Dig deeper into your commercial real estate portfolio

Consistent Commercial Real Estate (CRE) tenant and portfolio risk assessment is critical now more than ever. Many executives are not proactively evaluating commercial tenant risk, which may result in cash flow issues with late rent payments, or worse, with tenants going out of business and the cost of vacant commercial office space. Don't get left behind.

Over 6 million commercial office retail, and industrial buildings

  • 14.7 million tenants in those buildings
  • Tenant firmographic data and commercial company risk score


Equifax builds out the dataset with all reported business addresses. Equifax evaluates the numerous data sources identifying companies at an address. The aggregated company list is ranked based on Equifax’s model and that drives the Active tenant list. The final results display all buildings with active tenants.
  • Residential buildings are currently excluded
  • Companies that do not meet our definition of active defined as not having activity associating the business at an address within the last 180 days
  • Buildings with >1000 tenants associated with the address
  • The address is a PO Box

The scoring model requires enough inputs to be able to score the company. If a company does not have any obligations (credit) to be scored or if the obligations are in a different entity name from the tenant name then the report is unable to display the score.

If you do not see a tenant you would expect at a location, then that company was not identified as Active at that address based on the model. This could be because there are no sources identifying the company at the location within the last 180 days. Sources may not have reported the company with an accurate address to match them at the location. If the company was reported as dissolved by the secretary of state they will be excluded.

Companies are identified as an Active tenant at a location if there is a source that provides a service address, billing address, or the address used on an application indicating that business is conducted at that location. While the model looks to confirm and validate sources, if a company is incorrectly identified with an address over a period of time or multiple sources indicate that a business is there, then the business is included in the tenant list for that building.
