Australian Real Estate Search Engine for Google Earth and Google Maps

Suburb View

Mark says:

When I realised that looking for my first home what a time consuming process it involved, I thought there had to be a better way.

With the introduction of Google Earth, looking at houses with a birds eye view, there was no current way of finding what houses were for sale, and more importantly how much they cost.

The site was launched in early August and I believe this was the first Australian site using Google Earth to display Property Listings. It slowly morphed to use Google Maps where the visual look and feel of results is the same on the Google Map vs viewing in Google Earth.

its a useful website. it would be cooler if when you click on the available places the pop-up includes a picture of the interior or outside of the unit (i could’ve sworn i’ve seen that done somewhere on a real estate website before). but at least it points you to the appropriate pages on or etc. all in all a good implementation of google maps + australian real estate websites.

to use, just click on the “view on map: Rent” or “sale” on the right of the map. it’ll show the available units. i suggest using a “hybrid” street-satellite view for maximum benefit.

this will definately come in handy when i find a new place to stay at the end of the year.

    Its a good idea but I’d still rather use as it allows you to search via price and also plot recently sold properties.
