Every week, the Boston and D.C. Sweet Digs blogs each offer as many as 20 candid, saucy and analytical write-ups of recent sales, price reductions, open houses and real estate trends. Local coverage includes Back Bay, Cambridge and Somerville in Boston; and Bethesda, Loudoun County and McLean in the D.C. area.

Redfin’s investment in the blog’s quality has been significant. Redfin evaluated hundreds of candidates, and contracted with nine independent writers who are deeply knowledgeable about their local real estate market. As Sweet Digs’ Boston and D.C. readership grows, Redfin will expand its neighborhood coverage.

Redfin initially launched Sweet Digs in December 2006 in Seattle, adding San Francisco in February 2007 and Southern California in February 2007. Since launch, the Redfin Sweet Digs teams have written more than 4,500 posts, drawing at least 2,300 comments; and already more than 600 readers have signed up to receive the Boston or D.C. Sweet Digs newsletter.

“We wanted to bring the unbiased, consumer-to-consumer real estate dialogue happening on the West Coast to the East Coast,” said Bahn Lee, Sweet Digs’ managing editor. “The best real estate blogs on the East Coast are written by real estate agents, and Sweet Digs’ independent bloggers will be the perfect complement. Boston and D.C. Sweet Digs are written by college professors, award-winning journalists, stay-at-home moms and, most of all, real estate fanatics.”

Redfin is the real estate industry’s first online brokerage, currently available in Greater Boston; the San Francisco Bay Area; Greater Seattle; Southern California, including Los Angeles, Orange County, the Inland Empire and San Diego; and the Washington, D.C area.
