New to Argus (AE) - Best Practices
I am new to CRE and just started working as an analyst for a REPE firm. I have never used Argus before but started using it today. I have a lot of questions and am hoping someone on WSO can help me out. I am working for a small firm in the Midwest and am the only analyst (only person that has an Argus license). The firm I am working for is looking to acquire office's (mainly high-rise's) through out the country. I would like to get some best practices from experienced individuals.
When presented with an OM & Argus file, do you create your own Argus file from scratch or just manipulate the Argus file that was provided? If you just manipulate, what are some key things to change/look for?
Additionally, I am having trouble finding any training on the latest version of AE (11.6.2). If anyone has any material, please let me know. I am thinking about purchasing some of the Argus e-learning material but am not sure if it will be helpful enough to justify the expense... Thoughts?
