The Multiple Listings Service Is My New Porn
So we are thinking about buying a house. More than thinking, actually--gotten the pre-approvals and a realtor, we know our price range and potential location(s). And I cannot. stop. looking. at houses online. It's gotten to the point that I immediately recognize when a new listing is posted. When I tire of looking at houses we might actually consider, I'll do searches for other counties, to marvel at how expensive or bemoan how cheap things are there. I'll scroll until my eyes glaze over and I can't tell one house from the next. The voyeurism of looking in people's lighted windows when I drive past has been taken to a whole new level. I feel like I could take a photo from each listing and write a short story about it--a depressing, judgemental short story. I can't stop.
