As most people know, I’m going to attempt to convert CribChatter to a Forum site so that all of you who want to chatter about a certain property or part of the city can do so more easily.
With inventory so low, it’s become difficult to find content that is remotely interesting. I thought I’d create a way for all of us to talk about real estate at least until the inventory situation improves.
For example, Milkster posted some questions recently about mold remediation and whether or not she should go through on a house purchase. The forum would be the perfect platform in which to ask this question.
I will have the site default to the Forums page so that everyone can easily see who is posting new topics and on what. The old content will not be lost. You will still be able to search the archives for the 5+ years of posts on properties.
I want to keep the Forum manageable and also easy to use.
From the previous site re-design, I know many of you have strong opinions about what works and what doesn’t and what you’d like to see.
What categories do you want as the Forums? Here are some possible examples:
- General Housing Market Conditions
- The GreenZone
- Inner Suburbs
Please chime in.
We’ll see how this goes. If it gets boring using Forums, we can always go back to individual posts on properties. Change is good.
