The offline real estate boom may be slowing, but the online boom continues, as a John Cook survey piece in today’s Seattle P-I demonstrates in passing by mentioning many of the companies, from Redfin, to iGenHome, to Zillow. Most of ‘em are seemingly map-centric Google mashup-ish things, which is nice, but not particularly exciting — especially when the buyer side of the market is slowing down.
One interesting real estate startup exception of which I recently became aware is Altos Research. While the company has not yet officially launched anything, you can get a sense of its plans by scanning the company’s blog. Some intriguing stuff.
