What will happen in 2006

Perspective: Inman News real estate predictions

Each year, the Inman News team puts together a list of predictions for the coming year in real estate. Here are 10 things we think will happen in 2006:

1. Google’s new Base service, which enables people to upload content to the Web – similar to a self-serve classifieds listings service – will be a big hit and completely rearrange the online listings and lead generation landscape for real estate, marketing and media companies.

2. A cooler housing market will shake tens of thousands of real estate agents out of the business.
