Thanks to my friend Avi from Promediacorp who alerted me to this immediately.
Google has silently released: Google Real Estate. I don’t know if that is the official name, but that’s what I’m calling it until I hear otherwise. When you do a search query for “real estate”, “homes for sale” , or “apartments for rent” a new option appears. See below screenshot:
As you can see, you can further refine your search by location, listing type, Distance, relevance, most recent post date, oldest post date, Price, bedrooms, and bathrooms.
The next screenshot displays a thumbnail of a photo of each property and a description. The Google Local map is on the right side of the page.
When you click on the pushpin, another photo & description pops up on the Google Map.
