Since, by 2020, most information on homes has become public and listed on the Internet — a wealth of data ranging from factual stats, past sales history, taxes, RPR data (once held confidential by Realtors), and neighborhood and school data — most buyers are not using brokers to find homes.

Houses are found on the most popular real estate Web sites — Craigslist, Wal-Mart and TruZilla, a merged portal. Buyers also watch the local television channels of brokers, with social media access.
