Taranaki Property Investors' Association
A new online listing service for commercial property has been launched, featuring not-for-sale properties.
Tickle Me is part of the FindSpace website and aims to allow property investors and real estate firms to unofficially list a property that is not actually on the market, but if a good offer was made, it could.
"The idea encapsulates the idea that ‘everything is for sale, at the right price' which is never more true than with commercial property, " says FindSpace director Justin Ryan.
"We were approached by a number of property investors and real estate firms to see if there was a way to list a property ‘unofficially' that was not on the market, yet if someone put in a good offer it could be,"
Tickle Me has a user loading all the details about their property such as size and location, but hides its street address and contact details of the owner. There are no photos allowed and no Google Map options either.
If there is interest in a listed property, an e-mail can be sent to the owner and the process moves from there.
"Property Investors are always open to offers, and many Real Estate firms hold ‘off the book' listings on behalf of clients. This new option should allow a useful avenue for both to market their properties", Ryan says.
