Participate in the 2018 EER Surveys
EER Survey - banner

Benchmarking your commercial property against others in BOMA International’s Experience Exchange Report (EER) can save you up to 3% each year on operating expenses. The first step to achieving these savings is sharing data from your building or portfolio with this year’s Office EER or Industrial EER survey.

Participating in the 2018 EER surveys unlocks a number of valuable benefits to help you improve your building’s performance, from priority access and discounts on 2018 report subscriptions to a free top-level Market Snapshot—and much more.

Any commercial property can submit prior-year income and expense data to the 2018 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 30th deadline.

Remember: All data submitted is kept in strictest confidence, and only market-level information is published.
