Searching Las Vegas Real Estate Using Google Maps

We’ve been sniffing around the residential real estate market lately.  With homes being sold for discounts of 50% from their high (we’re seeing million-dollar homes going for $500k), we wanted to see if it makes sense for us to make a move.

Although I’m very very impressed with realtor.com’s search functions (it does what those ‘sign-up-to-get-your-search-info’ sites do for free), I stumbled upon a cool feature in Google Maps.

GoogleRealEstate Under the MORE tab (found on the upper-right of the map), select “Real Estate…”.  Instantly, all homes for sale in your area pops up on the map.  Additionally, the column to the left of the map presents some simple criteria for the search (Listing type, # of bedrooms, # of bathrooms, square footage).  After narrowing the search, you get a clearer look into what’s happening in your area. 

When you click on one of the teardrop thingies, the property info comes up with a link to the website with the property’s details.

Pretty cool stuff.
