International Listings, a website with listings of luxury homes around the world, just put out a list of what it considers the top 100 real estate blogs. I’m happy to see that Hot Property made the cut. I can’t vouch for all 99 others, but there are some good ones on the list, and the thumbnail descriptions are informative. So click around. (Even if you’re not in the international luxury home market.)
BusinessWeek editors Chris Palmeri, Prashant Gopal and Peter Coy chronicle the highs and lows of the housing and mortgage markets on their Hot Property blog. In print and online, the Hot Property team first wrote about the potential downside of lenders pushing riskier, "option ARM" mortgages and the rise in mortgage fraud back in 2005—well ahead of many other media outlets. In 2008, Hot Property bloggers finished #1 in a ranking of the world's top 100 "most powerful property people" by the British real estate website Global edge. Hot Property was named among the 25 most influential real estate blogs of 2007 by Inman News.
