As CannaMLS gains even more traction in the marketplace, we expect to see listings from every legal market in the U.S. and around the world.
Does CannaMLS verify the accuracy or authenticity of any listings?
No, CannaMLS is a third-party listing service and we do not guarantee the accuracy or authenticity of any posts on our site. As a free service receiving dozens of third-party listings per week, it would be impossible for us to verify the ownership, status, and/or zoning of every single listing. This is why we always tell users to do their own diligence and consult an attorney before engaging with a buyer, seller, or broker from CannaMLS or any other site. If you are interested in engaging a Power Broker to assist with due diligence and qualification of any asset, buyer or seller, please contact us directly for a referral.
What should I do if I see my asset listed on CannaMLS and it is for sale by someone else?
This is extremely rare, but it can happen. If you see an asset listed on CannaMLS that you own or are the exclusive agent for, please contact us with the Listing ID or Listing URL and a brief description of your claim. One of our Quality Assurance team members will contact you and the original author for more information and will use our standard operating procedures to determine if the post should be removed. We value all of our users and will pursue every claim diligently before making a decision.
What are some tips for improving my listing?
After 7 years of operations, we know exactly what it takes to make a listing more attractive to potential leads. Aside from filling out the listing form entirely, adding this information to the asset description will help generate more interest from serious buyers:
- What is the size of the asset (sq ft)?
- Is the facility leased or owned by the seller?
- If leased, what is the monthly lease rate and how many years are left in the lease?
- If owned, is the real estate included in the asking price?
- Is the business currently operational?
- If yes, how much revenue is generated monthly or annually?
- If no, how much revenue do you project in the first year of operations?
- Is the seller willing to extend payment terms for any portion of the asking price?
- What makes your asset unique or competitive? Examples are:
- 1 of 10 licenses issued in this city
- Includes guaranteed off-take agreement for 100% of supply produced
- Store has on-site billboard and highway signage
