'A new Web landscape' in real estate

Roadmap to Recovery: Ira Luntz Q&A

Since the onset of the Internet, for the very first time, we have a unique intersection of significantly different market dynamics, access to real estate data — both real-time and historical (thank you, U.S. Department of Justice) — and an Internet-enabled, savvy consumer. More than ever the "Web survivors" will need to focus right now on providing a Web presence that is totally consumer-centric and focused on solutions, not just data.

Thus, I predict there will be a new Web landscape on the recovery side of the downturn, hopefully with the multiple listing service organizations at the center.
