Interviews from Jon Lansner’s blog for the Orange County Register

I contacted Jon about a week ago. Jon works as a real estate writer for the Orange Country Register and also runs a very popular blog for the paper called “Lansner on Real Estate”. His blog is great fun and always an interesting read. He was interested in Dwellicious but more importantly of how social media was changing real estate. We talked a lot and he sent me over a few questions to answer. Below are links to Part I and Part II of that interview.

Maybe we’re on to something….

There have been a few posts lately from various blogs in the past week talking about Dwellicious and/or tools that provide some of the same functionality. Good to see that the idea is catching on…

The Move Towards Collaborative Search Online
“This is largely an activity that to date has largely only happened offline. Collaborating with a spouse or partner in a house hunt is certainly nothing new, as is passing around a listing sheet or property flyer to friends and family. But you now have a whole breed of web-based applications (Dwellicious also springs to mind) that are helping better enable this activity online.”

DwellIcious for OpenRealty and WordPress
“It is my opinion that Dwellicious is going to be as big as any of the macro services currently so popular in social networking and it is my gut feeling that integration with other services is on the horizon.”

Dwellicious WordPress Plugin
“Hey a quick note, we have a new FREE plugin for WordPress ready to roll. As soon as WordPress approves it I’ll upload it to WordPress and you can display your Dwellicious.com bookmarked listings into a blog post or a featured listings widget.”

Plus John L. Scott announced a their new JLSconnect service.
