OppSites connects city development priorities with investor preferences.


Maximize Investment

A Completely New Type of Real Estate Listing

Underexposed, and prioritized for investment

Every municipality has a large number of properties where investment is prioritized and investor risk  is reduced. We call these locations, OppSites.


OppSites are not necessarily on the market, and their value may be largely unknown to prospective investors,  developers, and even the property owners themselves.
And that’s one of the key features of OppSites:


OppSites empowers cities to designate publicly and privately owned land as opportunity sites, even if they are not for sale, and in doing so, to draw attention to sites that might otherwise go unnoticed.



OppSites has two primary users:

Municipalities and the Investment Community




Municipalities and Planning Professionals

OppSites empowers cities to designate properties where new investment is prioritized, regardless of who owns them, and whether or not they are for sale, and broadcast that information to a national audience of investors, brokers, and developers.



Investors, Developers, and Brokers
