What is Commercial Location Score?

Commercial Location Score (CLS) is a scoring system developed by Moody's Analytics to provide a quick understanding of the major factors that affect the value of a location. Each numeric score ranges from 400 to 1,000 and takes into account component factors for the location including business vitality, economic prosperity, amenity, spatial demand, transportation and safety. Learn more about Moody’s CLS.

What does property-centric mean?

“Property-centric” is a way of organizing information about real estate that makes it easy to track the sale and lease history for an individual property. Some listing services are more like bulletin boards, where new listings aren’t tied back to an underlying property.

Because Commercial Exchange is property-centric, we can track that history, and the database becomes more accurate and more useful over time.

How are the listings verified?

Every 45 days, brokers with listings on Commercial Exchange are required to verify the accuracy and timeliness of each of their listings. This process ensures that old listings don’t hang around like they do on other national listing services.

Can we embed Commercial Exchange search onto our business website?

That is a possibility, but we’d need to talk details! Contact us at: hello@commercialexchange.com.
