Unlock Valuable Benefits to Improve Your Office Building’s Performance

Each year, BOMA International offers the most comprehensive benchmarking resource for the office sector: the Office EER. But in order for BOMA to provide this critical resource to the commercial real estate industry once again this year, we need you to share your data with the 2019 Office EER survey.

Turn Your Data into a Competitive Advantage

Not only is your participation in this annual survey essential to ensuring BOMA continues to capture the best and most accurate benchmarking information in the industry for its forthcoming 2019 report, but sharing your data also unlocks a number of valuable benefits to help you improve your building’s performance. When you complete the survey, you will:

Gain priority access to the 2019 reports—and receive the deepest submitter discounts ever offered on your subscription;

Receive a free Market Snapshot*, which offers top-level income and expense data you can use to broadly assess how your property compares to others in the same market;

Fulfill a prerequisite for applying for, maintaining or renewing your building's BOMA 360 designation; and

Help create the best and most accurate benchmarking tools in the industry, which can then be used to assess income and expenses, validate business strategies, create budgets and more when they are launched in June.

*The Market Snapshot will offer overview data for your market. Dig deeper into the individual line items by purchasing a full market report.

Completing the Survey Is Easy

Any commercial property can submit 2018 year-end income and expense data to the 2019 surveys, regardless of whether or not the property is owned or managed by a BOMA member. The online submission form allows most respondents to finish in about 30 minutes, but there’s no need to complete an entire survey at once. Save your answers as you go and return to the form as many times as needed before the March 30 deadline.
