Job Description

In this role, this new reporter will cultivate sources at establishment real estate companies and newly minted startups, write daily articles as well as longer-term features about the real estate industry and its personalities, and pitch in across all corners of Inman’s coverage of residential real estate.

The ideal candidate recognizes both the potential of new shifts and their possible pitfalls, is enthusiastic about explaining difficult topics in a concise and cohesive manner and will be willing to ask tough questions about who is helped or hurt by the changes roiling the real estate industry.
