Head on over to True Gotham to check out this week’s Carnival of Real Estate.  I’m honored that my contribution on the Internet and Realtor Disintermediation was listed.  Thanks!

Lots of juicy content to sink into on this Monday…

  • BlueRoof talks about co-opetition in this business, where agents often compete with each other for a listing, but regardless of who gets it, they must cooperate on getting that listing sold.
  • Mike “Gatecrasher” Simonsen of Altos Research checks out the O’Reilly Media conference and notes that real estate advertising in the online and offline world are very similar:  in both media, there are ways promote yourself that a) take a lot of time and little money — “sphere of influence” offline and blogging online –and b) take a lot of money but not much time — “newspaper ads” offline and “pay-per-click” online.
  • Daniel Rothamel at The Real Estate Zebra continues with his analogies between being a referee and an agent.  His goal in transactions is to handle everything smoothly. A well-handled transaction that goes smoothly for all parties involved is something that may not garner a whole lot of talk, but it is always noticed and remembered.

The other entries are also definitely worth checking out; I haven’t had time to thoroughly digest them yet, but when I do, I’ll make some comments.

True Gotham, thanks for all the hard work!
