PIA Group USA Completes Portfolio Transformation with Yardi Matrix


Private equity real estate investor gains comprehensive property-level data for evaluating potential multifamily property acquisitions

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Nov. 12, 2018 – PIA Group USA has completed a decade-long transformation of its portfolio from single family homes to multifamily properties, relying on Yardi® Matrix for market intelligence to identify and evaluate acquisitions.

PIA initially created its own solution for managing acquisitions. After finding software maintenance a burdensome addition to its core acquisition, remodeling and management activities, the company selected an outside solution. PIA ultimately turned to Yardi Matrix for more sophisticated property-level data than its previous provider could deliver.

“Our first step was identifying the markets we wanted to expand into, which included Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas and Texas. The next step was accessing the comprehensive property-level drilldown that only Yardi Matrix can provide, including senior loan abstracts, lease rents, occupancy, forecasts and expense comp-set data,” said Saul Levy, managing partner for PIA. “Deep-dive analysis from Yardi Matrix helps us close deals. Our analysts have been very happy with the platform, and we completed our strategic portfolio migration on schedule.”

Yardi Matrix also identifies the true owners of a property, facilitating the process of building a relationship or expanding an existing one when PIA already knows the owner.

“Yardi first helped PIA improve lease execution and resident services with paperless processes and mobile capabilities delivered via solutions from the Yardi® Multifamily Suite. Yardi Matrix takes this relationship to a new level by helping PIA achieve its goal of becoming an institutional-size multifamily property owner,” said Jeff Adler, vice president of Yardi Matrix.
