Active Rain is a socializing Real Estate Network of REALTORS®,
agents, mortgage brokers, home stagers and Real Estate technology vendors
that are blogging there way through the portals of the world. It is a
convergence of ideas and information about all processes of the real estate
transaction and the way that technology is changing our world on how we shop
for a home, REALTOR®, Mortgage Broker and other services. And it does
not stop there, not only will you find 13,000 members that have joined and
blog regularly about their business, you will find tips, information and local
information on much of the country.
This community is based out of Seattle, WA
and is only 7 months old,
thank you creators of active rain, for giving us an active site for our voices
to be heard, it is also for you! With all the new real estate tech companies
trying to make a buck this one is addressing the needs of the consumer,
(I do not like that word) which is all of us! Watch for their new site
, in its beta form now, it will capture more local information
from active rain and tell you about different professionals and communities
you would like to research.
Which brings me to this, PlanoHomesandLand.com is a local site and
blog about real estate listings and community guide
to help you around
the area. It specially focuses on West Plano,TX, zip codes 75093,75024 & 75025.
There are listing drill downs by neighborhood so you can just click and see what
is on the market in a particular area, like Willow Bend
. Also, the real estate tool
page is constantly updated with the latest advances in real estate technology,
and it is coming fast. Everything will help buyers and sellers and REALTORS®
become more efficient. This site also has drill downs (active listings by
neighborhood) for other Dallas areas such as Uptown, Park Cities, Preston Holllow,
Frisco to name a few. You do not have to input your search, just go to your
neighborhood and "click"
and all active listings with photos, detail will appear.
There is another site that we participate in which I love and this is
, get the org, it is not for profit,
it has just been birthed so it
is in its beta form, but it is pure blog strictly about local communities and their
nuances, from all over the country, check it out. Just a reminder beta has glitches...
great creators of this site also, the soldiers of transparency
in the real estate
community. This transparency, which I call truthfulness
, is about how the real
estate process works now and how technology is changing the playing field by
bringing more information to all of us directly. My House Key will truly be
about community and local information for you that is hard to find now. All great
marketing tools for selling or buying a home that we use.
Real Estate is always local
....and you can get the big overall picture from main
, (which is a big opinion anyway) but get the real stories
sources and check back often because there are more and more stories everyday!
What you get here is first hand knowledge from professionals that are actually in
the trenches everyday actually doing real estate and services for a living, so
you are getting current information right from the source.
And you might find a friend or two!
