Summary: In addition to commercial real estate (CRE) property listings, LoopNet has become a useful research source for closed property sales transactions in hundreds of US counties and cities, with over 1 million transactions on file now - including 50,000 in the last 180 days.

Although CRE brokers may already be aware of this resource, the corporate executives and advisors we serve may also find the service to be useful for their own market research about industrial and office properties and buildings, such as when planning for expansion or relocation projects.  It may also be of interest to economic development professionals, such as for benchmarking and planning.
