I've been looking at real estate... because we might move somewhere (where??)...

... but I'm dismayed by how bad the architecture is. Zillow and Trulia send me things from a particular city I've shown interest in, but every single thing is badly designed and much of it is atrocious. Even if I found one house that suited my taste — and all I want is something clean and simple — I'm afraid I'd have to look out on ugliness. It's really discouraging! Why haven't people figured out how to design a house? I know, what I'm seeing is what people have figured out. So then, my problem...

Pricing Models and Negotiating Tips for Brokers & Vendors in Real Estate

Pricing is never easy. Especially as a vendor approaching the real estate industry. Having done this a few times for various levels of the industry (and as a buyer from the broker side), either at Trulia, RealScout or now at LocalLogic, it’s always a fun conversation to dig into the complexity of pricing within the real estate space. I don’t know what interest is out there for this topic, but as a sales leader in the real estate industry for over 17 years, I wish someone told me this stuff long...

How Trulia began paying down its technical debt

As every software company knows, over time as code ages and workarounds build on work-arounds, the code base becomes bloated. It becomes ever more difficult to get around the technical debt that you’ve built up over time. It’s really impossible to avoid this phenomenon, but at some point, companies realize that the debt is so great that it’s limiting their ability to build new functionality. That’s precisely what Trulia faced in 2017 when it began a process of paying down that debt and modernizi...

PropTech: A Massive Opportunity We’re Seeing

[Note from Editor: Originally published on NFX] Real estate touches everything we do. It’s the economics of the physical space — it literally shapes our lives by defining the environment in which we live and do business. Tech has done a lot in the last few decades to revolutionize flows of information (Google), communication (Facebook, Apple), goods (Amazon), capital (PayPal, Venmo), and transport (Lyft, Uber). But real estate is larger than all of those categories combined, and the transformati...

Slicing Pie in the Quest for New Real Estate Category Kings / A Few Questions about Buyer Data in NYC — Geek Estate Mastermind 47

Last week, I investigated category kings further. On the residential side of real estate, the unwavering category king is Zillow Group. In addition to their flagship brand, they own Trulia, StreetEasy, and even power Yahoo! Real Estate. Realtor.com is a distant second, with no legitimate player anywhere in sight beyond that. The portal landscape seemingly has played itself out — no one has made a real play in the last 5+ years. Blame Zillow’s ginormous traffic advantage, data moat (Zestimates, A...

Older homeowners resist downsizing, Trulia report says

A new report from Trulia says households headed by seniors are delaying downsizing. That’s in part because seniors are working longer, so they don’t feel as pressed to dramatically reduce expenses, and because more seniors are housing their adult children compared with a decade ago. Downsizing rates for seniors had held fairly steady between 2005 and 2016, said Alexandra Lee, housing data analyst for Trulia. In 2016, 5.5 percent of all households headed by owners 65 and over moved, with the down...

Greg Fischer Intro // KW’s Flawed Consumer Play — Geek Estate Mastermind Newsletter #45

Last week, I talked about the Keller Williams new consumer play: purchasing Smarter Agent. I’ve long been a skeptic of agent branded/template apps, for two main reasons: User acquisition costs are too high. Zero unique functionality meaning zero reason for a buyer to download / use them. I still have yet to hear a good response. The core question remains: what is differentiated about “agent branded” apps? The only answer I’ve ever heard? Nothing. A 2008 strategy in 2108. I don’t get it. KW ne...
