    Real estate Danger Report

    Is There D.A.N.G.E.R. In The Future Of Real Estate?

    by Michael Price on June 5, 2015

    It’s been well over 20 years now since then NAR president Bill Chee warned everyone of the “Lion Coming Over The Hill”. “Non-Industry competitors” and Microsoft were viewed as a clear and present danger. NAR leadership created RIN (the Realtor Information Network)  Shortly after it was decided that NAR would attack the lion with a Wolff, Stuart Wolff of Homestore, Inc. The Realtor.Com deal was consummated and the race for digital domination was on. Isn’t hindsight wonderful? Even Mister Magoo can see it with clarity. Recently NAR commissioned a … Read More »

Cost Per Click, by Geography?

Posted on by Drew Meyers

For those doing search engine marketing, I’m curious — what are you paying for targeted traffic to your website? Please leave a rough ballpark dollar amount in the comments, along with the geographic area you do business in.

Skyrise – Community for Commercial Spaces

Posted on by Drew Meyers

I came across Skyrise today via a comment on AVC. You all know I’m a community guy (see Horizon). It appears Skyrise will enable (they are not live yet) community for commercial spaces. I definitely agree there is a compelling opportunity to help those who work in the same building meet, network, and do more business together. I’ve spoken to several entrepreneurs over the past couple years who were thinking about making an attempt at solving this. Co-Working spaces like Impact HUB Seattle already put a big emphasis on … Read More »

Earlier today, Benedict Evans wrote on the topic of Search, Discovery, and Marketing. Particularly if you are a broker or franchises who thinks constantly about syndication & marketing your firm’s listings, you should read it. I wanted to pull this quote out: where do you want to be hard to find?

Posted on by Drew Meyers

Congrats to the Avenue team for winning the $25,000 prize for Realogy’s FWD startup pitch competition (via Inman). Avenue delivers “Professional Advice from Local Real Estate Experts”.

Posted on by Drew Meyers

MetaProp NYC, an accelerator in New York City, is now open for business.

They have a strong group of strategic partners out of the gate — Zillow Group, Warburg Realty, DLA Piper, EisnerAmper and News Funnel. 8 teams will get accepted, and receive the following benefits: A $25,000 equity investment from MetaProp NYC for 6% of common stock plus an … Read More »
