Technology saves country real estate NOVA SCOTIA ????
BRIDGEWATER: There is a mad rush going on, to become Google savvy for Real Estate. Ever since our Streetviews got mapped on the coastal South Shore, we've all been able to save money and aggravation...
Now people can preview areas without getting lost or even buying gas! What this means for property buying, is that they can see a home the way it looked outside, back in the pretty month of June. They can also see if there is an unzoned car lot next door!!!
What this means for property selling, is that REALTOR(R)s can compare popular neighbourhoods virtually, in addition to Multiple Listing System photos and enthusiastic descriptions. After all, LOCATION LOCATION is most important.
For example, my local village of Pleasantville has starred in the following interactive portion of Google Maps:
If you scroll up and down the "Lighthouse Route" on the South Shore, (hwy 331 on my side of the river), you will see glimpses of the salt water Lahave River. It's actually a cove that leads to Bridgewater from the Atlantic ocean.
This sunny sailing strip of Nova Scotia real estate is one of the many things that makes the South Shore special. There are unspoiled beaches and hundreds of islands in the protective bays. And of course, Lighthouses.
While not everything is mapped (you'll still have to venture out in your kayak to visit the islands you can't reach by the Crescent Beach causeway), the waves seem so real on Google you can smell the fresh air.
Visit my Blog in the future to hear the sounds of lakes and ocean here on the South Shore. But for now, a home looking for a loving new owner is in the Google Maps tour above.

"Built when lumber was still milled dimensional and homes trussed onsite, this property is surrounded by well maintained homes and landscaped yards. There is a springfed community well and all owners have their own onsite septic systems."
A forward thinking concept taking hold in waterfront and even waterview real estate on the South Shore of Nova Scotia is dividing lots into 'condos'. Yes, you read me right! This allows more eco-friendly use of property into larger yards and combined septic beds.

So, can I catch you fishing nearby one day? It's OK if you only want to move here seasonally to Relax too.
Yours in fun and family homes,
