Five months and a 200% increase - from 7,000 to 21,000+ entries - has tripled Real Estate Wiki since its launch in January. The non-profit wiki focuses exclusively on quality and free real estate information to home buyers, sellers and owners and industry professionals with no advertising of any sort.

According to a Real Estate Wiki spokesperson the three most popular categories used by consumers are the Glossary of Real Estate Terms (containing almost 3,000 terms), the over 600 Acronyms and the 1,500+ Frequently Asked Questions. The FAQ's are divided into 20 different categories such as Home Buying, Legal and Closing, Disclosure and Inspections, Staging, Marketing, Foreclosure, REO and Short Sale.

Similar to Wikipedia everything in Real Estate Wiki is of course searchable, but different than most other wiki's Real Estate Wiki has taken the real estate information and systematically also crossed referenced it into 70 industry and functionality categories. This makes finding key information even quicker and placing comparable information side by side very simple. During June another 30 categories are being added to enhance this feature even further.
