Resources for Students

Introduction to Corporate Real Estate (CRE)

Corporate real estate is the real property used by a company for its own operational purposes. It provides corporations with a productive environment to house employees, manufacture and distribute products and provide services to the market. Corporate real estate touches all classes of property, land, and buildings such as office facilities, data centers, manufacturing facilities, logistic centers, corporate headquarters, distribution facilities, retail stores, and hotels.

The real estate portfolio needs to align with and support the core business of the enterprise. Corporations need to have the right space, in the right place, at the right time, with enough space to meet business demand. Real estate assets, whether acquired by lease or purchase, are long-term investments that are not easily modified or liquidated. However, business forecasts that drive real estate decisions and strategy often are not accurate beyond a 12 or 18 month time frame. The business needs of the corporation can, and do, change very quickly.

This is an exciting time to become a corporate real estate professional. Use CoreNet Global's targeted resources to prepare for a rewarding career.
