ZoomProspector is the largest national partnership of economic development organizations,
corporate real estate professionals, and site location experts facilitating economic development
growth and site selection analysis on the Internet.
Economic Development Organizations
Numerous economic development organizations throughout the United States
have joined forces to make the process of businesses locating in their community
faster and easier through a national site selection analysis process provided
on this website. By using ZoomProspector businesses are able to search for
available properties, find communities that match their site location requirements
and create detailed demographic, labor force and business analysis reports
which help them find the optimal location to start-up, expand or relocate.
Economic developers are assisting businesses through this one-stop-shop on the Internet because instead of
businesses having to search for information on many different economic development websites, they can search
for the data they need nationwide using ZoomProspector.
All of this information is powered using an Internet geographic information system (GIS) which provides access to
detailed spatial and geographic information through interactive maps and user-defined analytical reports.
Real Estate Professionals and Commercial Property Associations
Real estate brokers, firms, companies and associations serving commercial, retail and industrial real estate professionals have
partnered to provide data about available properties which are listed on ZoomProspector.
You can search available office, industrial, warehouse, retail, call center, flex-space, and vacant land which is for lease or for sale.
Property searches can be refined to search nationally or in a specific city, county or state.
Using the Advanced Search feature you can search for properties by property type as well as community characteristic.
Corporate Real Estate Professionals and Site
Corporate Real Estate advisors are partners in ZoomProspector because they are both users of
the website and you can find them to assist you with your site location analysis needs using the website.
By clicking on the Find Site Selection Expert link you can find experienced site
selection consultants and corporate real estate advisors that can assist your company with your site location project.
The website allows you to find an expert by specialty, industry expertise, name and location of their business.
Corporate real estate practitioners also use ZoomProspector to help them with their site selection analysis projects to find the
ideal location for their business clients that are considering an expansion or relocation. A May 2006 article in Forbes magazine
indicates that "in the past five years the dynamics of the site selection industry has changed more than in the previous 40 years
combined" and that the availability of information on the Internet has driven that change.
Where site selection consultants used to consider only a few communities for a business location and they would physically visit most
of these places, today they consider hundreds of locations and spend 80% of their time doing remote analysis including the use of the Internet.
