Zillow Instant Offers…Finally

by Drew Meyers on 4:24 pm 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.

Zillow Provides Public Records to MLS’

by Drew Meyers on 2:59 pm April 16, 2015

That’s a pretty big incentive to get MLS’ onboard, depending on what the data rights are that go along with using the data.

I can’t imagine their data providers are letting them distribute data for free to every MLS … Read More »

by Sam DeBord on 3:30 pm February 22, 2015

Simplicity - Broker Public Portal

There has been a lot written about the possibility of a national Broker Public Portal for real estate–probably too much, for a project that’s nowhere near being off the ground yet.  Still, the idea rallies the spirits of many brokers, so it has legs. The hurdles in front of the project are massive, and they shouldn’t be ignored.  They should become the focus of the project.  Its success will not be driven by trying to overcome them, but finding a way around them. A member-led … Read More »
