The Old Big Book

YESTERDAY’S BEST HOME SEARCH – Before the mid-nineties, the best way for consumers to view homes was to visit a Realtor’s office. Consumers could ask to see a copy of the “The Big Book” of MLS Listings. The Book was typically updated with new listings every 7 to 14 days. These books of Black and White photos were in very limited supply. Therefore it was a big deal if a consumer could keep the Book overnight.
