The Problem with Spreadsheets For Real Estate Developers

Excel has long been a valuable tool for Real Estate Developers since its inception, but the program currently functions as more of a puzzle piece rather than an end-to-end solution for construction projects. Tracking projects on spreadsheets presents numerous issues for finance professionals and project managers.

Primarily, functions such as job costing are rudimentary, and plugging data into cells requires time-consuming manual entry. Inputting labor and materials costs in this fashion also subjects large projects to overestimation or underestimation, which could result from even a single misstated value or errant formula.

In this scenario, the inability to catch inaccurate projected expenses can lead to narrower realized margins, which will have a negative impact on the bottom line for owners or investors.

Also, since there are numerous ways to track job progress, each internal controller or CFO will likely have their own method of recording essential project information. Should any of these stakeholders exit the organization, more time must be spent on either learning how existing data flows work or redeveloping a new approach to land development accounting from the ground up. Valuable resources must then be allocated to a process that should be consistent as well as easy to learn and use.
