The American culture is heavily reliant upon the internet to provide us with information. If we have a question, we are quick to turn to our cell phones or computers to deliver the answer.
The search for real estate is no exception. According to a report by the National Association of Realtors, as many as 51% of buyers found the home they ultimately purchased through an internet search. This statistic demonstrates the power of having an online presence when marketing your real estate properties.
Looking specifically at commercial real estate, tenants or buyers wanting to rent or buy retail, office or industrial space often take to the internet to begin their search. And why not? You can do this from the comfort of your home or office and view details of hundreds, if not thousands of different properties with the click of a button.
We recognized this very real need for people to quickly and easily search Central Pennsylvania for commercial real estate. As a result, we are excited to announce the launch of Omni Realty Group’s property search feature. While there are many available websites and platforms that allow for commercial property search, we’d like to explain a little more about what makes ours unique and advantageous to you, the tenant or buyer.
How Do I Search for Commercial Real Estate in Central Pennsylvania?
This is a question we hear often. “How do I search for commercial real estate in Central Pennsylvania?” Many businesses looking for commercial office, retail or industrial space will begin with a Google search. While this will yield many results, it can be difficult to sort the results by your property “wish list.” The top search results have the strongest SEO, but may not have the features you desire.
When using the Omni Realty Group commercial property search to look for commercial real estate, you are able to use a variety of filters to fully customize your search results to yield properties that most closely match what you’re looking for. Filters such as: Lease or Purchase; Use (e.g. Retail, Office, Industrial) and Size (SF) will help you save time scrolling through results that aren’t relevant to what you need. In addition, the “draw” feature allows you to create geographical boundaries so that search results are located only within the areas you wish to consider.
Most importantly, the Omni Search feature allows you to view all the properties that are available in the market not just those your agent wants you to see. Omni is committed to securing the most effective space at the most favorable terms for our clients.
