it should be easier to use and have more tools. The report options should have more criteria to run these reports.

Overall: You do get a lot of information in one place and I like the fact that most of the times it has the true owner information and updated leasing information.
