Agents, CNBC’s Realty Check is Worth Your Time
In the course of researching this month’s real estate email newsletter article I stumbled upon Diana Olick’s Realty Check column on the CNBC site, and I have to say I wish I’d found it long ago. Each weekday she posts a short, well-researched blurb about some current real estate topic, from recently released housing reports to new legislation, and I found it to be an excellent source of up-to-the-minute real estate information.
One of the things I like about her writing is that she appears to have good insight into the issues and I think she tries to take a fair approach – she’s not out to spin the pros of real estate and at the same time she’s not someone who despises agents either – refreshing. 🙂 (I get so annoyed with people who act like they’re breaking barriers in the field of honesty, but if you read their stuff it turns out they’re as hopelessly biased as some of the industry ‘shills’ that they can’t stand.)
Anyway, are you tuning into something daily that keeps you on the frontlines of information that your clients may need you to know? I understand that checking a bunch of blogs every morning can become onerous, but this is one little column that will take you about 90 seconds to read and will almost always impart something worth knowing. I highly recommend that you give it a whirl.
