February 12, 2018, San Diego, CA -EDR, a national provider of data, applications, and insight for the property due diligence industry, today announced at the Mortgage Bankers Association's CREF/Multifamily Conference it has partnered with CompStak to deliver commercial real estate transaction information through the Collateral360® platform. Under the agreement, EDR will offer CompStak's lease comp data, as well as other property level information to its client base of over 980 lending institutions.
CompStak's data supports decision making throughout the real estate investment lifecycle, from improving underwriting accuracy during origination to loan disposition. It helps in determining asset value and enhances the valuation process with detailed lease information to support income analysis, including starting rents, lease terms, tenant improvements, and rent escalations. Lenders can make key income assumptions based on real market value using CompStak.
EDR's Collateral360 platform is a web-based application that streamlines critical lending processes such as collateral valuation, environmental investigations, flood investigations, site inspections and other third-party services and information critical to underwriting and managing real estate assets.
"The addition of CompStak's property data and analytics to our Collateral360 platform represents another step towards our vision of providing a single platform that simplifies the process of underwriting and managing real estate assets," said Dean Graves, president and COO of EDR, Inc. "The collection and analysis of property information is perhaps the most time consuming and resource dependent aspect of real estate lending. Having quick access to information allows for more thorough analysis." Graves added that CompStak data will be available on its Collateral360 platform in the first quarter of 2018.
"Many of the world's largest lenders already use CompStak to underwrite commercial real estate assets. Our partnership with EDR allows us to broaden our reach to nearly 1,000 new lenders across the country. The integration of our platforms will create efficiency in appraisal, appraisal review and asset management, while ensuring that the best data is used in the underwriting process. We couldn't be happier to work with EDR to power the property due diligence industry."
