The UK’s property industry is thriving, and where industries thrive, content follows suit. It can be a full-time job keeping up to date with property news, whether you work regionally or nationally, so we thought we’d compile a list of the three best UK property news sites to follow in 2018 - one's that aren't necessarily on the same scale as The Guardian.
If you keep a close eye on these, or even sign up to their newsletters, you should be able to comfortably keep abreast of all relevant, exciting and sometimes eye-watering property news.
Let’s take a look at our top three picks.
‘Where news comes first’. Property Industry Eye stays true to its strapline as it brings us the latest property news from across the UK with roughly 10-20 news uploads a day.
National house prices, parliamentary debates and both commercial and residential property news are just some of the topics covered daily, along with an incredible array of reader-submitted content. Property Industry Eye has its own blog portal named ‘The Arena’, in which subscribers can upload their own content to generate discussion and debate.
Touted as “dedicated to the publication of independent, unbiased, factual and accurate news for the UK property market”, we’re sure you’ll find all the news you need, right here.
Homes & Property is a leading newspaper property supplement. Although working with a strong focus on the London area, the publication has a wide range of national hit points including buying, mortgages and new-builds.
Even if you don’t work in the property industry, you’ll still find a lot of content to aid you in buying, guide you through mortgage woes or inform you of how to get out of a dodgy contract. If the headline “What happens if your rogue landlord is the local council itself” speaks to you, then it’s time to get reading!
As an all-rounder, this is probably one of the best UK property news sites to follow in 2018.
And we couldn’t write this without mentioning our very own Place North West (PNW) - the home of property news and insights for the North West! PNW is a business-to-business website for property and regeneration professionals from across the region.
With a readership of over 65,000 a month viewing their website and daily newsletter, PNW is a hub of reliable and insightful property content featuring exclusive stories from across Manchester, Greater Manchester and as far afield as Lancashire and North Wales.
Alongside news content, PNW hosts a resources platform that allows users to upload their own industry-specific content, featuring articles on the latest GDPR compliance rules for estate agents to using LinkedIn to secure pre-lets for your commercial property scheme. If you’re reading this, you must already be a fan!
And that’s it, those are our three best UK property news sites to follow in 2018 – you’ll get professional insight, both regional and national hot topic news and a lot of food for thought.
