Why do you need my name and email address for a real estate tip?
We would like to have the opportunity to follow up on tips received via this real estate line. We pledge to maintain confidentiality–we will not identify anyone who submits a real estate tip, either in a story or in our reporting, unless the tipster agrees. Having contact info will allow us to follow up, if necessary, with the original tipster in the course of reporting a story. If you’d prefer to leave a real estate tip and not be contacted, please say so in the tip–but understand that it can be difficult for journalists to chase a story with only sketchy information.
