Cityscope - Commercial Property Information

It caters to the needs of commercial property professionals such as agents and valuers and also a broad range of service businesses who engage with building owners, managers and tenants.

6 ways Cityscope helps your business

  1. Understand your local commercial market - If you’re a city agent, or if you sell or invest in commercial property, you need to understand stock levels, ownership details, tenants and know properties that could be about to go on the market. Cityscope offers the most comprehensive CBD property database available.
  2. Win more business – Cityscope provides access to contact information for thousands of property owners and tenants giving you access to new opportunities – be that winning new sales or lease listings or selling your property related services. Furthermore Cityscope’s detailed building information and powerful searching enable to target more focussed opportunities.
  3. Seize opportunities - See what developments are planned and under construction. Identify development sites and vacant land, or easily identify refurbishment opportunities. Determine properties owned by investors, held by owner occupiers, true beneficial owners and foreign ownership. For building and tenant services, you’ll get great insights into the types of businesses that are operating in your CBD so you can target offers and deals to them.
  4. Power your own data - Export a wide range of data to use in your own CRM databases.
  5. Identify market players – Which owners are buying? Which owners are selling? Who owns what? Which agencies are managing which properties? Cityscope records all of this information enabling you to identify opportunities and increase your market share by winning business from your competitors.
  6. Identify market trends – the depth of current and historic sales data in Cityscope enables you to see what is happening now, but also to look at trends over a long time period across property types (including strata).

Cityscope provides accurate building attributes, tenant information, detailed sales histories, researched ownership and more.
