    Why I’m Bullish on Redfin

    by Drew Meyers on October 23, 2017

    I’ve written about Redfin before, most recently regarding their IPO and the IDX SEO issue. (disclosure: I own a small number of shares). I spent some time looking at their S-1, looking at their current product, and thinking through their future. They face a hard road strife with many competitors to fend off (with more to come) — but I’m bullish. Teams are certainly the future of real estate. Zillow knows that (see here), and Redfin knows that. Redfin happens to operate as the largest “team” in the country. In … Read More »

iBuyers, iSellers & A Product/Business Idea

Posted on by Drew Meyers

It’s no secret there is a consumer shift to faster transactions — on both the buy side and the sell side. Zillow Instant Offers (prior coverage here) and Redfin Now (prior coverage here) are both sell side initiatives I’m bullish on. FlyHomes is offering guaranteed closings on the buy side (see here). What’s the next iteration on the seller side? Here’s a product — or business — idea, which I alluded to in my “why haven’t you started a real estate startup” post a couple weeks ago. … Read More »

CityBldr Raises $2.9 Million of a $3.4 million Round

Posted on by Drew Meyers

You may have seen the news last week that CityBldr “has raised $2.9 million of a $3.4 million round” (via GeekWire). CityBldr “brokers” land. If you think about both helping individual home owners realize the potential value to be had by selling to developers (with their neighbors) as well as better optimizing commercial properties — that’s a very, very large opportunity requiring some specific technical/AI expertise, which CityBldr has (and continuing to invest in). With the new funding, they are going to expand into California and hire more … Read More »

Social Media & Ripping Apart the Fabric of Society

Posted on by Drew Meyers

I’m a huge fan of Chamath Palihapitiya & his drum of working on hard problems (see here). He says what everyone is thinking, but are too scared to say publicly. Here’s a recent talk at the Stanford Business School that generated press that Facebook has been forced to respond to: Go to minute 21:30 for this thoughts on what Facebook has become and how social media is ripping apart the fabric of how society works. Experiencing the real physical world is what living is all about. It’s … Read More »
