Loren’s Top 5 Speculations on Who is Creating the Next –

Social Network for Real Estate.

Dustin over at 4realz says:

….early marketing material suggest that one of their big selling points is that they are going to start with tons of users because they?ve bought a list from another real estate site (presumably with tons of users).   This has me scratching my head on a number of levels.

So who is going to build a site with users built in.

Number 5 – Alf is Back and he is bringing his friendsAlf

Number 4 – New Century Mortgage is now becoming a Lead Generating Social Network

Number 3 – Rupert Murdoch is Starting MyRealEstateSpace.com
My Real Estate Space

Number 2 – Dustin is Starting the New Social Network after buying the customer list from Move Inc.

And the Number 1 Speculation is….

REALOGY Realogy Brands

They don’t need to buy the list to build the initial membership. THEY OWN THE LIST!

One suggestion to whomever is starting it up should give each and every person the opportunity to have their membership deleted if they don’t want to participate.

    Sweet 80’s reference!
    I can just picture Alf’s social network – Kit from Nightrider, Sonny Crockett, Blanche from the Golden Girls…..

    Funny stuff…Realogy…really that?s a great speculation; I see how that could be a real possibility considering their size and recent venture with Scripps on the frontdoor.com project.
