Offerd, an Austin-based proptech providing multifamily “Acquisitions-as-a-Service” technology, announced this week a series of key upgrades to its platform, according to a press release.
The company says these new features include “expanded research capabilities, seamless communications to optimize active strategies and enhanced visibility into ongoing campaigns.”
Offerd says these upgrades will improve its existing technology, which provides capital groups data via a visual environment dashboard, to expand the market for third-party acquisitions. The company also makes offers to property owners on behalf of partner capital groups as part of its service stack.
“Nearly half of all multifamily acquisitions are still made by the same handful of investors with strong acquisition capabilities in-house. Meanwhile, the multifamily market has made it through the pandemic with greater resilience and vitality than every other real estate segment—there’s undeniable potential here for investors in every category,” stated Travis Farese, founder and CEO of Offerd, in the release.
The company noted that all of its services are designed to facilitate additional deal flow, and said that it works with many multifamily operators to identify prospects based on specified parameters, conduct research, initiate negotiations and accelerate deal closing.
Offerd’s visual data platform currently features approximately 100,000 multifamily properties across the country, with the company stating most are off-market. This data set includes demographics encompassing rents, valuations, occupancy rates, demographic shifts, neighborhood incomes and deal-focused information such as “deal likeliness.”
The company also noted that it has sourced more than $5 billion in off-market multifamily assets since 2020, has added more than two dozen professionals in the past few months and says these upgrades indicate a continuing motion of growth for the company.
