National UK broadcaster Channel 4 named The Big Property List Blog as one of their favourite Househunting Blogs this week, rating us alongside such great company as the House Historian and the Rat and Mouse property blogs.
(The Big Property List’s) meaty blog covers big topics in an accessible way. Posts about conveyancing, planning permission and selling at auction sit amongst the more topical house price speculation and other snippets from the news.

Earlier this year Primelocation named The Big Property List Blog runner up in their 2010 Property Blog Awards and we are delighted to be recognised in this way by a national broadcaster.
We are especially delighted that the aims of the blog – information and accessibility are recognised as it has always been our intention to provide a great resource accessible to everyone.
Those of you who are regular readers will notice a big change in our design today as we’ve re-branded The Inside Edge property blog to match our corporate website design over at www.thebigpropertylist.co.uk
Things may continue to move a round a bit as we take off the bubble wrap and play with it and your comments and feedback are most welcome.
The main site will launch very soon now and this is the last stage before we release the property search and property upload features. Many of the links won’t work until the rest of the site is live so please be patient!
For those of you who are a bit techy, we are using the latest version of WordPress (3.0) which in our opinion is the ultimate blogging platform and allows us to use cool features like dynamic menus that make our lives easier – horaah!
We were really pleased this week to discover that we’ve made it in to Technorati’s top 100 Real Estate blogs – worldwide! As the name suggests Technorati is the Web’s leading authority for blogs and attaining the upper ranks is no mean feat in the today’s rich blogosphere.
Thebigpropertylist.co.uk blog started out on Blogger nearly two years ago and has gone from strength to strength, attracting guest writers from all over the property blogosphere such as Ollie Cornes, professional Landlord and owner of Landlord software company Juicy Property and Sharon Crossland, tenancy expert and blogger of Leasehold Life.
Visitor numbers and contributions have continued to rise on a weekly basis and we have been really pleased by the positive and supportive emails we’ve received from readers in that time.
Our aim is to continue to bring you the latest UK property news as well as property articles on a range of useful and entertaining subjects. We will shortly be moving the blog to the prettier design that we employ on the main website as the property portal is finally getting close to launch (horaah!). Originally planned to be a ‘For Sale by Owner’ property sales portal thebigpropertylist.co.uk will offer an altogether different type of property search. The website has been delayed whilst we surveyed the market (especially in the wake of the Tepilo launch and while we finished other projects) and planned our next move. So, you will just have to wait and see what the final site brings!
