You pretty much hit the hotspots for this, other than to directly contact a few commercial brokers to see if they have a pocket listing.

My MLS has a commercial search too. I'm also a member of LoopNet.
Michael Setunsky has the list!
cimls is my choice
Panama City, FL
Contact a commercial broker specializing in retail!
Looks like you have many good answers already...
Retain the services of a commercial agent.
We have a separate commercial MLS but our NWMLS also covers some commercial.

I don't know, I deal only in residential. Sorry I can't help.
Not many good commercial MLS. Loopnet.com is good.
Michael J. Perry
Loop.net is the best way to go ... the only way I know unless you know someone with a pocket listing.
MLS has a business opportunitied section. Bizben.com
In fact, you can search FSBO type in yogurt shop near N SD and get lots of leads.
Craigslist is popular.
I spent about 10 sec and found 20 stores for sale in North SD....
I would research some local commercial brokers. There are some commecial listings but they may be leases not purchase. Ron and Alexandra Seigel have good ideas
I have used LoopNet and it works pretty well.
Our mls handles some commercial listings, but it seems most commercial agents prefer not to list in the mls. You can check commercial brokers websites and you'll probably find more listings. http://www.cbre.us/o/washingtondc/Pages/washington-dc-commercial-real-estate.aspx
Loopnet.com. The best way is to know who the brokers are. If it is listed, it is agenerally a coupon clipper return. It is the unlisted ones that are the gems, and for that you need to work with someone that did what we did, research, network, etc. A
Loopnet is one, our MLS has some but if you are treading in the area of commercial you might be best to get in touch with a commercial agent as often the good properties and deals are made outside of the systems.
I think that Loopnet is a piece of crap, that shoots itself and it's customers by trying to double dip.
Best to just contact the commercial agents in the area where you are looking.
Loopnet would be my choice for commercial.
My MLS has a commercial section. Not sure how involved it is though. Love the fro-yo, best luck!
cimls.com works for me - have you tried contacting an agent for that area?
The others have answered.
Loopnet and Costar
I'm not a commercial agent but loopnet seems to be favored in our area. Good luck.
I use LoopNet & list on the MLS.
I have discovered that RPR(REALTOR Property Resource) has commercial properties listed and it's a lot cheaper than Loopnet.
You've named them, John.
I only know about Loopnet and Xceligent. My previous broker paid the fees for their agents.
there are number of options but the problem is most commercial brokers do not list the best ones
Commercial agents have access to their own type of MLS is what I learned. You can make a deal to go through one of them for a fee or Sandicore which I have used. Many ways to skin the Real Estate cat
I haven't a clue in general, but here in Carolina mls we can do some minimal search but it in no way tells the entire story of what's out there.
Ours has several sections just like residential only it's industrial, commercial, business, etc.
Our MLS handles commercial properties but only some brokerages use it for commercial properties.
