    An Inside Peek at Knock, and Zillow’s Entry into Purchasing Homes

    by Drew Meyers on April 13, 2018

    Editor’s Note: Below is the Geek Estate Mastermind newsletter #18 from February (this week’s edition was #24). Prospective members often ask for a sample newsletter, so thought I’d post a past edition publicly as an example — particularly given the relevance of Knock’s model to yesterday’s Zillow announcement that they will begin purchasing homes directly.

Domain names are not valuable by themselves. They aren’t going rank in Google without great content and backlinks, both of which require either considerable time or money. It’s no secret I’m a skeptic of the value of top level domain names, just read the comments on this post about .realtor for my thoughts on the topic from several years ago. From … Read More »
