Is your real estate agent the Paris Hilton of the industry?

June 9th, 2007 · 6 Comments

This past week, I half-heartedly advocated that real estate agents should use Twitter as a means to communicate with clients. Today, I had the probably behind the times realization that a web-savvy client doesn’t need Twitter to check up on their Realtor. As Realtors increase their online presence through blogging, Active Rain, and other tools, […]

Redfin – 60 Minutes

May 19th, 2007 · 9 Comments

Sorry – I was beginning to think that if I didn’t use the words “Redfin” and “60 Minutes” at some point this week I wouldn’t be able to call Pittsburgh Homes Daily a real estate blog in the future. Yawn.

Welcome, High Profile Real Estate Bloggers

April 30th, 2007 · 10 Comments

When I posted my list of 750 real estate blogs at the start of April, I speculated that there were over 1,000 active real estate blogs.  Since that date, I have discovered two real estate blogs within an hour of Pittsburgh that I was unaware existed.  Now, I’ve been emailed about two high profile real estate […]

Blogging as the next lemonade stand

April 21st, 2007 · 2 Comments

Beautiful weather in Pittsburgh this weekend and people have been out and about! Today, I attended Bootcamp PGH and had a great time.  I will definitely be attending Podcamp in August. Two highlights of the event that especially stick in my mind.  The first was a startup ice breaker in a session led by Guru.  […]

More Pgh Real Estate Blogs!

April 14th, 2007 · 1 Comment

As I’ve been searching the country for real estate blogs, I have to shamefully admit that I’ve missed two in my own backyard.  The Realtor Association of Metropolitan Pittsburgh has been blogging since December 2006 at on RAMP: Real Estate Newswire; and Jeff Philibin of Allied Home Mortgage in Johnstown also has a Mortgage blog. Sorry!  […]

Blog Wakeup Day?

April 14th, 2007 · 1 Comment

After publishing my list of 750 real estate blogs, one issue as I go forward is how to handle the problem of inactive blogs.  My original thought was to drop the blog from the list — if there are no posts in X months.  One suggestion has been to put an (I) next to the […]

Wave of spam to hit real estate bloggers?

January 25th, 2007 · 12 Comments

Someone has posted on rentacoder here my list of real estate blogs (and a few others) and is trying to pay someone to capture the contact information of the real estate blog owner (as well as whether the blog uses mybloglog). Any thoughts on who this person is, what they are doing, and how we can […]

Internet Linking Etiquette

January 24th, 2007 · 14 Comments

Since starting this blog, I’ve seen the debate about attribution of sources of material a number of times.  But I haven’t seen a good debate about the right to link to material in the first place.  Greg Swann from the Bloodhound Blog raised a storm yesterday about a real estate blog provider that used a screenshot of his blog and a link to […]
