Commercial real estate trade journals are one of the most effective ways to receive the most current industry information, stay on top of market trends, and keep tabs on your competitors.

While general business news and social media offer a wealth of resources and opportunities to connect, they lack the hyper-targeted content focus that trade publications have for commercial real estate topics.

At the same time, you can tap into a captive audience of potential clients and partners through advertising and written submissions to help drive brand awareness and high quality prospects for your business.

To help you get started, we’ve gathered a list of the top commercial real estate trade journals that all CRE professionals should read or include in their commercial real estate advertising budget.
