By now everyone is familiar With the Internet and its Possibilities. But what is the Value for real estate professionals? Search engines help, but sorting the Wheat from the chafe can be an Overwhelming burden. Here are Some starting points.

Trade Organizations.

Almost Every industry group and trade association has a web site. Find out About the organization, its members, Articles, industry statistics, news and Upcoming events.

• Institute of Real Estate Management . . . . . www.irem.org

• National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts . . . . . www.nareit.com

• National Association Of Home Builders . . . . . www.nahb.com

• Urban Land Institute . . . . . www.uli.com
Government Sites.

Legal and Economic News.

Investigate Law Journal Extra!
This site—www.ljx.com/practice/Realestate/index.html—
is maintained By the National Law Journal and New York Law Journal publisher. It has a
searchable database of legal memoranda by various law firms.

Also, see the Inman News Features Site - www.inman.com.
It covers Residential and commercial real estate developments and economic news and has links to other sites.

Cut through the Web clutter!
The most useful sites organize, rank, and rate thousands of real estate sites of interest.
These eliminate visits to useless sites and waiting for downloads. There are two tandouts:

• PikeNet Directory of Commercial Real Estate . . . . . www.pikenet.com

• International Real Estate Directory . . . . . www.ired.com

What’s a “discussion list”? It’s a great tool for conducting ongoing conversations with Others. Another great way to use the World Wide Web. Find out more and how to join by checking the article “Internet, SchmInternet, What’s the Big Deal,” available at
www.abanet.org/rppt/junetech.html on like-interests.
