It’s About Time for Timely Commercial Data

Andrea Jarvis | Economic Development

Many companies have emerged in the last several years that offer detailed insight on historical commercial real estate (CRE) data, listing comps and market insights. While historical market data is imperative for most CRE entities, timely market insights are just as essential in making the right investment or business decision.

Would you purchase a home based solely off of market data from quarters passed? What about purchasing a car after only seeing a CarFax from three owners prior? Probably not. So why does the CRE industry continue to make decisions based on outdated, and often manually-gathered data?

Look at any major US city. In Austin, new buildings appear and old ones change almost daily. For local residents, the skyline is seemingly unrecognizable, and the streetscape continues to evolve before our eyes. The truth is, the CRE industry hasn’t exactly figured out a way to stay on top of the constant changes in near real-time – until now.

It’s time to check the expiration date on the commercial listing data you rely on to make business decisions.
