Ashley Halligan blends the location-based world of real estate with a gusto for being on the go


DEADLINE NEWSROOM – Ashley M. Halligan’s nose for real estate news and her deep-seated wanderlust gives her a unique perspective on both housing for staycations and housing for vacations.

Halligan has been a contributing editor with DeadlineNews.Com since late 2011 and interest in her content is so strong, copy she penned back in December 2011 was still on the DeadlineNews.Com’s Top-10 list in March 2012.

Halligan wrote her hit story “Short-term rentals ever more popular, but not without risks,” as a partner piece to “Personal, financial investment returns make short-term rentals ever more popular,” another popular DeadlineNews.Com story.

Boots on the ground

Together, the stories examine the risks and returns of short-term rental properties, both second homes rented out to travelers and vacation rental properties purchased as an investment.

In addition to a degree in journalism, Halligan brings wanderlust to the table.

She’s a “contemporary pilgrim” who engages “The arts of hand-crafting journeys and hand-crafting life,” as a travel writer and travel concierge serving up both trip-planning services and prose that really puts the location, well, in the location.

After only a few articles, Halligan’s content quickly received syndication status in an agreement between DeadlineNews.Com and to publish Halligan’s stories.

“You can’t squander content like Ashley’s. You have to find a way to share it,” said Broderick Perkins, founder and executive editor of DeadlineNews.Com.
