Google Real Estate

Paul Rademacher combined Craigslist and Google maps to create something I might call Google Real Estate: houses listing mapped over Google Maps. (via CFD)

With user friendly side of Google Map, it is simple, fast, effective. (Kind of RedFin but on a national range and without satellite stills).

One small step for Paul, one giant leap for Googlekind...

The real estate sector does live on information friction ("where are the best house in town? - ask your agent"). Definitively, this will have to change. With such a tool, why having an agent?

Google should develop such a tool as soon as it can. Billion dollars are the reward. Google will offer inscription for a small fee in order to lists your building, house, or apartment.

"Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful."

This time it might pay back big time...

Savan, your tool is quite great too (check my rants earlier this winter).

But I guest, here, despite your technology advance, you'll have to fight a Goliath on your market if Google wants to venture that way ;-)
