CBA's Research Staff gathers information on all available office, industrial and retail space in buildings that meet our research standards in eight Washington and Oregon counties. CBA's custom designed website is continuously updated by members as well as CBA's Research staff.  Our user-friendly program is fully optimized across all technological platforms.  Features of the website include listing searches (both map and criteria based), marketing tools, and numerous report options.  

CBAcma, our Commercial Market Analysis product, is another tool available to CBA members - consisting of researched commercial property sales over $250,000 in eight Washington and Oregon counties.  

In keeping with the ever-changing legalities of the industry, CBA also provides a Forms Library for our members' use.  These forms have been carefully prepared by the Association's legal counsel and are the commercial industry standard.

CBA also provides education and networking opportunities for the commercial brokerage community, giving members access to clock hour classes to fulfill their licensing requirement, as well as forums to meet and make deals with their fellow brokers.

Lease-commission Process 

 

The lease-commission process can be complicated. As a member-owned association, one of our fundamental missions is to ensure member cooperation and fair compensation. To achieve this, it’s vital that all members follow the proper listing entry process to avoid misunderstandings      about commissions.

 

ALWAYS PROPERLY DETAIL THE LEASE OFFICE COMMISSION ON YOUR CBA              LEASE LISTING 

In “GENERAL LISTING INFORMATION,” in the box titled “Leasing Ofc Com*,” the listing broker must enter the amount the procuring broker will receive. It is essential that both sides of the deal publish and understand the correct information. Make sure you always confirm and clarify information as we are not always able to protect your commission.  

 

LISTING BROKER: 

FILL OUT THE COMMISSION INFORMATION FOR YOUR LISTING AS FULLY    AS POSSIBLE. When filling out your commission information, the comment box only allows for 60 characters. Include as much information as possible in the entry field. For example: 

*To review Rule X.1.a regarding Division of Commissions, click here.

 

  1. CLARIFY YOUR TERMS. If your lease commission terms exceed the limits of the commission information field, please use the CBA Member Listing Comments to include full details about the commission.

 

BOTH COOPERATING BROKERS 

COMMUNICATE CLEARLY ABOUT YOUR COMMISSIONS WELL BEFORE THE CLOSE OF            THE DEALRemember that you should always follow up with your cooperating broker to confirm your commission information before the deal is signed and executed. It’s important to understand and agree upon what you are getting paid! 

 

 

Keep Your Listing Status Up To Date

 

 

To maintain an accurate database that helps our members be more productive and successful, it is vital that members do their part to keep the status of their listings up to date. 

FIRST: Make Sure You Enter the Correct Listing Status

Active: An active status is an On-Market status and should be used when a valid listing exists and no offer (with or without contingencies) has been accepted. 

Pending: A pending status means the seller or lessor has accepted an offer from a buyer or lessee, but the deal hasn't closed yet. CBA members must change the status of a property to pending the minute a contract is executed.  

THEN: Keep Your Listings Up to Date

Once you've submitted your listings, you also must keep those listings up to date. This means promptly removing listings that are no longer active and updating a listing's status as soon as that status changes.

Members also must warrant that their listings and any changes to their listings accurately reflect the original listings and any changes to the listings.

Please visit our Member Rules page if you need additional information.

 

Use Your CBA Flex Pass By December 31st

 

Fall is here, and that means CBA has more classes available to its members. If you haven’t maxed-out your CBA flex pass, now's the time! Make sure you put your pass to good use and sign up for up to four live classes by December 31, 2019. Choose from any of our class offerings that match your interests and career goals – and earn continuing education credits for your biennial license renewal.

 

Announcing Our New Quick Search Feature!

 

We listened to your feedback and developed a Quick Search feature to make your listings searches faster and easier than ever before.

 

When you’re on the CBA homepage, simply click the orange “Quick Search” button to enter a streamlined search that lets you filter by asset class, property name, market area, CBA ID, and address. Using the quick search function reduces load time for quicker results.

Start a search but need to use the full functionality instead? Just click the “Advanced” button in the top right corner, and you can continue your search with our full data features set. 

 

CBA Member Listings Now Receive National Exposure!

 

One of many benefits you receive as a CBA member is national exposure through our partnership with Commercial Exchange (CE), a national commercial real estate marketplace. Commercial Exchange brings together sale and lease availabilities sourced directly from brokers in Catylist’s network of 50+ local commercial real estate platforms in markets across the country.

 

When you post a listing to the CBA database, your listing is automatically added to CE, at no extra charge. This information, just like on the CBA website, is always verified and up to date.

 

What does this mean for you? If someone in another state or country is looking for a property with criteria that matches yours, they’ll see your listing and can easily access your contact information. And if your client wants to look at properties elsewhere in the nation, you can find up-to-date, verified listings that meet their needs, as well.

 

To visit the CE database, click here.

 

 

Revised Forms 17 and 17C Released July 1st, 2019

 

In response to recent Washington State legislation, CBA has released revised versions of Form 17 and Form 17C. Please note that there were NO changes to Form 17 Commercial.

 

The Seller Disclosure Statement for Improved Property (Form 17) and for Unimproved Property (Form 17C) has been updated to reflect upcoming revisions to the Seller Disclosure Act (RCW 64.06).
