OppSites is an entirely new type of Real Estate Listing, connecting city priorities with investor preferences.
Cities identify sites where new investment is desired, and broadcast that information to investors.
Investors, Brokers, and Developers can find underexposed real estate opportunities that may or may not be publicly listed.
Every municipality has a large number of properties they prioritize for new investment and for which they increase development capacity and reduce risk for investors. We call these locations, OppSites. Oppsite’s value is found in the delta between existing development and what can be realized.
OppSites are not necessarily on the market, and their economic potential is largely unknown to prospective investors and even to property owners, and often goes unrealized.
OppSites was formed to empower municipalities and economic and planning professionals to efficiently communicate information about these properties, and to allow real estate investors and developers to find these high value opportunities.
Much information about opportunity site potential is a matter of public record, however, it is typically distributed among departments and is ineffectively, inconsistently, and incompletely communicated. There is no single source for information about opportunity sites, their potential, or associated city incentives.
1. Municipalities and Planning Professionals lack tools and capacity to communicate priority sites and associated economic potential to a national investment community.
2. Investors and Developers lack a single source for information across multiple jurisdictions about sites that are underexposed but are prioritized for new investment.
1) OppSites empowers municipalities and professional planners to identify sites where increased economic opportunity exists, and broadcast that information to the investment community.
2) OppSites allows Investors and Developers to find investment opportunities that may not be publicly listed, and learn about local development priorities and incentives.
OppSites represents a new and entirely unaddressed area of real estate investment and development, one that targets the identification, listing, and value comparison of potentially hundreds of thousands of properties nationwide.
We focus on strategically important, commercially valuable, yet underexposed categories of municipal real estate information. OppSites are municipally and professionally designated properties, municipally owned or not, publically listed or not, that are favored by the municipality for economic development. Site designations are central to municipal planning and growth initiatives, thus strategically important to municipalities.
OppSites will accomplish the following goals for its primary users:
Cities and Municipalities
Investors, Developers, Brokers
Basic (free) Services
Premium Services (multi-tiered pricing model)
OppSites is a company working to develop municipal information web portals. Our mission is to identify strategically important, commercially valuable, yet underexposed categories of municipal data, and beneficially enhance and share that knowledge publically. Specifically, we monetize municipal knowledge while promoting openness and efficiency in government.
