CPIX.net to Provide Commercial Property Search Engine to the St. Clair Economic Development Alliance

Grand Blanc, Michigan, August 9, 2016.  The Commercial Board of REALTORS® – Michigan (CBOR) is pleased to announce that the St. Clair Economic Development Alliance (EDA) has chosen CPIX.net, Michigan’s Commercial Property Information Exchange, as the commercial property search engine for the EDA’s website, www.edascc.com.

CBOR, with 650+ members, provides Michigan’s commercial real estate practitioners with industry-related professional services and benefits.  One of CBOR’s greatest member benefits is www.CPIX.net, the statewide commercial property information exchange (CIE).  CPIX, similar to a local MLS, is a commercial marketing platform that averages over 17,000+ commercial properties available for sale or lease throughout Michigan.   Additionally, integrated building data coupled with thirteen years of property history, allows professionals the ability to analyze local market statistical trends.  CPIX is governed and operated by the CBOR Board of Directors, and offers a state, national, and international public interface.

CPIX provides many options for Economic Development ranging from free links to CPIX to paid options including “EDCLink”, “SiteFinder” and regional data exports.  The EDA is using “EDCLink” which allows a display of St. Clair County properties only, updated in real time, every time a CPIX member makes a change to his/her data.  The search engine is framed into the EDA website and includes mapping, reports, email and more.  CPIX has many built-in data integrity controls to ensure that the data is accurate.  Time stamps removing information that hasn’t been verified for 45 days as well as required data fields allows the site selector to focus on relocating businesses rather than trying to obtain and update local availabilities.

The EDA joins the following economic development groups in Michigan that are using CPIX for site selection:  The Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), Oakland County, Southwest Michigan First, City of Battle Creek, Marshall Area Economic Development Alliance, Ann Arbor SPARK, LEAP (Lansing, Eaton, and Clinton counties), Detroit Regional Chamber, Detroit Region Aerotropolis, City of Auburn Hills, City of Fenton, and the City of Novi.

CPIX.net is available to the public allowing anyone to search and market their commercial properties for free to CPIX members.  Membership upgrades are available to real estate licensees, appraisers, and economic development professionals.
