We know that when home buyers and sellers search for real estate online, they want to see as many listing photos and maps as they can to get a realistic view of each property and the surrounding neighborhood. With that in mind, we’re thrilled to be one of three companies providing users with a new aerial perspective by integrating Google’s new API with high-resolution overhead imagery.
