Google Street View

This is probably old news to most of you, but if you don’t already know about Google’s new Street View feature on Google Maps you’re missing out on a valuable tool. This new feature actually allows you to see photos taken from virtually every street in a densely populated area. You can even zoom in and pan up and down streets. It’s pretty amazing.

So what does this have to do with investment real estate? Simply that it can be a time saver. You can now preview any block (I think) in South St. Louis from this site. Many times when I take a client to see a building, they decide by simply driving down the block whether they are interested or not. Now you can get a least of symbolance of this from your computer. Even if you would never use it for that purpose, its still fun to play with. Check it out for yourself.
