Online Communities: Novelty or Necessity?

Guest Perspective from the Inman Community

Congratulations to both ActiveRain and RealTown that have reached that magical six-figure membership number of 100,000 people.

Add to these two frontrunners the re-engineered Inman News that now includes an online real estate community (where we are having this discussion right now) and the rapid expansion of the real estate side of LinkedIn and the evidence supports that social networking and community have officially taken hold of real estate. They are here to stay and are on the short list of major contributors to shape the residential real estate industry.
