Google Real Estate Search - Now in U.S.
This from Michael Jones:
Last night a Real Estate listings layer was added to Google Maps in both the USA and Australia. Note that the listings are nation-wide in each case irrespective of the availability (to us) of parcel map data.
It is interesting to use the price ranges (more than $20m, say, for expensive houses, or under $20k for inexpensive ones) to create a browseable information surface of the country’s housing demographics.
I could not find any discussion of it on the Web today. I see this when I check the Google Real Estate Search under “Featured Content” under “My Maps”:
Google Real Estate Search
Note: This mapplet will be removed shortly. There’s now an easier way to find real estate directly in Google Maps by clicking the More… button!
By clicking the More… button on the top right of any map, then clicking Real Estate you can discover properties on the map.
Indeed if you click the “More” button (on the map, next to Traffic) you’ll see the app. You can also access the app at this link.
I do recall much excitement when this app and data appeared in Australia back in July. (Search Engine Journal) Some outlets said it was also available in the U.S. back then (Accucast), but that doesn’t seem to have been the case.
