Marie Hagman has some new colleagues…

I’ll be fast asleep by the time the embargo on this one is lifted, so I’ll trust Wordpress to release this post at one minute after midnight.

The news?  Redfin continues its 2.0 community exploits by releasing a flock of citizen bloggers on the Bay Area.  Let me be the first to welcome these seven fellow bloggers, who will be writing up several properties each week.  Good for both Google SEO juice and property voyeurism, I’m looking forward to reading their write-ups.
From the press release:

Online real estate broker Redfin Corporation today launched its eyewitness property review site, Sweet Digs, for the San Francisco Bay Area. Bay Area home-buyers now will be able to read daily candid reviews of properties for sale at blog.redfin.com/bayarea.

The new Bay Area Sweet Digs offers as many as 30 eyewitness reviews per week of properties for sale in Bay Area neighborhoods from Santa Rosa to Fremont, including Berkeley, Menlo Park, Mountain View, Oakland, Palo Alto and neighborhoods across San Francisco.

I’m a good 800 miles out of the jurisdiction of the NWMLS, but I’m sure our local MLS’s are paying close attention.  So, here’s what my semi-regular property reviews would look like if they were to be NWMLS-compliant… [...]
