Beach Investment Management Improves Its Acquisition Process with Yardi Matrix


Market intelligence tool holds status as ‘another expert in the room’ for decision-making

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Jan. 29, 2020 – Beach Investment Management, an affiliate of The Beach Company, often has multiple property transactions in progress and dozens more under consideration. Instead of being overwhelmed by this volume, the company makes informed acquisition and investment decisions using Yardi® Matrix, a comprehensive market intelligence tool for investment professionals, equity investors, lenders and property managers who underwrite and manage real estate investments.

“Yardi Matrix lets us see not only rents in the area but also key demographic data such as median area income, home prices, population growth and occupancy rates. This is the granular data that we need to identify strong acquisition opportunities,” said Darby Parker, Acquisitions Manager for Beach Investment Management. “It’s great to have the macro view, but we need the live, minute-to-minute detail on properties and submarkets that Yardi Matrix provides. We can get this information fast, often while mobile.  Yardi Matrix is truly an invaluable data source.”

Data collected by Yardi Matrix helps The Beach Company understand whether a local market can support rent increases, and what property repair and maintenance costs can be expected. This data and additional information on residential, commercial and regional housing markets can be turned into comps or documents for underwriters, analysts, investors and others.

“Yardi Matrix is like having another expert in the room who helps us reach a decision and identify appropriate action. It provides unparalleled market exposure and insight,” Parker said.
