I use everywhere & everything as long as it's a good post or article. I then collect them & post them again using Hootsuite or Friends+Me.  Gives a better all around topic choice & exposure.

I just gather the links as I find them & put them in a word doc labeled Hootsuite - then post them as I have the time.

Jeff,

There are endless places to get these, however unless you are specializing in new home buyers, I would not recommend those types of sites.  The reaction I have seen from consumers is that they find it useless and insulting to their intelligence.  Just what we have observed, even though they may not know it all, that is why they hire a savvy agent.  A

One of my favorites is Cost Vs. Value where they look at various home renovations and tell you what your return on the investment is. It's based on your local region. For example, upgrading attic insulation can bring an 85% return on investment while adding a deck only brings a 65% return. Great tool for owners considering renovations before sale.

Mostly, stuff happens and it inspires me to write. Not so much what I have read to then pass on. My buyers and sellers are pretty savvy, but I also know they read my blogs and, some are "friends" on Facebook. So I don't get get too personal or snarky.
