Instead of singing the praises of his local market, Greenwich, Conn., buyer’s agent Christopher Fountain has built an audience for his blog, “For What It’s Worth,” by tearing it down.

“The essence of his complaint,” writes the New York Times’ Landon Thomas Jr. in a profile of Fountain, is that “decades of easy money and ceaseless greed have created a glut of unsalable houses that will remain a blight on his hometown for many years.”

Fountain catalogs residents’ “run-ins with the law, debt-fueled implosions or plain old bad taste,” Thomas says, winning a “cult following” among the very people he’s making fun of: “financial titans who can afford to plunk down $5 million or more on a house.” Source: New York Times.
