Hey all. There is so much real estate technology out there, and I'm trying to stay as current as I can with all of it. I'd love to follow a few trustworthy blogs that review new technology for realtors so I can know what's out there and also know whether or not to jump on board. Any recommendations for good blogs? Thanks!

I think you have to be careful about trying to find too much of the "magic solution" with technology in this (or any other) business.

We forget that the most important thing is not the type of phone, tablet, or website that you're using. But it's really the knowledge, experience, and value you can give to your clients.

I think having a Smart Phone is probably a must-have item, but don't go spending hundreds of thousands of dollars a year on technologies that are cool/flashy just because you think it will be impressive to your clients and give you an edge. I have had the same iPhone 4 for the last 2+ years, and the same Macbook for 4+ years. I've updated a little bit on hardware and software, but haven't gone out and spent a bunch of money in hopes of gaining an advantage on the competition.

Use what you're comfortable with for a while, and when the time comes to upgrade, think multiple years in the future and stick with that piece of technology for a while.

I agree with Steve, while it is important to be modern and up-to-date with your technology, you also don't have to be the flashiest Realtor around. You may think you look cool, but in the eyes of your clients they don't really care.

I couldn't agree more on this comment.

Your tech won't communicate much to your client so don't spend too much time thinking on the latest tech, instead direct your focus on how to be the top agent in your market.

I think famous personnal blog on the net are better than real estate blog. You can advertise and make a brand reputation. On real estate blog it's just to learn and say hello to your competitor ^^

Thanks to all that shared their ideas of blogs to follow - there are some awesome ones mentioned. I particularly like UpNest, Inman News and FlyerCo. All three have some great informational posts.

Besides staying up to date with technology, another reason for following blogs is to get great ideas for your own blog. Looking at the number of shares, comments, etc on blog posts of other real estate agents can help you get great content ideas and see what types of information is generating the most buzz and traction.

I suggest you to follow forums which would be more useful than blogs. In forums people are discussing their queries related to real estate business. So its better to follow forums rather than going for blogs.

very cool, I had heard of a few of these websites, but not all of them, will make sure to check a few more out, but it seems to be getting harder and harder finding time each day to read all of the blogs and articles that look interesting, there are so many!

I like wolf street for a more market driven analysis of what's going on with the real estate market. But reader beware... all signs point to a bigger bubble than 2007.
