End of An Era: Death of The First Real Estate Wiki


I’m sad to report that as of a few minutes ago we shut down our wiki. The wiki was the first real estate wiki available, but unfortunately, we did not have the resources to build and maintain the wiki into what we had originally envisioned it as being. We are spending our time and energy in other areas of the site instead.

Since our wiki’s launch, several other wikis have emerged from some of the much-better funded real estate companies out there. It looks like we lost this battle (with who, I’m not completely sure – ourselves I guess), but at least we’ve got the satisfaction of being first!
