Share Branded PDF Reports with Your Clients

One of the many integrated features of the KARNES CPE system is the Property Traffic Analysis function. Many users may not be aware of this powerful feature.

While users are working hard to market properties, the Traffic Analysis feature provides useful insight into property traffic data for All or a specified Property by defined time frame, where/how the property was viewed and who viewed the property.

Beyond providing property traffic details, the Property Traffic Analysis function allows the creation of a PDF report that can be emailed or printed and can also be easily customized by adding company logos and headers.  Beyond personal insight, this report creates a excellent branded marketing piece to provide to clients to illustrate listing activity, or to use during organizational meetings.

Governor Pat McCrory announced today that MetLife, Inc., intends to create 2,600 jobs in Charlotte and Cary, North Carolina by the end of 2015. While the final location of the Cary office has not been decided, it appears that MetLife will lease the entirety of the 276,120-square-foot Gragg Building at the Ballantyne Corporate Center. The Gragg Building, which was completed at the end of 2012, was one of two buildings developed on speculation at the Charlotte office park during 2012. MetLife’s occupancy of this 276,120-square-foot building would have a dramatic impact on the vacancy rate in the NC-51/Southeast submarket in Charlotte. The vacancy rate in the NC-51/Southeast submarket was 20.2% at the end of 2012 and would decrease 4% points when MetLife occupies the space.
