Real estate rebels plan Boston Realty Party to document slowdown, plot reforms

EXCERPT from our blog post: http://bit.ly/BosRealtyParty

Want inside information on the Boston Realty Party we’re exploring / planning to discuss where housing prices are headed in 2014? Please email realestatecafe@gmail.com if you’d like to collaborate on data analysis, content creation, or simply participate in roundtable discussions on price trends and industry reforms. We’re toying with some mock awards — maybe even bobble head dolls — for bidding wars and deceptive business practices.

We’re eager to hear from fellow real estate rebels: fee-for-service real estate consultants, exclusive buyer agents, and DIY homebuyers who love to crunch numbers (or have post-bidding war trauma syndrome from the first half of 2013 and watch to regulate blind bidding wars in the future).

If you think real estate is the sleeping giant of the consumer movement, and would like to brainstorm how tech-savvy homebuyers and sellers would organize the real estate marketplace if the MLS (multiple listing service) did not exist, we’d love to hear from you!

Thanks for your comment. Check out the image in the blog post below, and let us if you'd like to participate in a visioning exercise this week at MIT or at a family friendly location in Arlington:

BLOG POST: 12/17/13

What would Geico do: REthink Council vs reThink Commissions?

EXCERPT

Radical reThink = Consumer Savings

Want to participate in a visioning exercise to create an new eco-system, like the brainstorming board shown in the photo above? We need Millennials and other motivated innovators to create momentum for our “reVRM-Minifesto” in 2014 by asking:

“What would real estate look like if there were no MLS?” and

“What if homebuyers and sellers managed their own data?

$30B annually in Consumer Savings vs $60B net worth?
