June 5, 2006
These days, you can use a computer to order an entire wardrobe without trying on clothes first. You could earn a college degree without ever setting foot in a classroom. Or buy a car without stepping onto the lot. But while so many transactions can be completed electronically, buying a house has remained rooted in the world of paper -- reams of it, in fact, as anyone who has sat through a tedious closing ceremony could attest to. The real estate industry has been slow to adopt change, and homeowners and buyers are still wary of putting such important financial information online.
