If you’re wondering who the players are in online real estate today, you’ve just been given a new tool. 1000WattConsulting has put up a visual aid showcasing the top players in the RE2.0 space, complete with categories and links.
Real Estate 2.0 is like Web1.0 for the rest of the world because the real estate industry as a whole, didn’t really embrace the internet until about 13 minutes ago. And most Realtors and brokers are still confused about how the whole thing works. Understand, most real estate in America is still sold by agents who got the job because they either knew the seller or were referred to them. There are over 50,000 real estate agents who blog now, but there are over 2 million real estate agents. That’s less than 2.5% of the agents that are blogging. I read somewhere that 12% of agents have websites now, but most are crappy template sites (same website, different agent photo).
So this isn’t just a visual showcase of the Real Estate 2.0 companies, it’s a showcase of the innovators and pioneers in an industry that has long needed them.
PS- Thanks for the nod…
