Showing Property to Buyers - Use Google Maps FASTEST Roundtrip Solver - It is one of the Google Map features - but it is FAST!
I just discovered this - compliments of John Occhi who I just met on LinkedIN.
From Virtuoo : Stuff for Realtors - Google Map Fastest Roundtrip Solver
Input up to 10 addresses - just the street address + zip code.
The first address that you input is the start and end.
I can’t imagine showing more than 10 properties at one appointment, but if you do….
After you submit and get your map and directions, you can add more.
Then print it -
Take it with you - use it to show your buyer where the property is located.
Give it to your buyer - keeps them focused on the property location.
Save it for later - if you are doing your homework ahead of time and don’t have your printer handy.
Email it to your buyer -
This is really good if you want to give an out of town buyer a preview of where you taking them.
Use it for a drive-by tour -
Sometimes I email some MLS listings - input the addresses and send this map with it.
Add a link to Walkscore.com and you can familiarize your out-of-town buyer with the area.
Be sure to let your clients know that Walkscore mileage seems to be as the crow flies.
Save it for a dated reference for your self - what did I show them?
I don’t need this in Mesquite to find the homes I am showing - Mesquite is small - but it is handy to show the buyer where we are in the their tour of homes that I have selected.
