    • Damn... Have you ever sat there...watching a
      stock fall as CD did this afternoon and KNOW that it
      has falledn too far but still get shy about pulling
      the trigger on a buy? Could've gotten in under 18 and
      didn't. I'll take the trophy for dumb butt today, thank
      you very much!

      • It really amazes me of the stupidity and
        irrationality of this market (& its participants). Just because
        Microsoft launches a real estate site does not mean that it
        is going to have any revenue impact on CD. Think
        about it! MS is aggregating real estate listings and
        putting some nice content around it. Who owns the
        listings?? THE REAL ESTATE COMPANIES LIKE CENTURY 21!
        (except for the small number of For Sale By Owners). The
        companies that own the listings will still garner their
        commissions (aka revenues) for each home sale. Microsoft's
        HomeAdvisor website is more of a marketing tool that will
        HELP companies like Century 21 generate additional
        sales and cut expenses by having the users do all of
        the upfront research. DID ANYONE BOTHER TO LOOK AT AN
        INDIVIDUAL LISTING IN HOMEADVISOR AND SEE THAT THE REAL
        ESTATE COMPANY's BROKER IS LISTED THERE?? WHAT A GREAT
        MARKETING TOOL FOR THE AGENT/BROKER!

        Also note that
        MS only has around 500k listings out of a potential
        3 million at any given time. Go to Realtor.com and
        see what they do and realize the MS is doing the same
        thing. Another point is what happens if realtors/brokers
        do not wish to give their listings to MS (I don't
        believe that MS has that strong of a relationship with
        the industry). MS no longer has a product.

        Go
        figure..I guess the irrationality that is pushing CD down
        has just created a purchase opportunity. The stock
        price will be back up in a couple of days (unless these
        investors went and saw "Armageddon" this past weekend think
        that the sky is falling and will sell all that they
        own.

      • Microsoft launches free real estate
        site

        http://biz.yahoo.com/finance/980713/microsoft__4.html

        REDMOND, Wash., July 13 (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp. said
        Monday it launched a free on-line real estate service to
        help consumers to find homes
        and
        mortgages.

        Microsoft in a statement said its HomeAdvisor service
        (www.homeadvisor.com) streamlines the home-buying process from finding
        a realtor, to the
        desired neighborhood, to
        qualifying for a mortgage on-line.

        The real estate
        network represents more than 500,000 home listings
        nationwide with new listings added every day, the company
        said. The site draws on
        home listings from both
        national and local listing services.

        In addition to
        home and financial data, HomeAdvisor provides Inman
        Decision Support, an independent publisher of real estate
        advice, Microsoft said.

        Microsoft's new service
        faces competition from Realtor.com, a competing on-line
        real estate site that is owned by RealSelect Inc. of
        Westlake, Calif.,
        which has links to the National
        Association of Realtors.

        Other rivals include Cendant
        Corp.'s (CD - news) Century 21, HomeShark Inc. of San
        Francisco and CyberHomes of Minneapolis.
