Commercial Real Estate

28 useful websites for commercial real estate practitioners

CRE  Sites. The next 28:

Well, here we are again.  I received tremendous response from my last post highlighting some of the more interesting cre sites out there.  So I figured why not feature 28 more?

Think what you will but, there are absolutely NO strategy, bias, bribes, malice, favor, or kickbacks (I wish) involved. I just think they may provide some type of value to CRE people online.

MYROFO– on top again but this time for augmented reality office search app. These guys just keep pushing the edge.

Minutebids– starting with online bids nationwide for contractors and affiliates. This platform has no limits for cre growth.

Corelogic Metroscan– I’m not going to explain. You have to click and bookmark this site. The data is amazing.

CreGrow– The first wordpress based cre affordable template website.  Finally!

Bayareacomre– One of the great blogs from the new breed of cre agent. These two know how to do it everyday. Just steal their ideas!

BOMA -Just too much stuff. I can’t stop reading.  Did I say ULI was one of the best associations? UH…

Commercialsource–  NAR commercial site. Packed full of content and nationwide cre search. Ok, I am biased for “The Godmother”

CREOBA-CRE REO Association. I hate to say it but, they are kicking ass, in a good way.

Dataquick– They say that they are the real estate information experts.  You tell me.

Retail Property Analyst– The name kinda says it all.

Creconsole– Platform for brokers and investors.

Real Bird. Ok, this is a residential like thing but, it’s a facebook based property search. We don’t have one for cre yet?

Retechsouth– This is a must attend event. They are looking for some CRE traction Y’all.

Catylist–  I still like the simple clean way they put out the data.

Crepig– Huge cre network

Investcapadvisors– CMBS surveillance, distressed debt, maturing loans. They have the data.

IREM– Institute of real estate management. Is it more important than ever?

Proxio– worldwide mega all property searches.

Rejournals– Great info on deal and brokers by regions.

DcrealestateCitybizlist– Huge cre and business news resource for 10 plus major markets.

Picor– Cre firm out west just doing a lot of things right. Do they have girl power?

Greenbuildingfocus– I have got to go to this thing. Thousands of cre people attend.  Just look at the speakers and itinerary.

Rcanalytics– On the list before but this is the cre troubled assets search. Worth a look.

Equityinternational– Sam Zell’s firm. Talk about not caring if he is left off the list.  Cre porn?

ICSC– doesn’t everyone know what this is. Vegas Baby!

Stdb– ccim site to do business.

Globest– Cre everything.  Launching something new in a couple of weeks.

Ladinventures– A new young firm up north kicking some real ass.  My Boys!

There we go.  Want to add some more?  Want to send me e-mails anonymous and gripe?  Want to talk, engage, debate and just say how cool some of these are?  Well, get inspired and do something… maybe online!

    Thanks Duke. Appreciate it as always. Fyi, we go by just plain ol’ rofo (though i have a blog called myrofo). And when did corelogic start borrowing our logo? -Alan

    Nice list!

    Sometimes long lists are bit overwhelming, kinda like being given the paint fan deck and having to go through hundreds of colors.

    @Duke ~ Some more decent links here. You keep comin’ up with killer commercial stuff.

    @Alan ~ Based on their logo, it appears that CoreLogic is only about 1/3 of Rofo 😉

    Just wanted to make sure you were aware of ePropertyData. An 11 year old commercial real estate technology company that was purchased by NAR over 2 years ago. In addition to operating for NAR we build CIE and commercial MLS systems across the country. We build and support both broker loaded and researched platforms and our largest client to date – the Commercial Brokers Association in the Pacific NW is the largest commercial mls in the country. We are currently launching a commercial MLS for CARETS in Southern CA and a commercial MLS for Grand Rapids, MI. Next month we will officially launch a reasearched CIE in Miami and there are others you can see on our site.

    Good list Duke, but both lists include a lot of sites which are or seem cool, but the regression will be to the CoStar’s and LoopNet’s of the world for the most part. They will continue to add features that others seem to be addressing with niche products.

    The problem is that if I spend $400 a month on CoStar, $70-100 on LoopNet, $100 on other monthly membership subscriptions/dues, and another $50-60 on association/society/organization dues, I’m really not all that interested in anything else that is asking me for more. Maybe I just feel like after spending $600-700/month on technology I should have everything I need.

    Bottom line is that your list is great, and what all these companies are trying to do is noble, but at the end of the day there are a lot of companies out there with mediocre offerings
    that address one tiny niche. The result: a highly fragmented market where the companies that are innovating and should lead have a difficult time of getting the traction they need to. And I’m not arguing that CoStar or LoopNet should be those companies….

    I’ve shared your posts with our commercial agents here in Augusta and the response has always been awesome – we’re the second largest city in Georgia, yet sometimes we seem to be in the stone ages when it comes to technological advances and implementing the best marketing strategies for our clients. You’re helping us slaughter the competition with your insightful and relevant information, thanks!
