Itasca County Commercial Rent Study - Prepared by Sarah Carling, CEDA
In 2019, Community and Economic Development Associates (CEDA) was tasked to author a commercial rent survey for Itasca County. The main purpose of this survey is to help Itasca Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) / Small Business Development Center (SBDC) better serve property owners, prospective business renters as well as communities in filling vacant buildings located in the County.
The survey was designed to keep people who own multiple properties in mind. The survey was mailed out to 739 property owners in Itasca County. Responses received totaled 196, constituting a 26.5% responses rate. The distribution list included both owner-occupied commercial properties and commercial rental properties.
