What types of listings can I find on CMLS?
CannaMLS is a digital marketplace for listing cannabis licenses, businesses, and green zoned real estate. Most people use our platform to attract buyers or investors to their cannabis assets and opportunities. We have listings ranging from newly-issued paper licenses to fully-operational, vertically-integrated cannabis enterprises. We also have listings for non-licensed real estate assets, including prime storefront retail locations and expansive warehouses suitable for various cannabis activities. Our Quality Assurance (QA) team works hard to make sure every post meets our strict guidelines, but please contact us if you have concerns about a specific post.
How can CannaMLS help me?
Our site was created to help the cannabis industry thrive! There are many ways we can help you achieve your goals, from selling your asset to helping you find a new location for your existing operation. Visit the About Us page for a full description of how we help buyers and sellers find their place in the cannabis industry.
What are the rules for listing on your site?
We want to create a platform that is relevant, respectful and resourceful for all who use it. That is why we have created a set of rigorous listing guidelines to ensure that everyone understands which types of posts are allowed and which will be removed. Please carefully review these guidelines prior to listing and let us know if you have any questions!
How can I get started using CannaMLS?
CannaMLS is free to use for everyone! As a seller or agent, the easiest way to get started is to add a listing and wait for the leads to come in. We always recommend creating an account first, which will allow you to edit your posts and receive listing notifications. If you’re a buyer, you can browse our thousands of listings or fill out a buyer form if you want help identifying specific assets, including pocket listings not published on the public site. If you ever have any questions about how to use the site, contact us and one of our representatives will walk you through it!
How do I get more eyes on my listing?
CannaMLS receives nearly 30,000 unique visits per month and we have a couple ways to help your listing attract more views from these potential leads –
- The first is to purchase a featured listing spot, which costs $300 per month and guarantees your listing is on the home page for 30 days at a time. Feel free to contact us for stats about the increase in views for featured listings vs. regular listings.
- The second is to engage a CannaMLS Power Broker to represent your asset on a contracted basis. Power Brokers are experienced, licensed agents who have a network of qualified buyers to share your listing with. Contact us today if you are interested in speaking with a Power Broker about your asset(s)!
How do I remove a listing?
You can only edit and delete listings if you first create an account. Simply log in, select “My Listings” at the top, click “Edit” on the listing you wish to delete, scroll to the bottom and click “Need this listing deleted?” and confirm, then your listing will be automatically removed from the site. If you posted a listing as a guest and need it deleted, just contact us with a link to the listing and we will remove it for you. Just make sure you create an account next time. ;)
What should I do if I contact a listing and it’s no longer available?
We work really hard to provide a free service that is useful for buyers, but sometimes sellers forget to remove listings that are no longer on the market. If you contact a listing and they tell you the asset is no longer available, please contact us with the Listing ID or Listing URL and we will reach out to the seller before removing it from the site. We appreciate your help!
What states does CannaMLS have listings in?
Our platform currently has listings from 19 different states and counting! With an average of 35 new listings added weekly, our site inventory is growing rapidly and we are so excited to see assets posted from new and emerging markets. 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 ~35 new listings a week, it would be nearly 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, broker or investor from CannaMLS or any other site. If you are interested in engaging a consultant 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 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 take stock or seller-carry 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
