About UrbanTurf

To say UrbanTurf is an online publication about residential real estate is a little misleading (and boring sounding, frankly).


UrbanTurf is the website that people come to see their city’s best and most interesting homes for sale. It’s the site that those who are development-focused come to find out what new residential projects are going up in their neighborhood. It’s where you come to get the dirt about trends that could influence your home buying, selling or renting decision. And it is routinely a place that real estate fanatics come to think about their dream home or the next neighborhood they might want to upgrade to.

We publish three to four stories every day covering all the topics mentioned above and much more. Take a look at our homepage for a sense of our article mix.

UrbanTurf's flagship publication is in DC, where the site launched in July 2008. A second site followed in Chicago earlier this year, and chances are good that we will be arriving in a city near you (if you don't already live in the Nation's Capital or Windy City) before you know it.
