WSJ seeks national housing reporter
The global real estate bureau of The Wall Street Journal is seeking a reporter with a track record for breaking news and conceptualizing big picture stories to cover the housing market.
The ideal candidate for the job is someone who can spot trends early and quickly turn over stories that are compelling and memorable.
This is a high profile and fast moving beat that touches many topics, including the economy, demographics, the growth of foreign money and investors in real estate, the lingering fallout from the foreclosure crisis, suburban vs. urban development and property-tax trends.
The beat also involves mining economic data to find stories that explain how housing trends are helping or hindering the broader U.S. economic recovery. The reporter will be expected to work closely with other beat reporters covering federal and local housing policy and home-builders.
Candidates should have at least five years of reporting experience.
