Redfin sets the blogosphere on fire, along with lots of agents
The r.e. blogosphere has gone crazy over this. I'm a Redfin Partner agent myself, and I often look at the Redfin site to get property info that I can't get on the mls (yes!). I don't think this will be useful for many, many reasons. My main area of concern is this: real estate is not baseball, and statistics don't really tell potential customers much. Stats simply measure number of properties bought and sold, and as we all know, a real estate transaction isn't necessarily a unit that can be measured.
We'll see how this plays out in the coming weeks.
