Vancouver-based SpaceList looks to make it easier for businesses to find commercial space through their listing service. After months of expansion in the British Columbia market, SpaceList launched its commercial real estate listing platform across Canada in February. Think of it as the residential MLS equivalent for commercial real estate.
Commercial real estate listings will be aggregated in a single place, making it easier for businesses to find a new location. In the past, those looking for space had to search through dozens of different websites, each displaying different information in different formats.
In total, there are 60 million square feet of available space for rent across Canada and businesses and individuals can see more options in one place than ever before. With the support of nearly every major commercial real estate firm in Canada, SpaceList has rapidly built an inventory of over 6,000 listings, and facilitated thousands of connections between businesses, brokers and landlords. Landlords and brokers can add their listings in minutes, and as a result, hundreds of new spaces are added each week. For businesses, the simple user experience makes shopping for a new space more fun and less stressful.
“We are really excited to launch this new service for businesses, brokers and landlords across Canada,” said Bill MacEwen, CEO and founder of SpaceList. “We started with a very simple idea: that someone looking for space should be able to see all of their options without having to pay a fee. It’s an exciting time for commercial real estate, and we’re thrilled to be a part of it.”
