Best commercial real estate listings websites
As with any form of technology, commercial real estate listings platforms evolve constantly. Below, we’ve listed out all of the listings websites we believe enable brokerage and investment teams to identify the most opportunities. There are a variety of platforms included, from those that cover all commercial asset types, to those that only cover offices, mobile home parks, and so on.
Reonomy off-market properties
Most of the listings platforms found would be considered “on the market,” since assets are actively being advertised as for sale. Reonomy is an off-market search platform that gives you access to the entire supply of commercial, multi family, and land assets in the United States.
For example, when looking for a potential property to buy, you can filter your property search with the relevant building and transaction criteria. You might filter for properties within your focus zip code and ideal asset type.
Then, it’s as simple as searching for properties that are likely to sell.
Using these search results, you can begin generating a lead list of the most likely-to-sell assets from your selected property type and/or geography. Reonomy’s owner contact information also goes beyond the name of an LLC, showing you the names, phone numbers, email, and mailing addresses of the individuals associated with LLCs.
