In their most recent rankings of the Top State Business Climate, Site Selection magazine moved North Carolina up a spot to #2 in America. Given our low tax rate, educated workforce, ease of access to capital, strong transportation infrastructure, and quality of life, it’s no surprise that we continue to rank high as a destination for business leaders.
But if the word is clearly out about North Carolina as a business destination, why then, is it so hard to find a comprehensive commercial real estate listing service for available properties here? And why is not having one problematic?
Business leaders can all agree that relocating a business is a stressful, high-stakes endeavor. Finding the right property to match the specific needs of a business in a desired location is often an exercise in finding the proverbial needle in the haystack during the perfect storm. But the state’s economic vitality is inexorably linked to new and growing businesses choosing to relocate or stay here, so it is incumbent on us to make our available commercial real estate properties easy to find.
That is why Currituck County Economic Development has developed the most comprehensive commercial real estate listing service in the area. For property seekers and sellers alike, this new tool is a one-stop shop. Users will find dozens of commercial properties in Currituck County for sale or for lease, and it is 100% free to use.
Unlike most other CRE listing services, the new Currituck County service not only lists available properties from MLS services, but also includes other, non-MLS listings as well. Each listing has the same information you would find with MLS listings, including square footage, tax rate, building type, zoning, and price.
Property seekers using the Currituck County listing service can sort listings by the type of property (undeveloped land, office, warehouse, retail, agriculture, industrial, or flex), making it easy to find only the properties that will work for them. This time-saving feature enables them to avoid the hassle of scrolling through dozens of properties that would never match their needs. Similarly, they can sort properties for sale and for lease.
Perhaps most importantly, this new comprehensive commercial real estate listing service is absolutely free to use. Anyone can list an available property, browse current listings, or sign up for email alerts at no cost whatsoever.
Currituck County Economic Development is proud to offer this comprehensive commercial real estate listing service, and we are confident it will become a key economic development tool for northeast North Carolina. We also believe it can serve as a model for other counties and regions in North Carolina, Virginia, and beyond, providing one less barrier to business leaders choosing us for their next business relocation.
