LocationOne is new online locator for Missouri properties.
Commercial properties for sale or rent in Ozark now have a larger audience, thanks to a new Missouri Department of Economic Development program called LocationOne. “LocationOne is a one-stop Internet information center available for commercial and industrial buildings and sites across the state of Missouri,” DED marketing specialist Carla Mason said. “The Web site is maintained in partnership with communities across the state and is designed to address the specific site-selection data requirements of their customers.”
The program puts commercial properties into one database – along with 17 other states that are also involved – for anybody in the world to see.
“The chamber’s role is to put the program in front of developers, commercial property owners and real estate agencies that specialize in commercial properties with the goal to find more new businesses to locate in Ozark,” said Ozark Chamber of Commerce president Sue Larimer.
Main Street Program Director Robert Snook said the service is also available to people who might want to promote commercial space they already have.
“If you have property, you can use a password to enter and update your own information,” Snook said.
Mason said project managers in the DED office in Jefferson City go first to LocationOne.
“If the property’s not on LocationOne, they’re likely not to see it unless there’s someone in the community that they know to ask,” Mason said. “It’s important to get as many of our properties on LocationOne as possible. This is a tremendous opportunity for anyone with real estate to sell or a property owner or manager trying to find reliable candidates to fill a space.”
The site lists all assets and statistics regarding Ozark. It was developed by a company in Kansas City that came up with the marketing idea to list commercial sites in one location.
