Online PR News – 13-June-2011 – – TCAR (TCAR), the Triangle Commercial Association of REALTORS®, announces today the integration of its commercial real estate exchange portal, Tacquire, into the websites of two Triangle economic development agencies. Raleigh Economic Development (www.raleigh4you.com) and Wake County Economic Development (www.raleigh-wake.org) now provide website visitors with real-time property and lease data.

“In communicating with business owners that are considering relocation to the area, one of the first things they want to know is what space is available for lease or purchase,” says Jennifer Bosser, assistant executive director for Wake County Economic Development. “With the new capabilities added through Tacquire, accurate and comprehensive listings are available at a moment’s notice.”

Tacquire tracks office, industrial, retail and specialty space available for lease across the Triangle region, as well as buildings and land being marketed for sale. The database is set up to be searchable by location, property type, price range and square footage. To ensure accuracy, Tacquire utilizes researchers to verify and update listings on an ongoing basis.

“Providing the most up-to-date property data is imperative to sustaining growth in our area,” says Kim Brennan, TCAR executive officer. “It’s an honor to have earned the trust of these agencies, and we look forward to building upon these partnerships as the area continues to grow.”

Database improvements have expanded the property listing details to give more information to prospective businesses. These include providing area maps, demographics, a birds-eye view, and a printable flyer.

The new partnerships bring added benefits to Tacquire members as well. With more than 5,215 hits per month at the Raleigh and Wake Economic Development websites, member listings receive increased exposure. This has helped open doors to increased interaction with prospective business owners.
