No. 1: Researched Listing Data – Commercial Gateway compiles a dynamic database of commercial properties for sale and for lease. Logging in provides members with access to more listing data. After you have logged into CommGate.com, you will have access to all member property listings as well as other researched properties updated by our local, in-house staff. Office and industrial properties are updated daily to produce comprehensive quarterly statistics. Statistics for individual properties and aggregated data are also available through the members-only reporting tools. Customize searches geographically or by type to produce an array of reports featuring detailed office and industrial absorption, and vacancy and rental rates, among other statistics.
No. 2: Flyers and Email Broadcasts – Commercial Gateway offers a free email broadcast system along with a newly added Fast Flyer graphics program. The email broadcast system allows Commercial Gateway members to “blast” an email flyer for a property to a targeted group of brokers and agents. The emails are distributed to commercial agents according to their area of specialization, marked in the My Profile section of the website. The new Fast Flyer feature lets you quickly create a customized, professional marketing flyer of your property and attach it to both your listing and the broadcast.
No. 3: Market Activity Alerts – Commercial Gateway allows you to create personalized alerts, or “Hot Sheets,” to notify you when new listings are added to the site. Members can create custom hot-sheet alerts based on geographical boundaries along with numerous other property type or usage parameters including withdrawn listings. Create a search tailored to your client’s needs, and CommGate will send you an email in the morning or evening regarding properties based on your criteria that have come on the market during the last day.
No. 4: Sales Comps – Commercial Gateway provides confirmed comparable sales information, including many sales prices and deed copies at no extra cost. Members may access five confirmed sales for each confirmed sale price provided by them or their firm. CommGate currently has more than 4,500 researched sales transactions and over 1,700 confirmed sales prices in and around the Houston metro area. The Grantor/Grantee search allows you to retrieve public records such as Warranty Deeds and Deeds of Trust for Harris, Fort Bend, Montgomery, Galveston and Brazoria counties.
