Simon Baker, former CEO of Australian REA Group, has launched a new web site he’s calling Property Portal Watch. From his blog:

Property Portal Watch will be the one stop shop for all information on property portals around the word. It is designed to provide news, views, rumours, overviews and general information on property portal sites throughout the world. In addition it will provide tips and techniques for those wanting to advertise online. Its first incarnation is as a blog (while i get the proper site built).

Simon helped build REA Group into a truly global real estate search powerhouse that now has operations in 10 countries. It owns 22 websites, eight print publications and its web sites have over 8 million unique visitors each month.

Given that background, I’m sure there will be some great info coming out of there. For anyone who’s interested in watching the Real Estate 2.0 space – make sure you give it a visit and subscribe.
