Friday Aug 31st, 2018
If you're looking online for homes one of the best tools you can use is Google Maps. With Google Maps, you can look at the address and if you haven’t been to see the home in person, you can do an aerial view, a satellite view and neighborhood view and see things around it that you may not be aware of and save time in your carbon footprint.
With Google Maps, you won’t have to drive out to see your prospective home and notice that there's a huge transmission line in your backyard You also get to see the proximity of what the neighbours’ homes look like and see the house from the outside.
Google Maps also allows you to look at commute times to get to work. You can specify if you are driving or taking public transportation and start time or send time. Wonderful tool when you're looking and something a lot of people overlook.
