The New World of Buying and Selling real Estate-- Wed., March 15 -- MIT Enterprise Forum

Forget Tradition!

The New World of Buying and Selling Real Estate 

March 15, 2006 



"Seattle has become a hotbed for online real estate startups," said John Cook, business reporter for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and author of John Cook's Venture Blog.   


Transformation is afoot. Remember how Expedia revolutionized the travel industry? Now companies in our own backyard, including Redfin, HouseValues and Zillow, are offering online technologies that are transforming the real estate industry. From online valuations and lead generation to completing the legal transaction, these companies aim to exploit opportunities in the business of residential real estate. Home buyers, sellers and real estate agents are changing the way that they do business. 


If you are interested in learning more about: 

  • Three HOT Seattle technology companies,
  • The impact of disruptive technologies on residential real estate, or
  • How innovative business models can affect a traditional industry,


then this is a program that you will not want to miss. Please join us for a lively discussion on March 15th.
