4 Real Estate Blogs We Love
Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, PR Newswire selects an industry or subject and a handful of sites that do a good job with promoting and contributing to the conversation. This edition is all about real estate blogs. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tweet to us @BeyondBylines.
I’ve lately been hooked on watching real estate-related shows, namely the tiny house movement and house flipping.
Tiny houses are fascinating.
The storage solutions that builders come up with for such small spaces truly are genius. And the people who manage to live in those little beauties are equally interesting.
So this got me thinking about real estate this week. Let’s start with tiny houses.
1. Tiny House Blog
The Tiny House Blog covers “living simply in small spaces.” The blog was launched by Kent Griswold in May 2007.
“The goal of the tiny house blog is to discover the different options available for a person looking to downsize into a tiny house or cabin,” Griswold says.
I found several cool posts on this site. They include:
- Living Off Renewables In A Tiny House On Wheels
- Tiny House Family Life Insights and Design Ideas
- Couple Built Artistic $34k Tiny House

2. Brick Underground
Brick Underground features stories on “Real estate. Real Life. Real New York.” The site covers topics like buying, renting, selling, living, improving and escaping.
Brick Underground features really interesting content. Some posts that caught my eye include:
- How to rent out your NYC apartment on Airbnb
- How to get around the supply chain crisis when you’re updating your NYC apartment or brownstone
- What you need to know about living in Canarsie, Brooklyn

Paying your #rent via an app like @Venmo can be super convenient but might not work for everyone. #limits #liability #nyc https://t.co/4aVPbLn3LE pic.twitter.com/obKRQWkCBb
