Website creates industrial property listings in Albuquerque
ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE) – A group of companies is trying to make it easier for companies moving here or wanting to expand. They created a real estate website with virtual tours of properties and points of interest nearby.
Housing shortages and bidding wars keep Albuquerque’s housing market competitive
Albuquerque Economic Development announced the launch of a new database mapping available commercial space and real estate to help grow business and attract investment in the city. AED says ABQSites.com is a GIS-based resource that combines robust location, demographics, business, and economic data to serve as the primary resource for business recruitment, expansion, and retention.
“Over time, the need for the best, fastest, and real-time data is absolutely critical,” said Danielle Casey, president and CEO of Albuquerque Economic Development. “It really is a wonderful interface to list and advertise properties in our region, to observe what is going on with these properties and to be able to market them appropriately.”
Project ECHO starts on Wednesday in Nob Hill
ABQSites.com is a new interactive real estate database that combines available space in Albuquerque and nearby cities like Rio Rancho and Los Lunas, highlighting the benefits of each – from location to demographics, to restaurants and parks nearby. The website is also optimized for mobile devices so those on the go can search for property, take a virtual tour, or check it out in person.
AED, a non-profit, says that by putting all of the information together in one free, easy place, it eliminates the time-consuming process of searching for real estate. They hope it will attract companies from out of state and industries like film or manufacturing, and even help local businesses meet or relocate their needs.
“Who are suppliers for this industry, what else is going on in film and media production that can happen here on site that has not yet happened,” said Casey. “They can go in here and quickly enter the parameters. If you’re looking for 1,500 square feet of retail space, you can list everything we show what’s available. “
The site is based on a program called ZoomProspector. AED hopes it will eventually help other parts of New Mexico.
New campaign aims to boost trips to Albuquerque
“Maybe they pick three locations that they like, run the data, and based on the parameters that matter to my business, they can determine that this is the better location for me. Maybe I don’t want to be next to a competitor or maybe there is another complementary business I want to be next door to, ”said Casey. “The ability to react very quickly, time is also money when companies are looking.”
AED says, along with local communities, property owners and brokers can also use the website’s database to advertise available properties in the area while also promoting unique assets and local GIS information such as opportunity zones, zone levels, or quality of life facilities such as bike paths or public parks.
According to AED, the new website couples listings and layers with additional proprietary data sources. Below are some of the features:
- DEMOGRAPHIC ANALYSIS: Visitors can research labor force, population, education level and even employee types by distance or radius from a selected object or even a pin on the map and export the information into finished reports.
- ANNUAL REPORTS: The business database can help identify industry clusters and potential customers, competitors and suppliers. An excellent resource for retail locations too!
- COMMUNITY PROFILES: Community-specific data sets are available for all jurisdictions within the metropolitan area and provide information on transport resources, consumer spending and identify quality of life amenities such as housing costs.
AED also put together a webinar on the website on Wednesday. You plan to upload a recorded version in the near future.
