I'm a volunteer for The Real Estate Wiki, as I believe in making general real estate information more freely available to everyone. No one should struggle to find the definition of a term, the correct meaning of an acronym or abbreviation, to be able to get a real estate question answered or even waste time finding the contact details of real estate service provider, broker or agent.
All my posts are either from the Real Estate Wiki or are answered through informaton I get from the Real Estate Wiki. I inject my own opinions, of course, but the more I read the Wiki, the more educated I'm becoming about real estate as a whole.
The Real Estate Wiki can help you find what you need, too.
It is a non-profit, privately funded, free real estate encyclopedia, directory and wiki.
It offers a lot of helpful information for the real estate industry at large and has grown to over 25,000 entries from their launch in January with 7,000 entries.
As a little background, it was created by a group of about 15 real estate professionals who felt the industry was being underserved with the quantity and quality of real estate specific information on Wikipedia and felt that our industry was large and significant enough to justify its own freestanding wiki.
