Travel Agent is to Kayak as Real Estate Agent is to X

This is very cool.

2 Web Sites Push Further Into Services Real Estate Agents Offer
(Damon Darlin, New York Times)

Two real estate Web sites are starting to offer services that could change the way real estate is bought and sold online.

One site, Zillow.com, which will be introduced today, will help consumers obtain more accurate real estate sales information — to the consternation of some real estate agents.

A smaller site, Redfin.com, introduced an unusual new service last week that might be even more disruptive to the real estate industry: the feature automates the process of bidding on a house online.

(via Memeorandum)

I think Zillow is overvaluing our home by a little bit though (based on conversations we have had recently with an agent about the current slowdown in the market). I would of course be very pleased if that was not true. :-)

The other site (RedFin) is starting out in the Seattle area, so maybe we’ll check it out some too.
