RealMassive – Alternative Aggregator Version 2.0

Remember CIMLS, RealUp, Commercial Source or BuildingSearch? I didn’t think so. Sprouting up all over the place several years ago, those were some of the alternative aggregators meant to put LoopNet out of business.

At the time “free” was the big issue so every one of them was a free to list and search service. Some offered marketing options, but essentially, they were LoopNet clones – just without the name recognition or traffic. Data entry was mostly manual but updates were few and far between by both agents and the aggregator.  If anyone did stumble across one of these site, there were nothing but stale listings. Same old model, same old problems.

So whenever yet another alternative aggregator pops up, I generally yawn. Then I talked with Joshua McClure from RealMassive. Not only are they addressing the stale listing issue but they have a shot at getting in front of users. And new? They’ve got that, too.
