how to find market price for commercial property?

I'd like to comparison shop online, so I could list my property at a reasonable rate. It seems like I have to pay over $200 to get access. How to get it for free?

The law of TINSTAFeL. There Is No Such Thing As a Free Lunch. Consult a real estate professional or join to get accurate information. All of the free sites are just that - free useless information. good luck..... Not trying to be mean, just helpful.

your county tax assessors office should have a portal that allows to to click on a property and find the most recent sales. enter 5 addresses of comparable property. look for the sales over 24 to 36 months.

It's best not to sign with a female name or to advertise your gender. People assume you are clueless and will try to take advantage of you.
If you are in a state that has sale prices online you can indeed find out some sales. Interestingly, commercial site such as zillow may give reasonable approximations. Just average more prices than one if you can.

You can get an idea by using the free sites. LoopNet allows you to enter parameters for property searches. Try to utilize similar type properties, similar in size, construction, age, location, and use. I worked at an assessor's office for many years, and currently work for a property tax consulting firm. We have been successful in determining property value using both MLS's and free sites.

Consult with competent real estate experts in that specialize and/or have the ability to analyze market data. Don't use on-line information, free or paid, as it is usually not accurate. Using an expert is well worth the fee paid for their services, and typically will get you more money and value for your property. Tax Assessor information is helpful, yet not accurate as far as market valuation and is not recommended. Good luck!
