Shawn’s Most Use CRE Web-Links

Over the years I have put together my toolbox of useful web-links that I have shared with many of my students at The University of Memphis.  You can copy the list or simply go the following link on my web-site anytime to get these links and new ones that will be added over time.  I hope that you find them useful in your CRE endeavors!

Here are some of my favorite Web-Links

See link below to the FDIC website which will allow you to search deposits at a bank in a market, submarket, zip, etc.

The benefits are twofold:

  1. You can see the market share of the banks, and
  2.  You can see the deposit trends from year to year to show the health of a particular bank.

They say 1) rapid access to businesses and experts 2) improved digital branding 3) wants/haves and corresponding invitations to network 4) member viewpoints and forums 5) CRE news aggregated from around the globe 6) industry-focused search to avoid clutter.  I say #1 worldwide commercial real estate network?
