In this article, we’ll examine three key, value-packed features of RPR Commercial that can help commercial practitioners. Because providing them with access to accurate and comprehensive data, can make all the difference between success and missed opportunities. We’ll look at RPR Commercial as a whole, but put a spotlight on Site Selection, Trade Area data and the comprehensive list of RPR’s commercial data partners.

RPR Commercial Site Selection

You can really set yourself apart from other commercial agents by utilizing the analytic tools that RPR Commercial provides.

When you’re able to sit down and show clients how much spending potential is in one particular area over another, or calculate ROI based on discretionary income and key demographic indicators, you’re bringing much more than a “hunch” to the table. You’re bringing data and analytical insight into the equation and it will impress your clients to no end.

RPR’s Commercial Site Selection tool is the perfect option when the question is, “Where are the right people for a business?”

This RPR feature gives commercial real estate practitioners an edge when it comes to finding ideal areas for professional or retail business sites. Here’s a summary of what it can do for you:

  • Select specific attributes from broad data categories such as economic, demographic, spending, tapestry and more.

  • With these attributes selected a user can search a large geography such as a county, and identify where these conditions exist in smaller geographies such as ZIP codes or neighborhoods.

  • This drilling down allows a user to search for properties only in these geographies with their desired attributes, ensuring that the core drivers of a client’s business are in the area, which is a time saver from looking through properties that aren’t.

Seeing these steps unfolded visually is highly recommended. Just watch this step-by-step video walkthrough. It will take what might seem like a complicated process and break it down and simplify it for you.

Trade Area data and reports

You’ve surely heard the saying: “location, location, location.” Well, it certainly applies to commercial real estate when finding a location that will support a client’s business.

Learn where customers are, and gain insight into their mindsets with RPR’s Trade Area details and consumer segmentation data from RPR (via Esri). Create customized, easy-to-understand reports that offer deep insights into the people, their lifestyles and behaviors in neighborhoods across the country.

A Trade Area Report from RPR goes beyond area demographics–it goes into the psychographics (how consumers think), which is even more crucial to determining a given area’s spending potential.

RPR’s Trade Area data provides users with the community details that help set a property apart when marketing to potential buyers and tenants, or to ensure that an owner occupier or investor is choosing an area with a community that will support their business or investment.

  • Esri
  • Precisely
  • SMR Research

These partnerships expand the reach of RPR’s database, ensuring that REALTORS® have access to the most up-to-date and comprehensive data available in the market.

Whether searching for commercial listings, researching properties or land parcels, REALTORS® can trust that RPR provides the most accurate and reliable information available thanks to the commitment and collaboration with valued partners.

RPR: a high value–no-cost way to make informed decisions

Ease of use is another key benefit of RPR Commercial.
