    Hacker News…for Real Estate?

    by Drew Meyers on August 17, 2014

    One of the guest contributors or I write about some of the topics and news specific to real estate industry. For those topics, of course you can discuss them in the comments. But we don’t write about everything, and we never will. That said, wouldn’t it be cool if there was a way to discuss things just amongst this specific community of tech savvy professionals? Any community member could submit a link they find interesting, along with a short comment — and have a discussion thread ensue. I know all the coders … Read More »

Trusted Real Estate Referrals by Location

Posted on by Drew Meyers

online_community-300x225

Referrals are pretty much the best lead you can get, since someone is introducing you to a potential client with their stamp of approval/trust. Whether or not you make money from referrals (I know some refuse to monetize that process), virtually every agent desires to find a trusted, qualified agent by location to hand a relocation client off to every now and then. There are dozens, and likely hundreds, of networks, groups, and masterminds in existence to help agents do exactly that, all over the country…and world. Some of those are standalone … Read More »

Apparently Redfin folks agree with me; Matterport is the real deal. They just released their 3D tours today… Which major brokerage is next in line?

Everdwell

Posted on by Drew Meyers

Everdwell launched, and got featured on TechCrunch. A few thoughts: 1. The problem isn’t that amazing tools don’t exist. The problem is most agents and brokers aren’t willing to spend what it costs for a great product. The high end of the San Francisco is not a good test case to see if this is a viable offering that can scale across the whole country. 2. The most amazing website on the planet, is completely useless if no one sees it. How is Everdwell going to help their … Read More »

Posted on by Sam DeBord

Price Per Square Foot

Price per square foot is a number that boils down dozens of unique factors in a house or condo and attempts to bundle them into … Read More »
