There should be an image here!One might not think it to be such a grand idea for Google to get into the real estate business at this point. However, considering it is merely offering listings for houses available at its maps site, it actually makes a lot of sense.

I don’t have to tell most of you out there that this move does wonders to boost the visual perspective for any featured real estate. And at the same time, I doubt that any real estate agents are struggling too hard with it either.

Adding further value to this is the option that Google users can also search for things nearby — such as grocery shopping, schools, parks, etc. This alone makes the real estate offering from Google a very big deal in a seriously wounded marketplace.
