5 years ago, when I started working in the real estate space, I found the landscape overwhelming. It was part of the reason I started FOREM in 2006. The blog was a way for me to jot down my thoughts and try and make sense of all the companies, vendors and technologies that were making a splash in this vertical.
A few years later, Marc and Brian took the Real Estate 2.0 mantle and ran with it. They created a mind map to account for all the new companies in online real estate.
Introducing the 1000watt Index. We’re calling it the comprehensive guide to real estate technology.
We’ve compiled over 350 links to companies in more than 30 categories that span everything from MLS software to iPhone apps to WordPress plugins.
The Index is for you. It’s to help you find vendors, competitors, partners and/or just plain old cool stuff. The page is completely customizable; meaning you can rearrange any of the blocks in any order you like.
Think of it as a 30,000 foot view of all things geeky in real estate.
Over time, we anticipate adding many more categories and links to the Index. But it’ll depend on your submissions as well. It’s free to list on the Index and we have a fairly straightforward vetting process; existing companies should have an established presence in real estate or as a startup, they should have an interesting new twist or fresh take on the space. It’s that simple.
Finally, we’d love to hear your thoughts on how we can make the Index more usable and friendly for you. Drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts, comments or critiques. We’d love to hear them.
