Website puts Baldwin County commercial property on display nationwide

ROBERTSDALE, Alabama -- A new website unveiled Tuesday will allow investors and developers from around the country who are looking for new locations for businesses and factories to check properties and communities in Baldwin County.

 

The Baldwin County Economic Development Alliance is sponsoring the site baldwin.zoomprospector.com. On Tuesday, the EDA held a meeting with about 40 real estate agents and local officials to discuss the new site, Robert Ingram, EDA director, said.

 

"It’s an excellent system for finding locations and for posting locations that are available," Ingram said. "It’s just incredible the information that you can pull out of this system."

The system is operated by GIS Planning of San Francisco. The site is free for use by developers looking for locations, real estate companies wanting to post property, and the general public, said Stevie Field, GIS Planning account executive.

 

Developers can use the site to look for Baldwin County commercial property in several ways, she said.

 

Companies could check information on a specific community, such as property values, schools, education levels, demographics and access to roads, rail availability and other services.

People looking for a building of a specific size and price can also search listings that will include map locations and photos, she said.

 

The website also will show Baldwin County properties to companies conducting nationwide searches for specific types of sites, she said.

 

The site will help communities let developers know about the commercial opportunities available in Baldwin, said Jeff Rouzie, Foley director of economic development.

"This tool will be a great asset in assisting the city of Foley to help market our existing commercial inventory as well as the recruitment of new business for both retail and manufacturing," he said. "It should also aid developers looking for demographics and available land, giving them a quick snapshot of the area that normally would take hours to research."

 

The site also will be beneficial for real estate companies looking to show off business property, said Tina Adcock, a Realtor with Peebles & Cameron.

"I think this will be a wonderful marketing tool, and I am sure that it will provide my listings more exposure to out-of-town investors," she said.

 

Anyone wanting more information on the site or the Economic Development Alliance can also go to the EDA website at www.baldwineda.com.
