About RCG

Our mission at Rain City Guide is simple. We want to be the best resource for real estate information in the Seattle area.

With that in mind, a group of dedicated real estate professionals has decided to work together to provide you with a constant stream of updates about the local real estate market. Unlike other sites that are simply focused on giving you data, the group at Rain City Guide has organized around a “blog” in order to provide context to the vast amount of real estate information that is available!

What is Blogging?

The WordPress site has a wonderful introduction to blogging and rather than go into all the detail, here are the important characteristics of a blog:

Blogs tend to have a few things in common:

  • A main content area with articles listed chronologically, newest on top. Often, the articles are organized into categories.
  • An archive of older articles.
  • A way for people to leave comments about the articles.
  • A list of links to other related sites, sometimes called a “blogroll”.
  • One or more “feeds” like RSS, Atom or RDF files.

The contributors to this site enjoy blogging because blogs, by their very nature, tend to break down communication walls and open up a real discourse. We always enjoy your feedback, so please feel free to leave comments and join in our discussion!
