In its article titled “Artificial Intelligence’s ‘Bad Data’ Problem for Real Estate Investment,” the Urban Land Institute highlights several challenges of using AI in real estate asset management, most notably the data it relies on. The promise of AI to revolutionize asset management is hampered by data that is not standardized, integrated, or reliable.  

For AI and automation to truly reach their potential in the industry – and to ensure high-quality, reliable data – real estate asset management data must be: 

  • Aggregated 
  • Standardized 
  • Normalized 

Unfortunately, data fragmentation is pervasive across the industry. 

Portfolio and asset managers often receive data from software programs that do not – and cannot – communicate with each other, leading to inconsistencies and inefficiencies.  For many real estate asset management firms, there is no option for consolidating data, which leads to inaccuracies and errors that create challenges around both standard and ad hoc reporting. 

All of this adds up, making solid business decisions difficult at best – which can significantly impact a firm’s ability to effectively manage its portfolio. 

‘Apples to Apples’ 

The ULI article emphasizes a need for “apples to apples” comparisons in data, which is only possible through rigorous data normalization. This is precisely the constant struggle Singerman Real Estate, a Chicago-based investment firm, dealt with in its real estate data management. Tired of this challenge, Singerman decided to solve this quandary with Pereview.
