Maureen Francis hosts this week’s Carnival of Real Estate at her miOaklandCounty blog. True to her Detroit-ish market she went with a Motown theme, and the clincher of the Diana Ross and the Supremes award went to a newcomer in the real estate blogging world, the FBS Blog.
FBS is brought to us by FBS Data Systems, an MLS provider. Their blog is not where you’d go to spend a leisurely Sunday afternoon of light reading; it’s an intelligent, well-written, and deeply industry-geeky look at what’s going on in the world of MLS’s today. The winning article looked at the changing landscape of MLS’s.
As a recovering consultant herself, Maureen found my penetrating analysis and highly analytical graphs in my article on the impact of bubblistas on the housing market to be worth a mention. (Actually, the numbers in that particular article were completely fabricated.)
Other mentions went out to:
- Nigel Swaby (Salt Lake City), with his article on FHA loans.
- Nina at QueerCents talks about the changing real estate environment for the LGBT community.
- Teri Lussier comments about her unexpected introduction as one of the new bloggers at Bloodhound.
- Diane Tuman from Zillow brings us a story about a neighbor from hell — perhaps somebody who would benefit from the “Make My Neighbor Move” program
- Jay Thompson tries a stripped-down approach to a real estate site.
- Seattle Housing Buzz wonders if there are too many CondoTels coming up in Seattle.
- Jim Cronin feeds us another juicy slice of Real Estate Tomato advice with a look at how to use blogging to pre-emptively answer prospective client’s objections.
Now if I can only figure out a to use my blog to get sellers to look at my buying clients’ pre-emptive offers!
Great job, Maureen!Tags: Carnival of real estate, Industry, Real estate
