Writing content is for your real estate blog is great; everyone is doing it. And if you stick with it long term, it can help pick up long-tail keywords on Google and drive more traffic to your website. What everyone is not doing (yet) is writing ...

I am Joshua Hunt. My company, TRELORA, has created the first home search site that lets buyers see the commissions being offered to their real estate agents. Now, the local MLS is trying to stop us. -- Ask Me Anything!

My company, TRELORA, is a full-service, commission-free real estate brokerage.

Our mission is to make the home buying and selling process more transparent by allowing buyers and sellers to see exactly how much money is being allocated to agent commissions on each listing. We launched www.search.trelora.com this week and, within hours, received a cease and desist letter from the local MLS, REColorado. They are stating that the commission being offered by the seller to pay the buyer’s agent is “content developed by others” and therefore should not be visible to the buyer. We believe, because a buyer’s check at the closing table actually pays for everything (including commissions), that all buyers deserve to know where their money is really going.

I would love to answer your questions about transparency in real estate transactions, broker commissions, or a commission-free brokerage model.

I’ll begin answering questions at 7 PM Eastern, and continue for about an hour!

EDIT: Thanks for all your questions, this has been a lot of fun! If you have other questions, we are easy to find and you can call the office at any time!

Gallup: Poor Americans think Gold is the best long term investment, other Americans think it's real estate

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 20:03:10 -0700

This gallup poll asks Americans "What is the best long term investment?"

That real-estate-as-top-pick view largely applies to upper-income Americans, living in households with incomes of $75,000 and over. Gallup found that 31% of those in the lower-income bracket — living on less than $30,000 — believe gold is the best investment option, followed by real estate, at 28%, and stocks, at 13%.

In between, those on incomes of $30,000 to $74,999 give gold, stocks and real estate equal billing at 26%
