A guide to JLL’s tech tools

Following the launch of Valorem, JLL’s valuations tool built to help clients better understand asset risks and opportunities, PlaceTech looks at the firm’s growing suite of products.

Incorporating JLL’s global property valuation data, Valorem was created to give clients the information they need to make better decisions about their portfolios.

The tool aims to give clients a single platform for organising and managing their portfolio, property and valuation data.

Investors using the platform can monitor and report on market movements in their portfolios. Meanwhile, lenders are able to quickly assess their underwriting position to better understand opportunities and risks.

Valorem’s launch comes months after JLL announced the NXT i-Log, a tool for the industrial sector that gives investors access to a list of assets that suit their specific needs alongside contextual data, such as demographics, natural risks and market indicators.

Alongside its data management features, Valorem also includes:

  • The ability to work collaboratively and share information between team members
  • Portfolio tracking
  • Interactive risk assessment features

JLL said that speeding up the loan underwriting process has increased in importance to its clients.

Real-time valuations

The latest product, Valorem, introduces an automated valuation model (AVM) for the multi-housing rental market, tracking real-time rental values.

The tool – built on statistical models, valuations and JLL’s database – quickly calculates an apartment’s rental value at a specific point in time by analysing comparable transactions, current asking prices, historical price movements and property attributes.

Mark Wynne-Smith, CEO of valuations at JLL UK, said: “With the assistance of Valorem and AVMs, users can instantly assess opportunity and risk through a platform that centrally manages all global valuation property data over time – and so provides a reliable benchmark.”
