Once in a while I like to share some of my favorite sources for interesting local news, both real-estate related and otherwise. Now is one such time. So let’s just get right to it.
The Seattle Times Real Estate Section – This sub-page on the Times could definitely use a little layout love, but Eric Pryne et al have been putting out some really quality material lately. You can get an RSS feed of their real estate stories here.
New To Seattle – As the name implies, this site is written by a recent transplant to Seattle, William P. Barrett, who also happens to be a Senior Editor with Forbes. His posts are neither frequent nor regular, but are always an interesting read.
GeekWire – The current project of former Seattle P-I (then Puget Sound Business Journal) tech writers John Cook and Todd Bishop, GeekWire is a great place to get local tech news. It’s like TechCrunch with less noise, less ego, and a fun local touch.
Urbnlivn – Still a fan of Matt’s non-stop work covering the local condo scene. Having started just 8 months after Seattle Bubble, I think he and I have the two longest-running regularly updated local real estate sites.
The SunBreak – In their own words, “The SunBreak is an online magazine of news & culture. It’s a conversation about all the things on Seattle’s mind.” I find the writing to be a refreshing, independent take on Seattle goings-on.
Curbed Seattle – Real estate tabloid. Definitely falls on the “entertaining” end of the spectrum as opposed to the “useful” end, but there’s nothing wrong with entertaining well, which Curbed does.
What are your favorite local sites?
