UK Real Estate on Google Maps


UK property website Rightmove have just added Google Maps to the detailed view page for each property listing. Over the next month they also plan to expand the use of Google Maps so that home-hunters will be able to see initial search results plotted on a map of their search area.

Rightmove claim they have now become one of the largest users of Google Maps in Europe. It is possible to search for properties on Rightmove by location, price and type of property. The map view shows the location of each property and gives the distance to the nearest train and underground stations.

One of the most useful features to be fair, but pretty much standard now and I reckon they could be left behind. allagents and I think zoopla are much more accurate when using the map -- rightmove just shows up with the post code, not the actual property, which can lead to confusion.
