Sublease.com is a commercial real estate listing service that was initially founded to focus on sublease listings, but with the recent acquisition by RENTV and the complete revamping of the web site and search engine, the service now is an effective way to market DIRECT AND SUBLEASE availabilities to business owners or those looking for space. Itís ideal for marketing space that may slip under the radar of the tenant rep broker, because of the spaceís smaller size or shorter lease term length.
Through Sublease.comís web-enabled services, commercial real estate brokers, property managers and tenants can list or search for office and industrial sublease space. The companyís operating strategy addresses the need for an efficient medium to successfully market subleases and smaller direct spaces to prospective tenants directly and, to some extent, tenant rep brokers.
Sublease.com offers an extremely cost-effective means in the market for sourcing leads for availabilities that may not get the attention of tenant rep brokers; hence promoting liquidity, while reducing down time and accelerating deal flow for this sector of the commercial real estate market.
The company was founded in 2000 by professionals in the commercial real estate industry and was acquired in 2005 by RENTV.COM, INC., the company that created and operates RENTV, a leading online news and media company covering the commercial real estate industry since 1998. It is headquartered in Marina Del Rey, CA.
Our mission is to transform the way smaller commercial spaces and sublease opportunities, as well as business-related services, are marketed and found by providing the commercial real estate industry with an easy-to-use, cost-effective listing service that is free for the prospective tenant to use.
Sublease.com is now operated by the same team that has been operating RENTV since 1998.
