Google UK quietly lanches property search

David Boyd, Managing Director, PAD4U Letting Agents Manchester writes:

The rumours were rife a couple of months ago but died down recently. Often Google annonce things that never seem to happen or certainly not quickly.  But a quick look on Google Maps shows that you can now search for properties using Google rather than portals such as Rightmove, FindaProperty, etc.  Properties appear as dots on the map and you can narrow down your search by price, bedrooms, and bathrooms.   Portals often have more choice in terms of property attributes, but it is nice to be able to see exactly where  a property is. 

PAD4U properties are already listed on Google Maps via Zoomf.com.  Google has launched with a number of Portals submitting feeds to Google Maps.

It will be interesting to see how it catches on.
