The National Association of REALTORS has put out an infographic that shows the difference in 35 years in the real estate industry.   Five notable nuggets from the survey's 35-years of data: Participation from first-time buyers is depressed; the internet is not replacing a real estate agent; buyers have bought slightly bugger homes but the pace is currently at a standstill; down payments have trended down over time, but not in recent years; the home search is taking longer - tight inventory has slowed pace in the past two years



I thought this information was very interesting, and have only seen the last 20 years of differences.
