WCR to Unveil California Real Estate Blog Network

Real Estate FortunesIt’s fun to peer into the crystal ball and try to divine what fortunes lie ahead. It also helps when you have a visionary providing some tips and guidance.

Pat Kitano and Kevin Boer are two visionaries worth following, and they are convinced that 2008 will be the Year of the (Authoritative) Blog Network. Kitano’s linked article is a great read that provides good information and understanding of what blogging networks are–and how they can benefit both the consumer and the blogger.

An authoritative real estate blog is what the California Chapter of the Women’s Council of Realtors plans to launch at the end of January.

They are tapping their California membership seeking capable and knowledgeable real estate bloggers whose personal real estate blogs will feed into the California WCR Blog Network.

All of the member’s contributed blogs will be indexed and offered as an encyclopedic resource for home buyers and sellers.

As with most blogs, consumers will be able to enter into casual–and anonymous, if they choose–conversation with the blogging authors. Consumers and agents will be able to ask questions ranging from open houses, to market insights, to home selling strategies. The goal, says Kitano, is to promote the” free exchange of real estate knowledge without any sales pitch.”

Kitano and Boer, with Domus Consulting Group, are working feverishly to have the California WCR Blogs online by the end of this month. The site will feature not only mapping tools so viewers can check houses for sale, but can also find participating and local WCR bloggers to learn more about neighborhoods, market trends, home features and other real estate related topics.

The WCR Blog Network is revolutionary, says Kitano and will provide solid benefits for both the real estate consumer and the blog authors. “The WCR Blog Network home page in effect acts as the ‘main newspaper” to aggregate and distribute the published content of their agent “editors.” As a content repository, the blog network is positioned as a search engine magnet, and the resulting traffic flows through directly to the participating agent’s blogs.” Each blog, he says, is a separate website that reflects the personality and special expertise of its author.

The WCR Blog will be non-denominational, in that the blog authors will represent many different real estate companies, and their blogs may come from any number of frameworks including WordPress, TypePad or other available sources.

As a member of the Women’s Council of Realtors, I am tickled to share that I will be a representative blogger for North County San Diego when the WCR Blog debuts. For additional information, click here.

I have been on the fence about joining my local WCR.  Mabe this is a good reason to take the plunge.  Sounds like a great tool!

Ginger: It took Pat Kitano to convince me that WCR would be a good affiliation.  This blog network is a terrific idea and membership is a small price to pay. Hope to see you on board!
