Something big coming in online real estate?

I am hearing weird noises in the online real estate atmosphere. They are on a frequency few can register, and still fewer will acknowledge.
A big deal is coming.
The outlines must remain blurry at this point. But here are a few things to ponder:

  • The NAR EXPO is a week away.
  • The RPR (formerly and variously referred to as the  “Gateway,” “The Real Estate Channel,” and the “Library/Archive”) has been a long time coming.
  • The NAR seems to be scheduling tons of meetings next week for briefings.
  • It has been a year since the NAR inked a deal with Move to build this product. I have heard nothing about how that’s going, which, in my opinion, is a curious thing.
  • There are only a handful of ways to get something like this to market.
  • There are even fewer ways to get the data needed to power something like this.

Like I said, murmurs. Signifying nothing perhaps. But I am not feeling that.
We’re past due for some movement in the category.
Stay tuned.
