Xceligent Works with Charlotte Region Commercial Board of REALTORS® to Provide Enhanced Commercial Real Estate Information Platform

CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 06, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Xceligent, a leading provider of commercial real estate information and technology, has signed an agreement with the Charlotte Region Commercial Board of REALTORS® (CRCBR) to launch its proactively researched platform in the market. Xceligent has successfully brought its service to over 45 US markets and is launching its research product into the top 65 markets by 2018.

“We’re currently on an accelerated launch timeline to bring a viable competitor across the US for commercial real estate professionals,” said Doug Curry, CEO of Xceligent. “We’re excited to work with the CRCBR, as they have been the recognized voice of commercial real estate in Charlotte for over 20 years and Charlotte has always been a cornerstone to our plans to bring our product to the Carolinas.”

CRCBR members have been relying on a broker-loaded system for their technology and information needs, provided by Karnes, for over a decade. Xceligent acquired Karnes in January 2015 and converted the Raleigh-Durham market over to its proactive research platform later that year. Now Charlotte’s commercial professionals will have access to Xceligent’s expanded universe of property & listing information, verified sales comps, verified tenant information, lease comps, National access, and more.

“We are thrilled to have the agreement, which will offer our members a fully-researched database, that is actively researched and updated, in addition to the broker input,” said Theresa Salmen, CRCBR’s Executive Vice President. “Due to our strong membership base, combined with Xceligent’s recent acquisition of KARNES, we were able to form a partnership that continues to expand our offering to CRCBR members.”

Xceligent has already driven the entire market area, acquired a tax-base of data for the region, physically site-inspected over 36,000 properties, researched 12-months of sales transactions, and begun the tenant verification process for all office, industrial, and retail buildings over 10,000 square feet. Xceligent’s market analysts will then call every listing agent to update their listing information and gather any new listings not identified during the market drive. Xceligent’s team of market analysts will continue to contact every agent or firm on a monthly basis, utilizing custom data strategies, to maintain listing information.

Andrew Jenkins, EVP of Xceligent (and Managing Partner of KARNES) said, “The new Xceligent platform, combined with KARNES’ 25 years of analytic research in the Charlotte region, will provide area commercial real estate brokers with access to information never before seen in the Charlotte region. Our combined efforts and the continued relationship with CRCBR and its industry-leading members ensure that subscribers have access to the most comprehensive and accurate solution in the marketplace.”

Xceligent will create peer-nominated Top Producer Advisory Boards for each building type (office, industrial, and retail), who will certify each transaction in the market every quarter. These local boards will also make decisions on submarket boundaries, tracked set inventory, definitions of specific uses, and more that will allow Xceligent to provide industry-aligned market reports and analytics. Xceligent’s Advisory Boards are a key differentiator that have generated a reputation for the company of superior data quality in each of its markets.

KARNES Tri-City North Carolina Retail 2013 Year in Review

Posted on July 21, 2014 by - Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Commercial Property Exchange, Construction Update, Development, Durham, Greensboro/Winston-Salem/High Point, KARNES Perspective, KARNES Tri-City Report, Raleigh, Retail, SiteIndex, Triad CIE, Triangle, Triangle CPE, Western NC, WNC CPE

A combined total of 144.8 million square feet of retail space was located within the Tri-City area at the end of 2013. With a retail inventory totaling approximately 60.7 million square feet, the Charlotte market was the largest of the three North Carolina retail markets, accounting for 42% of the retail inventory. The Triangle market ranked second with 46 million square feet of retail space, while the Triad maintained 38 million square feet of retail space. After declining to a historical low of 541,782 square feet in 2002, retail construction increased to nearly one million square feet in the Tri-City markets during 2013. New retail supply during 2013 was most pronounced in the Triangle region, where 693,982 square feet of new space was delivered. The Charlotte region ranked second with 231,680 square feet of new retail space completed during 2013, while the Triad region reported 38,000 square feet of new retail during 2013. Only the Charlotte region reported a continued decline in new construction from the level reported in 2012. While retail construction in the Tri-City area increased during 2013, the level of new supply remained well below the 2.6 million square feet averaged annually between 2008 and 2011.
KARNES Tri-City Retail Vacancy Trends
The relatively low supply-side pressures from new construction allowed for vacancy rates to decrease in all of the Tri-City markets during 2013. At 8.0%, the Charlotte retail vacancy rate decreased 0.6% of a point during 2013 as net absorption totaling 494,986 square feet outpaced the 231,680 square feet of new supply. Despite the decrease, the Charlotte vacancy rate remained above the 6.9% reported in 2008. The Triangle retail vacancy rate decreased 0.4% of a point during 2013 as net demand totaling 849,391 square feet outpaced 693,982 square feet of new supply. The Triangle’s 2013 vacancy rate of 6.6% was the lowest of the Tri-City markets, but remained 0.1% of a point higher than the 6.5% reported in 2008. New retail supply totaling 38,000 square feet in the Triad market was outpaced by net demand totaling 386,123 square feet during 2013. As a result, the Triad retail vacancy rate decreased 0.9% of a point to 10.1% from the 11.0% reported at the end of 2012. Despite the decrease, the rate remained 0.5% of a point higher than the 9.6% reported at the end of 2010.
