Buyers can very easily read the MLS entry about a house or several in any given neighborhood. And these days real estate agents know they need to include lots of photos.
But most often the pictures on show the property itself and nothing else.
For example, lets say one was moving to Brevard County, Florida and was interested in homes along the Indian River like the Rockledge Drive area in Rockledge. This is probably one of the most scenic routes along the Indian River in Brevard County.
The Rockledge Drive area has some very large, extremely very nice homes with many having private docks. There are homes for sale ranging from $325,000 (in the gated River Ridge community) to $1,490,000.
Some homes were built in the early 1900s while some within the past five years. Sizes range from about 3,000 sq.ft. to 7,000 sq.ft. with five bedrooms and four baths.
Here are a few snapshots from the Google Maps web site showing various points along Rockledge Drive.
It may not the same as being there but it does allow you to have some idea about the general area before you make that house hunting trip! Google Maps also allows you to see traffic patterns, bike paths and other information. Use it!
