The Future: Part 1

by | Oct 26, 2007 | How to Guides, Uncategorized

What does the future hold? People ask me this all the time and I usually say “I don’t have a crystal ball.” So, in an effort to get the crystal ball everyone is looking for I went to two very cool lectures/seminars.

Joel Burslem from InmanNews was the speaker at the first seminar: Web 2.0 and the future of real estate marketing.

Some of the Highlights:

By 2011 87% of people will be watching video online [See my first effort here]  You can also go to The Portland Report for my serious yet fun show.

People like phototours on blogs – Check out a Hawthorne condo I have listed

Joel predicts that blogs and online video will become a much more powerful tool for people buying or selling homes. I will be adding these ideas to the marketing plans for my listings. Another great idea was listing info syndicators – that’s a big word that means I put the info about a listing in one place and it then gets put in a bunch of other places [websites in this case].

Stay tuned for The Future: Part two next week – highlights from a 2008 economic forecast featuring Dr. Bill Conerly

    I agree with what you are talking about. We created a tool called realedin.com that combines social networking (like facebook) with blogging for this very reason. Give real estate professionals a better online avenue to market themselves as well as allowing people to post their homes for sale. It’s a free tool that people should take advantage of. I think it has to do with what you are talking about. I would be interested in getting your opinion about it. Our site is http://realedin.com. Check it out and let us know what you think.

    Between all the other social networks I’m in I really don’t have time for another – the site looks really clean thanks for the heads up
