Remember When the MLS Came in a Book?

#ThrowbackThursday -- Remember the old multiple listing service books? That's right, before computers, Agents depended on a book with all of the previously sold homes to conduct their Competitive Market Analysis' (CMA.) 



Listings also came in books. Who recalls adjusting their schedule, more than two decades ago, so that you could meet with your agent at precisely the moment the "new book" would be delivered to the local real estate brokerage? Or as an Agent, do you remember your schedule full of appointments around "book day?"



While most weekly MLS books in this country have given way to instant Internet listings, files and categories, a few associations and agents still prefer to thumb through pages of paper listings instead of digital, visual, interactive, online presentations.
