Trulia Adds Google Earth for Real Estate Searches
Trulia is a real estate listing service which believes that "...information about properties, local neighborhoods, agents and brokers should be made freely available to everyone". When performing searches you get an integrated Google Maps map of the results, and they provide many useful tools such as heat maps on pricing. Yesterday they announced on their blog support for Google Earth in their search results. This means you can choose to view the results of your search as a collection of placemarks. For example, here's a look at homes in Clear Lake, Texas . The placemarks have the basic information such as photo of the property, price, address, number of bedrooms, and of course a link to more information.
To realize the true value of using Google Earth for real estate, you need to check out the layers in Google Earth. The layers are often overlooked - I guess because there are so many of them. When you are looking to buy a house in a new location, you need to know things like where are the nearest schools, whether a grocery store is close by, what the drive is like to work, how far it is to the airport. As you explore the layers and use the GE ruler or driving directions, you can get answers to all of these questions and more. The data in these layers varies in quantity depending on what country you live in, but Google has been continually adding this information all over the world.
