Hey look… I wrote something. It’s a report about robots in real estate. Here’s an excerpt:
“Robots don’t have to respect fair display. They’re not obliged to rank properties in the same way an IDX vendor is required to. Robots could care less if the broker has paid for a premium status on a portal. It won’t matter if a property is featured, or sponsored, or presented at the top of the page, or the very bottom. Robots won’t visit one site; they’ll visits hundreds of sites. Robots have time to sort through all of that.”
