Real Estate. What have you done to the real estate page? The maps with flags to click are slow and inaccurate. What was wrong with providing a straight forward list of addresses, by town, for open houses? Clicking flag by flag is tedious and inaccurate. Not only that, but today's map failed to show with green flags which homes would be open.

Please return to the former format. It worked.

I LOVE the new page. You can look at open homes either on the map or in list form. Just select "show only open homes" under Search Options and click on "Table View." It's so much more convenient and useable than before. I think you just need to spend a little more time with it.

Why can't I find the old home sales? My neighbors house sold just last year and I forgot how much it went for and I do not want to have to ask them and be rude. Why is this information a secret lately, lots of stuff used to be out there, now it it really hard to find.

What is the link to the Home Sales Data Base you had that went back to 1994? Could you add that link back to your new Realestate page?

I also want the past home sales since 1994. I like to see how the demographics have changed - dramatically via the names. It is a bit telling....
