Somehow I got on another list of real estate blogs, which I appreciate – but maybe there are only 12 left?
The author has been a realtor in Killeen, Texas, but in April went to work for Zillow’s ibuyer division:
The #1 blog is run by a ReMax agent in Massachusetts. The example given is his post on the Top Lies Real Estate Agents Tell Home Sellers to Get a Listing.
He puts open houses on his list, due to the risk of theft, and that any buyer who want to see the home will do it by appointment too, making open houses unnecessary. A couple of realtors objected in his comment section, and he berated them for some reason.
The only time I’ve had a theft at an open house was in 2003 when we lost a Vicodin perscrption in Solana Beach. I’ve done hundreds of open houses since, and never had a problem. The big benefit I experience is having the Fear of Loss kick in with the attendees, which makes them hurry up and make an offer – and usually a better one at that, so they don’t lose it.
The other point was that he put me on the B2B list, suggesting my blog is tailored to agents?
His site, bubbleinfo.com, features more than just real estate blog posts. He frequently talks about the big picture stuff going on in real estate, and brings a refreshing and analytical approach.
I’d love to get feedback on whether the content here is too focused on agents. I think I talk about what agents do in order to help educate consumers, but if it comes off as too much agent stuff, I’d like to know it.
I work in a vacuum here! Help me out if you can.
