Commercial Complete is the COMPLETE real estate analysis tool for real
estate professionals. Designed especially for appraisers, but equally useful
to other real estate professionals for preparing Listing Presentations,
Broker Price Opinions and even residential narrative appraisals.
This software is so comprehensive that we can only touch on the basics
here. Since Commercial Complete was released three years ago, we have had
many, many questions - usually, can your software do this or can it do
that? The answer is nearly always "Yes it can." The best was
to find out what Commercial Complete can do for you is to call us. We will
give you a quick tour of the software on your computer.
Written words are the way that appraisers finally communicate with their
clients. But all of the analyses that precede the written reports are its
First and foremost, Commercial Complete was designed to handle the various
complicated analyses that an appraiser must do. The analysis capabilities
were not an afterthought.
Developed over more than twenty years, the Income Analysis capabilities in Commercial Complete are thorough, comprehensive, tested, and reliable..
It took more than seven years to develop Commercial Complete's Comparison Analysis functionality. The Cost Analysis functionality, in conjunction with Commercial Complete's database, took more than ten years to bring to its present state.
All of the analysis components have been "in the field" and used
by appraisers for the best part of a decade in our Investment Analyst product.
You can rely upon them.
But as powerful as these analysis components are, bringing the components under the name Commercial Complete required the capability to gather the various analyses and present them in a written report. Our word processing component, Narrative Complete, was introduced in 2010, after three years of development.
Finally, all of the components described above were integrated into a single
standalone product. Commercial Complete earns its name. It really is the
complete commercial real estate analysis tool. We touch upon some of its
features below. Click here to learn more about the evolution of Commercial Complete.
Creating Narratives and Reports - Word Processing
Built into Commercial Complete are powerful word processing capabilities
that are designed especially for real estate professionals. If your business
is real estate, it revolves around real property. So do our built-in word
processing editors, which are integrated with Commercial Complete's powerful
real estate database and income analysis capabilities. Data stored in any
property record in the real estate database can be inserted easily into
a Commercial Complete word processing document. Many automatically generated
property data and income analysis reports can also be easily inserted.
Commercial Compete can be used exclusively to create an entire narrative
report, for example a complete appraisal or marketing document. Or it can
be used to generate automated narrative sections that contain information
from a property record in the real estate database. Then these sections
can be easily copied and pasted with the click of a button into the word
processor that you use on a daily basis.
There is no need to change from your present word processor immediately
in order to benefit from the many advantages of automating your narratives.
When you are ready to switch to Commercial Complete for all of your word
processing needs, Commercial Complete is ready for you.
Partial narratives like the Income Approach or Sales Comparison Approach
can also be created by Commercial Complete and pasted into your favorite
word processor without disrupting your present method of producing your
final reports. It will not be long, though, before you are using our software
to create your entire narrative appraisal.
Powerful word processing built-in simplifies the preparation of Narrative

Or assemble automated narrative sections of your document in Commercial Complete and copy directly to your main word processor (MS Word or Word Perfect). Formatting remains intact, including styles, and tables. This is an excellent way to automate your documents while continuing to use the word processor that you have grown comfortable with. See Narrative Builder Overview for more information.
Real Estate Database Learn More
Commercial Complete provides complete data management capabilities to keep track of real property information. The comprehensive list of items that you can enter (more than 250 fields) includes address, location, assessed value, sale price, sale date, and photographs, to name just a few items in the long list. Data storage and retrieval is easy. You can also compare properties, print Property Datasheets, print Comparable Grids and print lists of similar properties.

