Dishonest business practices destroying a community and its way of life with no concerns for the citizens.

Costar has been a horrible company to deal with over the years, since they acquired Loopnet they have systematically increased pricing and have changed terms consistently for greater profits without any regards for the brokerage community. There business model revolves around getting data (FOR FREE) from the brokerage community and selling it back to the brokerage community at absurdly high rates which they increase every chance they get. If the brokerage community treated there clients 1/10th as bad as costar treats their clients the brokers would have no clients... they are in every sense of the word a monopoly and their acquisition of other companies has done nothing but hurt the industry.

This has been an issue for a while. I need more then a short sentence but absolutely agree that they have made themselves a monopoly and I am forced to use them.

If I don’t use costar or their services I would not be in business. I am required to pay them to do many aspects of my business and their pricing model reflects the lack of choices I have. They are too powerful in our industry and needs to have significant changes to their business operations.

I have been using Costar since 2005 and watched them grew. It's a valuable tool in the commercial real estate industry, but I have watched them take advantage and acquire other resources, and as a result, seen them increase the price well above 75% to the user like myself. The commercial real estate industry would be better off if Costar were broken up into 4 or 5 companies. Break this monopoly.

Co-Star charges an exorbitant amount of money to advertise listings, we as broker go out and obtain from sellers. We gather all of the data. We are than charged for the info we go out and obtain and provide to co-star. Its absolutely ridiculous.
