The National Association of REALTORS® Commercial Services Accreditation is designed to assist our Association to develop commercial services and recruit and retain commercial members in our market. First pioneered in 2008, the program works in collaboration with NAR's commercial boards and structures. To earn this accreditation, the Space Coast Association of REALTORS® achieved the twenty required benchmarks, to earn the One Star Commercial Services Accreditation Award.
What is Commercial Real Estate?
According to the National Association of REALTOR® website, "Commercial Real Estate is everywhere: your local coffee shop, industrial park, downtown main street, and even the office where you work." It often refers to real estate transactions that intend to generate a profit for the parties involved, be it through rental income, capital gain, or through improvement to flip. In Florida, no additional license requirements exist for a REALTOR® interested in commercial real estate transactions, although many continuing education courses exist to aid in this form of specialization.
