Hoping to rock the waves in the real estate listings arena, Google has expanded its own property listings, buttressing them with extra search functionality for locating property listings on Google Maps.
A search for “seattle real estate,” for example, still features listings of real estate agents and brokers on a map. But below the search box — and a souped-up search tool — is a just-added invitation to search current listings
Users have the option to search by bedrooms and baths, price range, square footage and foreclosures. Listings appear much the same way business listings do: click on a red icon for more information about a home, get directions, save the listing to My Maps, or send the data to someone else via email, phone, car or GPS.
