16th Anniversary: Consumer Revolution in Real Estate

Sixteen years after the original event in Boston, The Real Estate Cafe is celebrating the “Consumer Revolution in Real Estate” with the “soft” launch of our Real Estate Cafe fan page on Facebook and a Twitter post with a link to Ralph Nader’s keynote speech:

We’re also inviting real estate consumers, both buyers and sellers, to help plan a series of real estate round tables to discuss reforms and money-saving opportunities in real estate, including a possible “unconference” for home owners selling for sale by owner tentatively called a “FSBO Camp.”

As an idea starter, topics and panelists from the original 1993 conference are shown on our wiki. What NEW topics would you like to see discussed, and who would you like to see participate or lead those discussions? Bonus points for nominating yourself or a product or service you would like to demo!

Several REBarCamps, which are B2B (business-to-business) events, have occurred in the past nine months, and REBarCamp Boston is scheduled for June 12, 2009. Like the original event in 1993, FSBOCamp would focus on business-to-consumer (B2C) and consumer-to-consumer (C2C & C2B2C) opportunities.

Follow http://Twitter.com/RealEstateCafe and individual wiki pages, including our experimental new FSBO wiki, for more updates.
