New Times recently gave me an opportunity to write a weekly article for their real estate section. While I really appreciated the offer, I turned it down yesterday. One of the main reasons is that I felt I would need to write articles that other Realtors advertising in their newspaper would be ok with. Unfortunately, I felt that would be too much of a headache for the added exposure I’d get and it would be virutally impossible to write an interesting article that some other Realtor wouldn’t complain about. Even reporting the facts about what’s going on in the market will not go over well with some Realtors if it isn’t rah-rah news.
I like being able to share information in my blog and websites that I would want to know if I was Buying or Selling on the Central Coast! But, I really do like the New Times and do appreciate them approaching me with the offer.
