PublicAssets today launched a suite of data and services that help regional planning agencies, local governments, and public entites achieve a broad range of short, medium, and long term objectives. Councils of Government (COGs) and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) are in leadership positions to develop and fund strategies that drive regional growth, transit-oriented development, affordable housing, and resilience in an ever-changing world. The most effective way to finance these investments is to better-sweat or recycle unneeded real estate assets. Yet most public entities don’t know what they own and 70% of public officials say that their biggest challenge in marketing assets for lease, sale, or PPP (re)development is getting enough offers.
PublicAssets' suite of data and services addresses these issues by helping local governments and public entities develop asset inventories and achieve better outcomes in real estate markets with the following offerings:
- Public Asset Inventories & Real-Time Valuation
- Regional Microsites to Promote Surplus Public Real Estate Listings
- Listings Promotion to Major Real Estate Sites
- Real Estate Transaction Services
Skip Rudolf, CEO of PublicAssets stated, 'Metropolitan regions across the U.S. face ever-increasing challenges that can best be addressed by COGs and MPOs. Most public entites are challenged to get offers for their surplus real estate assets and PPP (re)development opportunities. Our suite of data and services is the only offering designed to help governments understand what they own and to get better oucomes in real estate markets.'
