Cost segregation Solutions

How we provide value

Speed, accuracy, and validation are key to assessing a structure. Hosta Labs’ Hopper A.I. creates a deeper understanding of structures than a human expert can in a comparable timeframe, it is highly repeatable, and cost-efficient. We will augment the cost segregation process while enhancing customer satisfaction due to faster executed studies. We will augment the value assessment for an property significantly contributing to accurate, well documented, IRS approved cost segregation. 

Our Solution

Hosta Labs’  Structural assessment solution, Hopper A.I., goes beyond just object detection and measurements. Our A.I. exceeds  human assessment by consistently identifying and measuring objects and structures with greater detail.  No matter how often the same structure is assessed, the outcome will be the same. We create a bill of materials and CAD models for every space. We fully augment risk, claim pricing, and replacement value detection from simple images, videos, or 3D scans.

Unlike conventional A.I. solutions that don’t provide spatial relationships, dimensions and material properties, we take unstructured data and place it in a real-world context to provide a built environment that is detailed and accurate. Hosta’s co-founder and CEO, Rachelle Villalon, is the inventor of Hopper’s patent-pending algorithm. She is as an  MIT Ph.D. in Computer Vision and Architecture. Our product is named after Grace Hopper, a female force in computer science and a thought leader that enabled modern-based computer languages.


Value Drivers


According to our customers, a structure assessed by 2 different people will reveal two different outcomes that differ beyond 10% in replacement values or valuation. We are providing a single source of truth with detail than can be captured at accuracy level by human experts today .


Current turn around times: Commercial: several hours to a week to determine risks Residential: (value beyond 750k): risks and values are never fully captured Residential Claim assessment: especially for larger claims up to several days

Reduced Costs

Current costs associated with: Claims: average cost associated with claim pricing $350 per claim – with an average of 30,000 claims per month across the industry – costs are $4.8M
