The National Association of Realtors announced that as of September 18th network members will have exclusive access to the .realestate top level domain extension. The general public will have access to the domain on November 26th at 7pm EST.

Many different industries have adopted top level domain structures over the last several years to provide a more dedicated experience on the web for users. Examples of this include .realtor, .gov, .edu.

Should You Get a .realestate Domain?

If the .realestate extension is going to have any benefit, it will come around slowly. .com domains are the standard that everyone’s familiar with. You have been building authority around your .com domain so we would not recommend redirecting your .com domain to .realestate. If anything, grab the .realestate domain and redirect it to your current .com domain.
