real estate blogs

Brent Finnegan -- November 30th, 2007

I don’t really understand the real estate market, so it’s nice to have someone in-the-know blogging about the local market — even if they’re ultimately trying to sell you something. Real estate blogs in bigger cities often contain useful information, whether you’re looking to buy, or simply looking for some insight into the local economy.

In March, TM posted a link to Roger Monger’s blog about “issues relative to real estate in the Harrisonburg and Rockingham County area.” That blog didn’t last long (his most recent post is from March). Then, in July, I discovered Harrisonburg Real Estate, John Knauf’s blog “about the state of the real estate market and the housing market in particular in Harrisonburg, Virginia.” But I’ve left a few comments on that blog, none of which showed up there, and there have only been three posts total.

This week, Scott Rogers with Coldwell/Funkhouser contacted me to add his Caffeinated Real Estate Blog to the aggregator. It looks like Scott’s blog will be far more active than its predecessors. So far this month, he’s covered the mortgage market, tankless water heaters, downtown development, short-term rentals at Massanutten, and the proposed college student housing “high rise” on Port and Devon.

    Finnegan — thanks for getting my feed into the aggregator.

    I started my blog a few weeks ago with the hope of creating a forum for public discussion on our market, and a place for people to learn not only about our market, but also the buying and selling process.

    I’m glad to do the research and provide commentary on any real estate topics / questions / issues / debates that might be of interest.

    And you are correct — I’ll be keeping my blog active. There is a lot to talk about when it comes to real estate in the Shenandoah Valley!

    Completely unsolicited plug… Scott is a great agent in case anyone is in the market. He was my buying agent and he’ll be my selling agent this spring. He knows his stuff and does tons of research. Plus he’s just an all-round great guy.

  3. Really good website Scott. I haven’t delved into it seriously yet, but I definately will. Congrats on your new blog! I put it on my favorites!
