Why Not To Convert The Garage When Remodeling Your Home

One of the biggest reasons that people buy homes instead of continuing to rent is to have more space. But the cost of buying with little money down or to move up to a better neighborhood could mean a compromise on space.

Realtors See Their Donated Dollars in Brick & Mortar

I was joined by Matt Curtis, Rebecca Brooks, Carrie Hill, Madison Hildebrand, Audie Chamberlain, Jeri Moran, Shaun Rawls, and Giveback Homes Founder, Blake Andrews.

Redfin: A Discount Brokerage 10 Years Later

Any entrepreneur interested in trying to reduce or cut out agent commissions should read this article about Redfin on the SeattleTimes. Redfin has had eight rounds of venture funding since 2005 totaling $167.8 million, according to Crunchbase. Redfin after 10 years still has less than a 3 percent market share on its home turf. To say it’s been a marathon for Redfin, is an understatement. Entrepreneurs: you should also read this post, and every one of the comments.

NAR – Stop wasting hundreds of millions of our money!

NAR, start asking your members what they want before jumping headfirst into huge expensive projects. Take a survey, see what members actually need and want. After all, you are in business to support your members. RPR is an example of this. According to Inman, NAR has spent $106 million on RPR since 2009. RPR was supposed to be earning enough revenue to break even as of 3 years ago, but I believe revenue to date is under $1,000,000, so not even close. It was obvious RPR … Read More »

Being Shut Off from External APIs: Blessing or Curse?

As a startup, you often have no choice but to build on external APIs or platforms. In real estate, you’re almost always reliant on IDX/MLS data. Or WordPress. Or Drupal. Or Facebook. Or Twitter. Etc. There are, of course, massive advantages to building on top of other systems. But, doing so makes you dependent on a partner who you have zero control over who can change their mind/policies at any moment. If you’re building, or thinking about building, on top of any external platform, I wrote … Read More »

The Swanepoel T3 Tech Guide – Software Edition

It’s perplexing how often real estate industry questions are referred to social media for answers.  Some of the most basic questions of brokerage model, pay structure, technology tools, and marketing systems lack a unified research database where brokers and agents can begin their searches on an objective playing field. In lieu of a go-to guide, we use personal references, anecdotes, and one-line Facebook comments and hope that the general consensus is the right answer for our businesses. That’s the gaping hole that the T3 Tech Guide is hoping … Read More »
