Nice! Sac FITs now updated to link to Redfin instead of Realtor.

Max said...

Well, their stats suck, but will soon get better. I guess I'm out of business...

patient renter said...

Ahh, very nice. No worries Max, you're stats are from a different perspective.

Jacob said...

Sounds interesting. I remember trying to check them out several months ago cause a lot of people seem to like them, but they weren't in my area obviously.

So I will have to check them out now.

Max said...

No worries Max, you're stats are from a different perspective.Yeah, but their stuff is so pretty. :)

Seriously, I've always seen Redfin as a step forward real estate. I'm a data driven guy, and my raison d'etre as a blogger is to use data to help people make better house buying decisions.

When they start doing a "Flippers In Trouble" sheet, then I'm really screwed!

luca said...

finally - Realtors are a waste of time and do not deserve 3% and 6% between 2 of them is insane.

Redfin to the rescue!!!!!!!

Matt said...

Thanks for the warm welcome! We're glad to be in Sacramento.

And we certainly don't intend to put any bloggers out of business! In fact, we'd love to help you out. Drop me a line at matt.goyer@redfin.com and we can chat about how we can work together.

Excellent!!!! Welcome Redfin. Now we'll get even more truth and transparency to the Sacto RE market. It's got kill those realtards out there and I bet this alone is good for another 2% decrease in prices alone. :)

Sweet, I have always been envious of San Diego's access to Redfin as many bloggers on Pigginton refer to it. Awesome!

Jacob said...

So how does redfin hurt realtors or help me avoid the commission exactly? If I see a MLS home I like there would stil be the selling agent getting 6% likely.

Or is it just that you can try and find FSBO homes?

Looks like alot of those cute realtor chicks will have to go back to working in cellphone booths or to the ex-husbands they dumped during the boom. The site is really slow tonight. I guess it's getting alot of hits.

@Jacob: Redfin has agents who can represent you on MLS homes. In areas Redfin directly services you get back half the buy side commission. In areas serviced by Redfin's partners, you get back half the referral fee.

Nice

paranoid renter said...

What's the difference between Redfin and Zip Realty?

Jacob said...

Redfin shows all the homes in your search on a map so you can easily see the area which I like.

It also gives the parcel number which saves time if you want to look up tax records. Otherwise you have to do a seperate seach to get the parcel number.

And you can search FSBO and bank owned non MLS homes.

Mopar, cute chicks never really have to work :)

Deflationary Jane said...

LOL! but Jeff, sometimes you guys are more work then you realize >; )

Years ago I began a painting of David Eraker chasing some gold jacketed realtors out of a house...northern mannerist style but very tongue in cheek. I'll have to dig that canvas back out again.
