How to Advertise Your Offices for Lease Online

Office Space For Lease OnlineIf you have a strip mall or office building with a lot of space left for lease, you may want to try advertising your property online. Doing so could draw in a whole new set of potential lessees or buyers for your property. There are a number of ways to advertise commercial real estate online, so you may just need to explore your options. Here are a few opportunities worth exploring.


Craigslist is a free classifieds site online that is extremely popular in America. This may not work well for any foreign property you own, but it would certainly work well for anything you want to lease out in the Detroit Metro. To advertise your property on Craigslist, go to the city nearest to the property and select “post to classifieds” in the upper lefthand section. Then proceed through the steps to list the real estate in the “office / commercial” area. Make sure you include contact information on the ad, and use the link you get in an email to comply with the terms of use. Then your ad will be live online.

Your Website

If you have a website for your business, that would be a great place to list your current leasing opportunities. Set up a section of the site for available commercial property as well as commercial property you currently have leased. This will let people see what they can lease right now and what they might be able to lease in the future. Include all vital information about the property on your website, including the square footage, zoning requirements, address, etc. People will start to contact you from there.

Newspaper Ads

Your local newspaper may offer advertisements online. These will cost money, but they can give you another option for getting people to lease your property. If you want to advertise in the paper, ask if that ad will also show up online. Some newspaper services provide both options for the same price.

Social Networks

Don’t forget to post information about your commercial property on social networks, like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Include pictures of the property and a link to the ad on your site so people can see more information. If you already have a strong social media presence, this will be an easy way for you to build interest for your leasing options.
