I get them fairly regularly usually for my other blog not AR, but ignore them or tell them no thank you. While I had a couple of guest bloggers in the past I knew them personally and felt their businesses and information would be helpful for my readers, and the readership was good!!

Yes, I have received them. Some of them had nothing to do with real estate whatsoever.  I would consider Guest posts if I felt it was something appropriate for my readership.  I have actually used Guest posts on rare occasions, but I'm the one doing the posting and controlling any links.

It a bad idea for those who can not wrap their mind around the value of collaboration.
Those who can will see an opportunity to gain access you can't buy from Zdevil.

My advise to the real estate agent is to respond, "Yes, I would be happy to blog on YOUR platform." IF they won't trust me with their significant audience, I certainly won't trust them with mine.

Yes, I utilize real estate guest bloggers from time to time on my WP blog and a few other sites I sometimes blog on. I screen the articles, updating as necessary for SEO and/or content, and always insist on long-form content. Some of those bloggers have been from the AR ranks and others either via email requests or referred from a group of RE bloggers I periodically engage with online.

I love a good guest blog. :) 

I get them quite often since I run the blog at Realtyna. MOST requests we get are random people working for marketing agencies that have nothing to do with real estate. Those don't get approved. But, I have made a handful of great connections with some great real estate experts and other blogs. Those people Aslo usually let me write for their blog in return. 

 

Tbh, it doesn't produce much business, but it is good for SEO, so long that the other website has a good ranking.

I get some here and there for the last couple of years.  Seems to go in spurts, usually when some SEO guru talks about outreach and guest blogging for backlinks/exposure.

 

I have not utilized guest blogging because I'm not setup for it and don't desire to be.  I understand the benefits of it for me and them (because I have listened to all the "gurus" talk about it), but I am not monetizing my blog and don't need the traffic.
