Many managers who run REIT funds (real estate investment trusts) and other commercial real estate buyers are burdened with the task of physically visiting a potential property for purchase. While they can be excellent investments, they can overwhelm investors with the necessity to physically visit the properties they are interested in purchasing for their portfolios. How else are they going to differentiate the good investments from the bad ones? Consequently, they are often frustrated by the immense need to travel — it takes so much time away from the work of managing money. But that’s all about to change, through the introduction of the Keekstr platform. This patent-pending service connects institutional and commercial real estate investors to prospective properties, valued at $5M or more, in a manner that reduces their overall cost, time spent and gives them a ‘first look’ at remote properties they may want to purchase.
