Google Combines Search and Real Estate

What would you get if you combine web search and real estate listings? Well, there’s not a real name for this feature but Google is nonetheless rolling it out, direct from the labs of Google’s Australia office.  This new feature  lets you search for “real estate” properties as it appears on Google Maps.

Isn’t it great that when you’re trying to look for a real estate property, you  can actually see where it is located as well as the surrounding areas via Google Maps? the idea is to make it easier for you to find specific locations and some degree of accuracy when searching for real estate property via Google Maps. If you want this feature in action, check these sample searches given by Google Australia – “homes for sale sydney” or “homes for rent near Perth among other search queries.

Aside from this feature, Google has also integrated real estate listing and hosted in on Place Pages. This gives  Google users a day of rest, away from everything.

  1. LOL… As if the Real Estate industry wasn’t competitive already. I wonder how G plans to set up the bidding on those listing positions. You can wager it will be similar to PPC, I reckon.

  2. Also, Google is looking to buy a couple dedicated real estate search engines and combine the results with it's Google maps feature. This way, everyone will be able to see the location and the neighbourhood of any real estate property without having to travel to it. It's a very useful and convenient service.
