RSS feeds are like a daily news source for many real estate agents- perhaps you follow the National Association of Realtors RSS feeds, the AOL real estate RSS feeds, or the Wall Street Journal's real estate RSS feed. No matter what RSS feeds you follow, if you are using Google Reader, you will have to find an alternative. If you want to keep your old feeds from Google, you can download and transfer your data to ensure you don't lose any of your data.
Other alternatives include Fever, The Old Reader, Netvibes, Pulse, Tiny Tiny RSS and NewsBlur. Each reader has its own unique features, and Google Reader's D-Day is still some months away, so you can take your time and try out different readers, analyze their features and go with the one that best suits your needs. I would not be surprised if we see some companies release clones of Google Reader in efforts to woo some of the current Google Reader users. We hate to see Google Reader go, but it's happening and you should take the steps to move your feed soon.
