Danish Real-Estate on Google Maps
Boligmap.dk is a Danish real-estate website that uses the Google Maps API to help users search for properties.
One cool feature of Boligmap is the use of a static Street View image of the property when you open an information window. If you click through to the property details an interactive Street View image of the property can be navigated to learn more about the property's immediate neighbourhood.
Another interesting approach to real-estate mapping by Boligmap is the use of town and neighbourhood polygon boundaries. I suspect that many home hunters do search by neighbourhood so being able to quickly click on a neighbourhood's polygon and view all the properties available is pretty useful.
