Curbed.com expanding into local markets

The real estate blog network Curbed.com — which is already in SF, NY and LA — just took in $1.5 million in financing to add staff and expand to other cities. Among the investors? Nick Denton and Gawker Media. “We’re not just about real estate,” said Curbed Publisher Lockhart Steele. “People come to the site to talk about their neighborhoods and about life in the city.” Of course, this is a perfect platform for local real estate advertisers, especially condos — which is a lucrative market space right now.

Also, Zillow announced today a very innovative way to match advertisers at a granular level with home buyers and sellers. Keep an eye on this, folks.
