This option details expenses on a typical line item basis. An expense breakdown will be supplied for each property type category, in a format similar to the following:

Expenses as a Percentage, typical detail: Expenses per Square Foot, typical detail:

Grounds . . . . . . . . . 15% - 20% Insurance . . . . . . . $0.12 - $0.15

  • Market Specific Guide, customized with local lease practice info, data, demographics, and more.

IMPORTANT! IncomeWorks looks easy and basic; it was specifically designed to appear that way and to be easy to use. But... IncomeWorks is actually a very complex multilayered program. It contains market specific data (analyzed by MAIs), and has elaborate weighting systems (also market specific) with intricate modeling features. In addition to the Copyright and Registered Trademarks, IncomeWorks is protected by U.S. Patent 7,676,428.

This HAS NEVER BEEN DONE... until now.
