I was watching the classic real estate flick The Money Pit this weekend, and this scene in particular stood out to me. Note that The Money Pit was released in 1986, well before anyone outside of academia or government had any clue what the internet even was.
Fortunately by the time I was old enough to start thinking about buying a home, there were already a variety of halfway decent options for searching real estate online. When I watched this scene, I was amazed at how far this industry has come in the past twenty-five years.
I feel serious pity for anyone who had to experience the type of situation depicted above when making most expensive purchase of their life.
Full disclosure: The Tim is employed by Redfin.
