A huge part of my job at both Trulia and the National Association of REALTORS® was focused on measuring sentiment among the RE.net. I define the RE.net as the aggregate of online voices from professionals in the real estate industry. I use several homegrown listening tools to track the RE.net and will be sharing them here with the long overdue public relaunch of realtynex.us. Be sure to subscribe via RSS or email. There’s more to come.
Custom Google Search
Since 2005, I’ve been monitoring the RE.net. My real estate blogroll was featured in Investor’s Business Daily in 2006. My REMBEX search engine elevated me to be listed by Inman News as one of the 50 most influential online real professionals in 2007. Over the years, I found that a focused list of sites to index resulted in a higher frequency to noise ratio in searching the RE.net. The current search (located in the top right corner of this site) selectively indexes key real estate and related websites to give the best possible results.
Real Estate Headlines
Inspired by sites like Alltop and Techmeme, the realtynex.us home page is a categorized and linkable list of the most recent headlines from all the sites that the search engine is indexing, and the posts I find most interesting.
And the other stuff
There’s more to come, but I want it to look a little more polished before I show you. Stay tuned!
