Boost Your Industrial Property’s Performance

BOMA International has revolutionized how business is done in the industrial sector. Each year, it offers the only benchmarking resource of its kind in the commercial real estate industry specifically tailored to the industrial sector: the Industrial 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 Industrial EER survey.

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 industrial property’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 industrial property can submit 2018 year-end income and expense data to the 2019 survey, 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.

Still Available: The Industrial Sector’s Most Powerful Business Tool

Industrial properties are built on a foundation of data. But if you're only looking at the numbers from your own property, you're not getting the whole story. Without context, these facts and figures—rental rates, operating expenses, occupancy—don’t tell you much about how well your property is operating in comparison to its competition.

BOMA International’s annual Industrial Experience Exchange Report gives you the context you need to make this data work for you.

The Industrial EER is the commercial real estate industry’s only benchmarking resource for the industrial sector. With the information found in this report, you can:

  • Evaluate and refine operational strategies;
  • Maximize industrial asset performance;
  • Demonstrate to owners and tenants how operating expenses compare to the market average;
  • Identify trends in local, regional and national markets with historical data; and more!

With data collected from thousands of industrial properties across more than 100 U.S. markets, the 2018 Industrial EER offers valuable sector-specific information, including:

  • Income (Base rent, pass-throughs, operating expense escalations, etc.);
  • Expenses (Exterior building maintenance, management fees, amortizable capital expenditures, etc.);
  • Average square footage per tenant and tenant employee; and
  • Occupancy data.

Create Your Own Customized Reports

Office EER Since no two industrial properties are exactly alike, the Industrial EER’s advanced online database allows subscribers to design customized reports by building type, by lease type, by location and even by property characteristics such as size or age to ensure the benchmarking information you access best speaks to your individual property.

Whether you own, manage or occupy a bulk warehouse, a distribution center, a manufacturing facility, R&D or lab space, a call or data center, a cold storage facility or flex space, only the Industrial EER has the data you need to remain competitive in the fast-growing industrial marketplace.

Industrial properties aren't the only buildings that can benefit from benchmarking data.
