For The Consumer
These are a few consumer oriented sites I think are noteworthy: Here in Chicago a site called
Blockshoppers.com takes the concept of publishing 'recent sales' to a higher level by posting a short bio and picture of each new property owner. The site is limited at this writing to the Lincoln Park and Lakeview neighborhoods and requires a little navigation but I like it a lot.
Another cool blog I recently came across (actually he happened upon this site) is Kyle Else's Open House--The Tour Sheet Blog. The author is a "real estate consumer who follows the industry" hailing from somewhere within the borders of the USA!
Craig Schiller at both RealEstaging and Home Staging Rants & Ravings shares some great vision regarding the subject of...you guessed it Home Staging! And as always there's My Mortgage Guru, Chris Hahn over at Lasalle ABN AMRO, with a top notch presentation of consumer oriented video clips in the sidebar.
