Real Estate Classifieds

Yesterday I spent some time reading the Real Estate section of the Chicago Tribune. I did this a lot when I was younger, in high school and college, as an educational process. I used to pay a lot of attention to the small picture ads and even the classified listings to try to get a feel for values in various sectors of the metro area. Does anybody do that anymore? Read the listings, I mean. It hit me yesterday that the section looks pretty much the same as it did twenty years ago, even though the Trib has a pretty stout internet presence. Haven't sites like, not to mention the Tribune's own real estate search capability, rendered the printed listings obsolete?

Just seemed kinda odd to me.
