    Carfax For Listings? Revaluate Launches in Beta

    by Michael Price on September 16, 2014

    Another RE Tech start-up has moved from stealth to beta recently. Revaluate is hedging a bet that prospective home buyers are hungry for data that exists outside standard MLS descriptions on the homes they are considering. From the about page at Revaluate.Com. “Most real estate sites will tell you the stuff about a home you already know. But what don’t they tell you? What are the sounds, smells and sights? The construction projects, violations and nagging problems? Meet REVALUATE.” Revaluate makes the comparison of their service to a … Read More »

Buy and Sell a Home, without an Agent — with allre

Posted on by Drew Meyers

allre

allre is the latest to try to help home owners buy and sell. Of course, OpenDoor is another recent entrant in the “buy and sell homes online” camp. Allre recently presented at TechCrunch Disrupt: Sell or Buy a House Online for Free on Allre My Thoughts I am in full agreement there are people who desire to sell their home directly and save on the commissions. In fact, there are a LOT of those people (6% is a lot). I’m in full agreement there are … Read More »

NAR: Stop helping Zillow and hurting Realtors!

Posted on by Bryn Kaufman

Realtors, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: Are you getting multiple years of sold listings in your IDX feed? I believe the answer to that question is no, because I have never found an IDX feed that had multiple years of sales history included. NAR’s IDX and VOW rules make it difficult for 99% of the Realtor’s websites out there to show sold listings. This is a huge advantage for Zillow. They show sales history going back over 25 years, and consumers love to … Read More »

Meet the Real Estate Tech Entrepreneur: Jay Sherer

JaySherer

In our latest real estate tech interview, I’m talking to Jay Sherer, Founder of HelloAgent. Without further adieu, here’s a bit more from his own mouth… What do you do? It depends entirely on who you ask. If you ask my boss (our founder), I’m a growth hacker. If you ask my wife, I’m on my computer all day (and sometimes late into the night) using social media. If you ask my cat, I’m just someone she can wake up at 5am. Really, though, I utilize … Read More »

Lightbulbs, your Business and your Life

Is that post title cryptic enough for you? What do lightbulbs have to do with real estate? Well, it’s not about LEDs or CFLs, it’s about priorities. Confused? Hopefully I can shed light on the subject. As real estate agents and brokers, we have no shortage of people offering advice to us. Marketing companies harvest our email addresses from our MLS and send us all kinds of “surefire” ways to increase our business. Real estate “coaches” encourage us to prospect more. Market more. Blog more. List more. Sell … Read More »
