    Zillow Instant Offers…Finally

    by Drew Meyers on May 22, 2017

    It’s no secret inventory is a problem in many real estate markets across the country (my own backyard, Seattle, certainly falls in that list). That begs the question, how do you open up more inventory for purchase? I’ve long been a fan of the Make Me Move, and the prospect of connecting buyers and seller directly. I know virtually every home is available to buy, for the right price. I was always a fan of what Bryan was working on with Everyhome. Remzy (current Geek … Read More »

An Outside Industry Perspective on Chatbots

Posted on by Drew Meyers

If you’re an agent or broker, chances are good you probably won’t find much value in watching the following video. However, if you’re a founder, executive, consultant, or technology vendor in this industry, you should. The video is an interview with Paul English, the founder of Lola (and a co-founder of Kayak & Director at Partners in Health, an organization I greatly admire), at the Phocuswright conference. Lola is a personalized travel assistant, by way of a simple messaging interface. While Lola is absolutely developing an … Read More »

Placester and Free Websites for all Realtors

Posted on by Drew Meyers

I wrote about Placester in 2014. At the time, they were charging Realtors $5 a month to compete with Zillow’s $10 a month websites. Now, if you’re a Realtor, you can get a FREE website from Placester. The news came out a week ago, so it’s not really news anymore. Greg beat me to saying this. Websites really are a race to the bottom. There are three categories of websites: Template (less than $100, or free) Semi-custom (between a few hundred and a few thousand dollars) Full … Read More »

Walt Mossberg’s Last Column – The Disappearing Computer

Posted on by Drew Meyers

Walt Mossberg is probably the most famous tech columnist to ever put pen to paper, or, more accurately, words to a screen. I have to admit, I’m not a religious follower of his writing. The first time I ever heard of Walt was in 2006, when he wrote a piece on the launch of Zillow (where I worked at the time). Back then, I had no idea what it meant for a startup to get a column by Walt Mossberg on launch day. 11 years later, … Read More »

Blockstack and Real Estate

Posted on by Drew Meyers

It’s not secret real estate is one of the first adopters of many technologies. For the early adopters, there’s a new technology you should start thinking about. The Blockstack: Blockstack is a new decentralized internet where users own their data and apps run locally. A browser portal is all that’s needed to get started. Many tech founders reading here probably already read AVC, which is where I heard about it. The fact that Union Square Ventures invested in Blockstack is a pretty good indicator they … Read More »
