What's best aggressive way to get builders attention about developable commercial property for sale?

Hello fellow Loopsters. Friends, do you folks know of a good way to contact attention from builders or developers? I have tried several avenues, but not much success... hoping to hear of a web site or such in order to make progress.

Marsha....Look close to home for your answer.
Place a huge sign on the property!
Provide details of the status of entitlements for the property to all candidates.
Provide details of the market benefits surrounding the property to all candidates.
Provide the price being asked.
Contact all the associations of builders in your area.
Contact all builders that you can identify that have or are currently building in your area.
Be prepared for offers that will take many months to close, based on the entitlement process.
Stay positive about the property, as it may take a major turnaround in the economy to really get aggressive building going again.
Aggressive building in your area is the best way to get a builders attention, not especially aggressive contact information.
Good luck and onward and upward!

Hi Marsha, if your property is in a high-demand / high-traffic / high-visibility location which everyone wants to build on... then a simple sign on the property could probably could do the trick. If it does not fit all of the above, I would advise you to discuss your options with a commercial real estate agent / broker. The agents business is to sell real estate, they do it day-in-day-out, so unless you are already an active investor / developer / agent / broker I would advise you to seek out help. They will help you position your property in a favorable light, many times taking on the marketing expenses upfront without a dime out of your pocket. Of course in return, they would ask for your business. I hope this helps.
