Income/Expense IQ

IREM’s Income/Expense IQ provides you digitally upgraded property income and expense benchmarks—giving you actionable insights and identifying opportunities for you to operate efficiently and drive value for your owners and tenants. Benchmarks are updated monthly with new data so you can always stay on-top of your building’s performance.

Compare the performance of your properties in real time, collaborate with your teammates, and filter data in one interactive dashboard. Benchmarks reflecting 2020 data are available for three asset classes:

  • Conventional apartment
  • Office
  • Industrial

The data submissions period is now open! Review the steps below to submit your 2021 data by June 1, 2022 for any property type.

How to submit your data

Now accepting submissions for all property types. Conventional apartment data collected in partnership with the National Apartment Association (NAA).

National Apartment Association

Existing users: Access I/E IQ to submit your 2021 building data, or to add more buildings.

New users: Getting started takes just a few minutes. Once you register, 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.. Have data for more than 20 properties to submit? Learn about high-volume submissions.

After submissions close on June 1, 2022, Lobby CRE’s team of data experts clean and prepare benchmarking data that will be available later this year. When the benchmarking data is available, you will receive an email from us. Data submitters will receive a complimentary 2021 benchmark report for one asset class, all MSAs.

Your data is always anonymous – 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. You’ll always have access to your own data.
