One of the things does extremely well is make real estate the hero. “Get a load of these windows,” prompts one post. “It’s glamorous, sumptuous, luscious—and other words ending with ‘ous’—but likewise restrained,” jokes another. This makes the blog an enjoyable read, even if the houses being featured are well out of your price range. also knows that great photos are as important as copy. Every post includes something that catches the eye and encourages you to keep scrolling down to see what pops up next. Not every post is about property either - many are links back to other interesting things the writers have found that have only a loose connection to real estate.

Another aspect of that real estate agents could emulate is the way it engages it audience with giveaways. Take a look at this recent post for a prime example of how to run a giveaway.
