Has Previewing Homes Gone by the Wayside? I recently read a comment whereby a member said that they didn't preview homes (there was one exception).  But it just made me wonder if previewing homes has gone by the wayside. I know that when gas prices topped the $3.00/per gallon mark, agents drastic...
