Our developers are constantly hard at work building and implementing new features and capabilities with the goal of creating value for our users. Aggregating market data is just the initial step in creating a crystal clear picture of every building in Manhattan. The next step is giving our users the tools they need to get the most out of our data on an intuitive platform.

In the coming months, we will be launching increased functionality geared toward all of our users, especially toward property owners. But for now, here’s a quick rundown of all of the ways owners can use Agorafy and get the most out of its market data.

More Exposure – Lease Up Faster

For property owners, presenting their building(s) in the best light to prospective tenants or buyers is paramount. Our goal is to help owners lease up or sell available commercial and residential space as quickly as possible.

Whether it is available office, retail, or residential listings, Agorafy gives owners a powerful platform to manage the profile of their building with direct contact information, gain maximum exposure for their listings, and interact directly with brokers and potential tenants.

Our platform gives owners the ability to submit high quality photos of their building, its interior, as well as floor plans for specific listings. Along with published asking prices, owners can also include building and unit specific details and amenities.

After submitting listing and property information, owners can easily correct and verify listing information if needed and post new listings or remove spaces which have been leased. All of this information can be stored on our site for future use, eliminating redundant data entry, so owners can spend more time showing space, speaking with prospective tenants, and negotiating deals. 

Research the Market – Position Your Space Better

Property owners need to turn around vacant space as quickly as possible at the highest price the market will bear. By utilizing our open platform, owners can research comparable in the market with verified and reliable asking prices and establish the price point they are looking to achieve.

Owners can also research competing buildings and listings and gain an edge on the competition by better positioning their space. High quality pictures and floor plans along with published asking prices allow prospective tenants to have a crystal clear picture of your space prior to a walk-through. 

Agorafy recently expanded to include residential listings on our platform. Property owners and managers can now create an attractive and detailed profile of their multi-family building or new development, schedule open houses, and track customer interest for future use as units become available. 

By increasing transparency, Agorafy helps create an environment with more knowledgeable end users and better informed professionals. Property owners and real estate brokers also realize the benefit of spending less time providing pricing and listing information and can spend more time on what matters most–showing space and closing deals.

We would love to hear from you. Get in touch and let us know how we can keep improving Agorafy for you.
