Street view for house hunting

You can’t really use street view for house hunting but it can be a big help. Maybe you just saw a house on the internet that you would like to look at. I always encourage people to drive by and check the house out before making an appointment to see it.

Google Street view makes it possible to do the drive by or the walk by over the internet. Go to Google maps, type in the address and the drag the little yellow man onto the screen. Here is a link to the instructions. This can be a great way to weed out houses if you don’t want to live right on a freeway exit ramp or next to a power station. I have worked with buyers who would rather not live anywhere a cemetery. You can definitely see nearby cemeteries on street vew.
