UrbanTurf Chicago Real Estate Guide writer Jacqueline Zenn highlights some of Chicago's top neighborhood blogs and their influence on real estate and home ownership.
Zenn writes "While spending time in a given area is by far the best way to get to know what makes it interesting and special, it is hardly practical for most. However, prospective home buyers and potential new residents can check out the many independently-run neighborhood blogs as a way to get a quick primer on the various facets and idiosyncrasies of a given area".
She goes on to mention two Rogers Park blogs, The Broken Heart of Rogers Park and Rogers Park in 1,000 Words "Written by long-time resident Bill Morton, this blog offers a slightly more positive view of Rogers Park with excellent visuals (a picture being worth a thousand words and all)".
Other blogs deemed worthy of checking out by UrbanTurf include Sloopin (South Loop), Hard Scrabbler (Bridgeport), Hyde Park Progress, Uptown Update and Edgewater Community Buzz.
