Todd Zywicki at the VC has an interesting post on various barriers to competition in the residential real estate market. Todd's post highlights two very useful resources. First, the antitrust division of the DOJ has set up a website on competition issues in residential real estate. Second, Forbes has an excellent article on the title insurance market. The article explains how lack of competition dramatically increases title insurance costs to consumers.
