Neighborhoods.com, a national real estate brokerage aimed at helping homebuyers find their perfect neighborhood and home, is looking for freelance contributors to write about neighborhoods and cities in the following states:
We’re looking for writers who can talk about their neighborhood in the authoritative but approachable way of a longtime local. Ideally, you could talk about your neighborhood’s real estate landscape and restaurants with equal ease, but real estate knowledge isn’t a requirement.
Rates start at $100 for 1,000-word articles, but can be higher based on the scope of the project. Some pieces may need a quote from a neighborhood resident or industry expert, but generally these articles are based on your experience and knowledge.
Here are some examples of the kind of content we publish:
Insider’s looks at urban neighborhoods, suburbs, and master-planned communities: Articles spotlighting what makes a community great—things to do, public transit options, architecture, greenspaces, schools, etc.
Homebuying resources: The ins and outs of buying a home in specific communities written in an engaging, easy to understand manner
The best neighborhoods for … : How to experience the best a city has to offer through its neighborhoods (such as places to eat or things to do), or neighborhood roundups for prospective homeowners (most affordable neighborhoods, best neighborhoods to find condos, neighborhoods with fixer-uppers, etc.)
Personal narratives: Taking readers on a tour of your neighborhood or sharing your experience buying a home
Check out our blog for more examples of the kind of content we publish.
