Commercial Real Estate Listings
With so many different CRE listing platforms on the market, it’s difficult to decipher which are right for you.
If you’re a commercial broker, you need to ensure your listing reaches the most potential buyers possible. If you’re an investor, you need to find the best opportunities that will expand your portfolio while maximizing ROI.
To help with your decision-making process, we’ve compiled a list of the major commercial real estate listing websites. But note: not all of these commercial real estate listing sites are created equally—make sure to do your research on what works best for your needs specifically, based on the data offered, ease of use, and cost of each platform.
Best Commercial Real Estate Listings Websites
As with any tech, platforms change consistently, so it’s important to keep up to date on CRE tech trends and get the best deal for your company.
To get started, here is a definitive guide to the top sites for finding, listing or marketing your commercial or multi family properties in any U.S. market.
Reonomy Off-Market Listings
Commercial real estate properties are divided into two distinct categories: on-market and off-market.
On-market listings are properties that are actively being advertised as for sale, and can typically be found on commercial real estate listing websites.
Off-market properties are those not actively being sold—a much larger portion of the CRE supply. Since these properties aren’t being advertised or worked by brokers, they offer more flexible opportunities for both buyers and sellers.
The Reonomy platform covers over 50 million properties nationwide, including those off-market and for sale.
When looking for potential property to buy, you can use Reonomy to find new opportunities by filtering a property search with the relevant criteria.
For example, you may filter for all properties that are within your zip code and asset class focus. You can filter your search for properties that haven’t sold within the last 10 years.
Since the average holding period of a commercial asset is 10 years, you will be generating a lead list of the most likely to sell assets from your selected property type and/or geography.
Reonomy provides property owner contact information beyond the LLC, including names, phone number, emails and mailing addresses. You can use this contact information to systematically contact your curated lead list and win new listings.
Reonomy can also help you skip listings platforms altogether and look for real estate investors and buyers looking to expand their portfolios.
You can search for recent sellers in your area that may have cash on hand, or explore the portfolio of recent buyers who may be looking for properties similar to your listings.
