Homequant Introduces a Revolutionary Office Valuation App

Equity Crowd-funding  “Chefquant Solutions” on Indiegogo

Press Release

ORLANDO, Fla. PRLog -- Homequant, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of, a revolutionary 60-Second web solution to value office properties. Its internal algorithm can be applied to a lone property or en masse to produce excellent "First/Quick Look" values – from Trophy to Class A, B or C office classes – without having to enter any accounting data leading to the Net Operating Income or Cap Rates. All one needs to know is the sub-market the property is located in, an approximate rentable area and a few general characteristics that can easily be gathered by looking at the property online.

The SkylineValue web portal is also mobile-friendly, thus negating the need for separate mobile apps. As usual, it's totally free and no login or registration of any sort is required. Therefore, their invention is productive to users, either way – whether one needs to value a single subject property on-the-go or one who needs to value a group of similar or dissimilar properties quickly on a desktop.

The introduction of the SkylineValue solution makes it now possible to value an entire skyline of any major city in the world in matter of days, not years. Of course, their invention does more than just city skylines; it's equally equipped to value CBD peripheries and immediate suburbs.

They also understand that all Class-A, B and C Offices even in a given sub-market are not monolithic; instead, each class is highly diverse within its own universe causing wide variations in valuations. Consequently, they break down each Office Class into three sub-classes: Max, Mid and Min. The users are, therefore, required to specify if their subject is the Best in Class (Max), Mid-range (Mid) or Lower-end of the Class (Min), thus helping define each property more precisely, resulting in more accurate and uniform values. Additionally, ten property characteristics variables are provided to further fine-tune all subject values.

In short, their invention first helps specify the subject at the Sub-market and Office sub-class level, leading to the property-specific Rentable SF as well as the aforesaid ten property characteristics, thereby producing a highly accurate value at the property level.

The efficiency lies in the uniform implementation of their underlying valuation algorithm. In fact, their tests show an Office property – whether Trophy or A or B or C, with the aforesaid data available – can be valued in less than 60 seconds, making it the greatest "First/Quick Look" individual and mass office valuation system ever.

The SkylineValue solution is currently available for 75 major US and Canada Office markets (as of this release), including Manhattan, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, DC, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto and Vancouver and many more markets around the world will soon be covered. In fact, any major market with a skyline is their perfect target market.

While no learning curve is involved to use this solution, help is always right there in the form of a tutorial ('TRY IT') simulating the actual valuation process. Of course, everything is still in plain English, presented in an easy-to-understand format, without the usual appraisal jargon.

The SkylineValue solution will immensely help potential investors – who are evaluating competing properties – get quick values from their system, thus narrowing their choices down to the finalists requiring professional appraisals. It will help commercial researchers, portfolio managers, appraisers and assessors to sample portfolio pricing, without having to resort to full work-ups and/or outside appraisals. It will help the commercial real estate attorneys representing clients on assessment-related grievances as they can quickly evaluate the merit of each case, a priori.=

Since their solution works uniformly across all major markets, national investors, attorneys, hedge funds, REITs and appraisal houses will increasingly depend on their system as the go-to "First/Quick Look" valuation system due to its speed, consistency, accuracy and uniformity.

In a nutshell, the SkylineValue solution will revolutionize the office valuation market by adding the "First/Quick Look" valuation piece hitherto missing. Moreover, the fact that the user-inputted subject data and the resulting valuations are not stored anywhere in their system will provide high level of confidence and relief to the users in the sense that their activities are not being watched, nor are their values secretly warehoused.

Last but not least, they are considering several paid customizations, potentially allowing individual clients to redefine and customize their own markets, leading to their own internal and independent valuations.

The President of Homequant, Inc. recently explained this addition to their product suite: "With the launch of the SkylineValue Office Valuation web solution, we are proving our commitment to the property valuation industry as a whole.  We continue to show the valuation world how to achieve more with less. For instance, unlike the competition, we do not store the subject population data; instead, we let our users simulate their subjects considering that they know their subjects the best. Anyway, as we add more international markets to our repertoire, I have no doubt that professionals around the world will be depending on our system as the go-to first-look office valuation system."

What the Experts are Saying:

“I checked out and I have to say that its awesome.  This is a classic case of good things come in small packages.  I was excited to see that the Long Island market is included.  I could see this being a very handy tool for investors, appraisers, portfolio managers or just average Joe’s who like to dabble in Commercial real estate.   For my own purposes, I selected different parts of Long Island and different sub groups of properties and I was astonished at how much flexibility and how quickly I was able to retrieve accurate values without the need for full blown work ups.  The fact that I can get a valuation right on my device in about 60 seconds is a breath of fresh air.  I will be using SkylineValue regularly!”
