The Change is Here

We're back from our road trip.

I have been thinking about a book I read at the turn of the century and it reminds me that we are indeed close to a tipping point in the residential real estate industry.

The name given to that one dramatic moment in an epidemic when everything can change all at once is called the tipping point.

Malcolm Gladwell wrote a book saying as much called, The Tipping Point, How Little Things an Make a Big Difference.

Note: John Reilly and I returned from a major real estate industry conference yesterday, Brad Inman's Connect Conference in San Francisco. The continuing message that we hear and see is the clarion call about the change coming in residential real estate. 

But more than the message of change, is the imminence of disruptive change as the last technological pieces for the online transaction are soon put in play.

John and I have been preaching change since 1994, and one of our slogans evangelizing technology to the real estate industry was, "It's the little things that make a difference."

The change we have been forecasting is accelerating for many reasons which we have been discussing and we will continue to discuss. Our three days at the Inman Connect Conference in San Francisco confirmed our ideas on where we are headed in the residential real estate space.
