Google Maps for Real Estate
New Listing Layer to Google Maps
Posted by: Retechnology
Another day, another improvement to Google Maps that increases time spent on the site.
A few days after sending shock waves throughout the portable navigation industry, Google's back adding features to Google Maps that will once again draw the attention of the real estate industry. Google Maps has been showing real estate listings since this summer, but the company added a few tweaks Thursday designed to make it easier to search for a new home with Google.
If you're looking at a particular slice of the world through Google Maps, you now have the option to select "Real Estate" from a dropdown box in the "More" section on the top of the map. And for those unable to afford real estate in San Francisco—or unwilling to pay the shockingly high prices offered in this town—Google Maps also now offers rental listings.
