New York City, May 22, 2007 – PropertyShark.com, the premier real estate data site, today announced the addition of a ‘For Lease’ listings area on the website. The ‘For Lease’ area of PropertyShark.com launched in the five boroughs of New York City and will be added for other major cities in the coming months. Posting a listing will be complimentary for commercial brokers and owners interested in leasing retail or office space.
“PropertyShark.com has become a thriving information exchange for all things real estate, and our users in the commercial broker segment have long asked for a For Lease area of the site, so this is a very natural addition to PropertyShark.com” said Matthew Haines, Founder of PropertyShark.com.
To browse current listings in the new ‘For Lease’ section go to: For Lease
For business owners, demographic maps showing median income, median age, population age, and rezoning initiatives will display alongside the listings to help with leasing decisions. Users will also be able to use the Notes and Favorite Property Lists features to track and organize potential office and retail spaces.
“We have great respect for the businesses that CoStar and LoopNet have built, and we don’t intend to try to compete in their space for major lease listings in skyscrapers, but we do see a huge opportunity to aggregate the small and mid-sized commercial leases available in the market”, said Ryan Slack, chief executive officer of PropertyShark.com.
To provide more insight into the leasing market, PropertyShark.com has simultaneously launched a map displaying retail leasing rates along commercial corridors in Brooklyn, based on data provided by leading realty services firm Massey Knakal. To view the map, go to: Map
“The data shown in our Brooklyn retail corridor map is compiled from data provided by our territory experts”, said Timothy D. King, Senior Partner of Massey Knakal Realty Services of Brooklyn. “We have compiled this data over the past several years and have noticed a steady increase in rents in the established retail corridors as well as the emergence of new, vibrant neighborhood districts.”
