Google Maps “Street View”
I just found a great new way to save gas. I use Google Maps all the time to find a location of a house that I may be looking into but I still needed to get in my car to see what the house and street look like. No more! In my area “Street View” shows me a stitched view of most streets and most houses. Here is an example of street view for one of my listings. You can view the location and then click and move on the photo of the street and the house.
The best part of the tool is that you can move down the street by using arrows that look like they are on the street and then at any point, you can do a 360 degree pan and see what the street looks like in all directions. Very Cool, check it out for yourself at http://www.maps.google.com.
