Google Maps Can Find Anything, Even Real Estate Buyers - Google - Real Estate - Technology - Home Buyers

Google has improved its real estate search capabilities on Google Maps, a feature that lets people search for sale and rental property listings on its mapping service.

The tool enables real-estate agents and publishers to upload listings into Google's database and allows buyers to link directly to property and rental listings. It allows people to search on houses in the market, as well as nearby schools, restaurants, and public transportation. It also offers a Street View to check out the neighborhood before you get there. Search on "homes for sale in Los Angeles" in Google Maps and get a boatload of dots that signify the property listings in the area.

Markers on Google Maps now show the ten most relevant listings with pins, as well as a small circle on every other listing in that area using the search results layer. Clicking on a marker and each small circle provides more details about the property. This aims to give searchers a better idea of the distribution of properties for sale, Andrew Foster writes in the blog post.
