I remember splitting wood when I was a kid – putting the wedge in the center of the log, tapping it in and then *wham*! splitting it open with the sledgehammer. That’s what Google did this morning when they announced their new and improved real estate search and uploading part of Google Base. (via CRT)
I’ve been wrong before, but this is another step towards the obsolescence of the MLS as we know it. Those Realtors whose dependence on the MLS to make them successful had best start honing those skills and tidying up those resumés.
Google are more innovative, more focused and more able to adapt.
From a post I made a few months ago:
What if – Google bought Zillow? Just a thought.
Mark it down.
