There was a time when the only way to find homes for sale was to engage a real estate agent to send you listings or drive up and down the streets scouting “for sale” signs. In the past decade, an explosion of online real estate listings services has drastically changed the way Americans look for homes. It’s now possible, with a click of a mouse, to find the sales price of the home next door, search for listings in a given school zone and take virtual tours of homes that interest you. With the multiple listing service (or a reasonable facsimile) at their fingertips, most would-be buyers these days send listings to their agents rather than the other way around.