Sales Comparison AnalysisLearn More
The Sales Comparison analysis functions enable you attach up to 6 "Comparables
Groups" (Sales, Land, Rent, etc.) to each subject property. Each Comparables
Group can contain up to 9 properties. Every Property Record in your real
estate database is a potential "subject" for a Comparison Analysis.
And every Property Record is also a potential "comparable." Grids
can also be created that are based upon income multipliers, expense ratios,
and the capitalization rate of each comparable property.
These analyses are done in the Property Data Section of Commercial Complete.
Income Analysis Learn More
Investment Analyst, a powerful income analysis tool in its own right, is
incorporated into Commercial Complete. Analyst has been used by real estate
professionals for more than 20 years to analyze and value income producing
real estate. Using advanced mathematical techniques, it calculates the
value, based upon the yield requirements and projections of the analyst.
Financing, closing costs, selling expenses, income growth, and property
appreciation are among the many factors considered. Holding periods can
range between 1 and 60 years. Reports can be printed, pasted, or saved
to an Excel spreadsheet, PDF file, or RTF file. Reports can be merged directly
into your narrative reports.
Building Cost Aggregation - Development of Building Costs
Buildings, building components, and other property improvements can be
described individually for each property record - including building and/or
component costs. Based upon the cost information that you provide (from
Marshall Valuation or another cost reporting service), Commercial Complete
will calculate the depreciated cost of each building and/or component and
then aggregate these individual items into a total building cost. This
function is performed in the Property Data section of Commercial Complete.
Other Real Estate Software
If you have used, or are considering, other real estate programs, then
you know how confusing they can be to navigate from function to function
and screen to screen. There is a reason for this. They are not stand-alone
programs, designed from scratch with integrated functionality. Rather,
other real estate software relies upon a combination of programs like MS
Word or MS Excel that are pieced together to accomplish their functions.
Usually, they are not designed or written by professional software engineers
who are skilled at making software that is comprehensive and easy to use.
Imagine for a moment that you are designing a new house. Instead of dedicating
a separate room for the kitchen, you decide that it is easier and cheaper
to just purchase the kitchen equipment and place it in rooms throughout
the house - the refrigerator in the bedroom, the kitchen sink in the living
room, the stove in the dining room, and the kitchen cabinets in the den.
If you later need a dishwasher, there will be extra space in the bathroom.
All of the kitchen functions would be in the house, but what a chore it
would be to make dinner.
Remember that most other real estate software "systems" are really
form-filling programs that rely upon software products like Microsoft Word,
Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Access to actually do anything. Jump from
spreadsheet to spreadsheet to fill in a series of blanks and out comes
a cookie-cutter report. Hard to understand and use, limited or no analysis
capability and limited customization options. It looks like everything,
including the kitchen sink, has been thrown in. But using these products?
Go to this spreadsheet for this, go to that spreadsheet for that. Now you
can load MS Word. Did you include all of the separate sections that you
need? Make sure to close the MS Word document after printing or you will
slow down your computer? Good Luck. It is easier to cut and paste from
old documents. These products cannot compare to what Commercial Complete
We write our software from scratch - and it shows. All functions are integrated
and no other software is needed. We do not use MS Word, MS Excel, or MS
Access. Our house has a beautifully designed, functional kitchen that is equally useful for creating snacks and gourmet meals.
It is never necessary to roam the house in search of the refrigerator.
Latest Design Technology
Commercial Complete is based upon the latest technology. We have looked
at other real estate software. They cannot compare to Commercial Complete
when it comes to image storage, analysis capabilities, ease of use, level
of features, word processing capabilities, or quality of reports. Most,
if not all, are based on older technologies. And our research suggests
that many carry high annual maintenance fees. Worse yet, these products
have a weak history of upgrading their products to keep pace with new technologies
(MsDos, then Windows 95, then Windows 98, then ME, then XP, then Vista,
then Windows 7, then Windows 8, then ….).
Commercial Complete and Investment Analyst have a long history. We
have made steady improvements over the years; 18 major upgrades in 23 years.
And we do not require annual maintenance fees. You can upgrade when
the time is right for you.

Integration is the KeySee Video
The many features of Commercial Complete are fully integrated into a single
standalone product. This is very important.
Integrated design means that you do not need MS Office or any other product.
You do not have to navigate among 20 different confusing spreadsheets and
a real estate database with limited functionality.
Integration means that you do not have to worry about linking spreadsheets
to a word processing document, or accidently deleting a link or deleting
a line in the spreadsheet.
Integration also means that the Help system is integrated and specific.
Click on any item in Commercial Complete and get specific information -
not help on how to use MS Word or Excel. You can even add your own help
notes to any database field or word processing document.
Other "Systems" We frequently get calls from persons who purchased one of the many "systems"
that is designed around MS Office.
After spending considerable time learning the "system", they
cannot use it because of its piecemeal design. It is just too difficult
to navigate among the various MS Office programs: Excel, Access and Word.
Even if you are an expert MS Office user who understands how links and
macros work, it is a difficult task. If you modify or delete a link, well,
You will use CC Every Day Commercial Complete is designed to be used every day for all of your real
estate related tasks. You will use it every day while researching a property,
gathering information on comparables, analyzing the comparables, analyzing
the income of a property, developing the building's cost, and finally,
easily creating automated narratives.
The COMPLETE Software Solution Our software was designed from scratch and it shows. It is not pieced together by creating spreadsheets and then linking the spreasheets to an MS Word document. There are dozens of "systems" that do that, none of them very effectively.
