  • Matthew Ferrara just left an interesting comment about Realtor.com Home Values…

    …that reminded me of this video from the previous head of REALTOR.com: [Ferrara’s comment] “…Instead of just copying everyone else, maybe REALTOR.COM (and by extension, NAR) could make some decisions based upon market realities. And the reality is that Zillow (and other similar tools) are really inaccurate because the “conditions” on the ground are always […]

  • 4realz Roundtable: The Value of Home Values

    I’ve got something special planned for this week’s 4realz Roundtable. In honor of Realtor.com’s release of the home valuation tool, we’re going to cover the value of online home values! Join us on Thursday at 4pm (PST) to take part in the conversation! Of course, the discussion is what makes the 4realz Roundtable work, and […]

  • 4realz Exclusive: Realtor.com unleashes the Zillow killer and you…

    …didn’t even notice: Introducing: Realtor.com Home Values Apparently, Realtor.com launched their answer to Zillow recently without much fanfare! The first thing to note is that the new tool mixes estimates for home values along side listings from the Realtor.com database. This would have been unthinkable just a few years ago, but even with an announcement […]

  • Been crazy for a few days getting ready for…

    …in Realty Quest. Here are some of the things I wanted to talk about this week, but haven’t had the chance: 4RealzEd is coming to Pasadena on May 30! The buzz from the first two events has been wonderful and I’m already seeing people sign up without any real marketing on our part! I love […]

  • Is Zillow worth $225M?

    It’s a great question… I thought I’d dive into this question a bit so I started writing a killer-post! My thought was to put together a fascinating post that described likely revenue opportunities at both Zillow and Trulia and I was even going to go so far as to estimate the value of Trulia… However, […]

  • In hiring another eBay exec as CTO, is Move looking to become…

    … a mini-eBay? We know that eBay Real Estate has largely failed to win over public interest beyond the occasional newsworthy listing (like when a town comes up for auction!), so I think it is an interesting question to ask what an eBay team might do differently this time assuming they had Move’s focus and […]

  • The 1st 4RealzEd event was yesterday and…

    I think I’ve recovered enough now to actually post about it! 🙂 Despite our best efforts to be prepared, the day started off a bit rough with a nearby mudslide taking out power in our building in the morning (meaning no hot coffee and no projector) and a 9-car pileup on a nearby freeway slowed […]

  • Forbes reports that some investors are calling for some major executive

    changes at Move: A group of funds controlled by David Nierenberg have called for the termination of Move Inc.‘s chief executive and chief financial officer after the company said its investment in auction-rate securities is no longer liquid.

  • Notorious ROB picks up on some great…

    …insights from Move’s latest earnings conference call. (And I couldn’t agree more with Joe that “Notorious appears destined for blogger notoriety.“)

  • The worst part about the mapping patents…

    …that won’t go away is that I have to believe that people (at least at ESRI), were doing this stuff long before the patent was filed  (i.e. databasing and retrieving listings from a map!).
