BloodhoundBlog is unlike other real estate blogs. And they're pretty proud of that fact. The goal is to invent 'Real Estate 2.0.' In their own words, they're looking to promote the "confluence of Social Media Marketing, Direct Marketing and belly-to-belly selling." They also describe their site as being what you'd wish to find in Realtor magazine, but don't. This site is about empowering consumers as they make what will probably be the biggest and most important purchase of their lives. With BloodhoundBlog's help, readers can avoid running into "sleazoild vendors" along the way.
BloodhoundBlog began as a Phoenix-area publication. Shortly after that they expanded to San Diego. And not long after that they're content (and audience) went national. One look at their masthead can verify this. They've got writers from California to Rhode Island and everywhere in between. And while it's true this site is meant to introduce social media, and therefore greater transparency to the real estate process for the consumer's benefit, it still reads well for the industry professionals, too.
I got to be honest, I kind of love this blog. This headline "Real Estate Licensing Laws Are a Criminal Conspiracy Against the Consumer Crafted by and for the Benefit of a Cartel" is simply amazing. Really, the whole site is. Real estate to me is a murky industry. The idea of having a site like this walking out ahead, sniffing things out is good to have.
