More, more, more real estate in Google Maps

Since we announced the ability to see lots of real estate listings directly on Google Maps back in July, we’ve been working hard to make it even easier to use. As we’ve added new features and updated Google Maps, with things like brand new high-resolution Street View imagery or detailed map data, Google Maps has become an even more useful tool for online real estate searching. Here are a couple of things you can look out for next time you visit.
First of all, we’ve made it easier to find real estate listings. Now, you can simply select “Real Estate” from the ‘More’ button on the top right of any Google Map to discover listings. From there, it’s a simple matter to refine your search using the left hand panel – price, bedrooms, bathrooms, and so on. Of course, you can still pan the map to search for the perfect neighborhood and it’ll automatically update with more listings.
Happy house hunting this weekend!
