In reading Curt Beardsley’s letter, and Andrea’s article in Inman, I couldn’t help but take note of the “Internal Project” known as “Save Listhub.”
Save Listhub from who, or what?
Why does Listhub need to be “saved?”
Zillow and Trulia receive a good bit of their listing content from Listhub so if Listhub goes away, how long will it take the major portals to replenish their supply of active listings?
My experience is that securing data contracts from MLSs takes a little time. Zillow knows this as well, based on Bob Bemis’s experience over the last few years.
So what will it take for Listhub to be saved, and what will Zillow and Trulia do to save it?
