Users can find listings for rent and sale from many of the major real estate franchise groups including Ray White, LJ Hooker, First National, Harcourts and Raine & Horne.
In addition, the Google Map will show more information about an area as you pan around and zoom in. There are small icons on the map showing the names and location of businesses and prominent features of the neighbourhood.
Finally, Google has added a function that will make it easy to layer searches over each other.
“If you’re looking for a new place near a primary school, start by searching for “primary school”. Then click More, Real Estate to see all available properties nearby overlaid on the same map. Refine your search, and find that perfect 3 bedroom apartment in walking distance of a school,” says the company.
