The 2 Billion Dollar Trulia

July 28, 2014 Trulia, Zillow 14 Comments

2 billions dollars for Trulia and it looks like the deal is going through.  Think about 2 billion dollars.  Why is Trulia worth so much?

Hey guys and gals, if you’ve got some of those people who are in that in-between place, you know that 3 to 5 years after a bankruptcy or short sale and you get get them into a home, check out the Mortgage Alternative Program.  These guys will make sure your client can afford the home they want, and then buy it for them!  Yep on an extended escrow that can last up to 6 years.  Then when they’re ready, you can do their purchase loan to take them out.  Oh, and the real estate agent get’s their commission on the sale!  To learn more CLICK HERE.

Trulia 2 billionNow on to the show.  Really don’t want to get into it too deep here, would rather you just watch the show, but the question today for us is to really try and comprehend why Trulia is worth $2 billion.  What is it about them that’s made Zillow who’s clearly bigger want them in their fold.  Let me tell you…. it’s your clients that’s why it’s worth so much.  Well if your clients are worth so much to Zillow and Trulia, how much are they worth to you?  And if you feel like they’re worth a lot to you, how do you make sure that they know it?

Tune in and let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

Have a great week!

Zillow to Buy Trulia

July 25, 2014 Big Banks, MLS, Zillow 44 Comments

Holy cow!  Zillow looking to buy Trulia?  Yeah and that’s not all…

Don’t forget!  If you’ve got people in that 3 to 5 year waiting period after a foreclosure of a bankruptcy, there’s a Mortgage Alternative Program that could be just the thing for you.  It’s truly one of the best programs we’ve seen since the recovery from the crash.  If you want more information just CLICK HERE.

Zillow TruliaLike the post title says, it looks like Zillow is eying to buy Trulia.  Wow, think about that monster.  Imagine the control this new listing portal will have in the real estate industry.  They’re going to have the entire real estate industry by the tail, the world will be their oyster, they’re going to be on top of the world… you get it.  We’re not sure what to think of it really.  Maybe it’s going to be a drag, or maybe it”s going to be awesome.  The one thing we fear is that Zillow will start selling real estate.  “Why go through an agent?  Just list with us because that’s where you buyer is going to find your house anyway!”  There’s their new slogan.  You’re welcome for that Zillow.  Anyway it’s a big step in the evolution of making real estate listings available to the public and we’d love your thoughts on it so leave us your comments down below.

With that you all have a wonderful weekend!

CFPB Accused of Enforce Now and Regulating Later Approch

July 24, 2014 CFPB, MLS 28 Comments

iron fistNow on to the show.  We’ve got a couple things today.  First did you know that the CFPB has officially turned 4 years old?  Yep, and according the what was laid out in Dodd Frank, they haven’t even come close to rolling out the regulations that were laid out to enforce.  Well over the past 4 years they’ve pretty much had the “enforce now, regulate later” approach to getting things done and industry pro’s have had about enough.  Also in today’s show we see the continued decline of the MLS system out there with less than half of all properties sold last hitting the MLS’s.  That’s kind of scary and we wonder what they’re going to do about it.

Well you all have a wonderful day and we’ll catch you tomorrow!
