Google StreetView for Real Estate Agents

Real Estate Agent with Real Estate Advocate

Real Estate Advocate and Google StreetView

The Real Estate Advocate found this great tool for a quick virtual drive by of a target property.

Google Street View provides street level picture to supplement their map information. It's a great way to get a panoramic view of a property and the surrounding area.

Welcome to Active Rain. That's a great tip. I'm a notary public so I spend a lot of time traveling to homes. Some houses don't have numbers on them. This will be a great way to see what I'm looking for before I head out.

Welcome to ActiveRain, Ross! I've been impressed with what I've seen from Google StreetVew so far. Now it's just a matter of me finding the time to build some custom maps for neighborhoods and places of interest in the Las Vegas valley.
