RealSavvy not so savvy?
18 Dec 2014
The ‘pin and save’ model of real estate startup RealSavvy isn’t new, but it IS new to real estate, and some real estate listing sites are objecting. According to Inman News, Zillow is one site that has demanded that RealSavvy disallow Zillow access. As is, it seems a bit doomed, though there are changes the startup might make to ward off its demise.
