Isn't technology great? If you combine Google Maps satellite view with "streetview" photos and IMapp data that your realtor could provide you, you can get a very good idea of what the house that you are interested looks like. You can also look at the whole street and get a very good idea of the street looks like. Because the "streetview" data is very recent, you can now have a much more accurate picture than a few months ago when some of the Google maps would plot a house in the wrong location.
I even have access to sometechnology that can give you 4 aerial pictures of the place where you live. One from each of the 4 cardinal points, i.e. ESWN. If you send me your address or the address of a property that you are interested in purchasing, I'll send them to you for free. No obligations. You just have to give me an e-mail address too. It's awesome. And if someone asks you how you got them, just tell them that you know someone who flies on a broom... LOL

If you would feel more comfortable with the actual MLS print out, we would be happy to email them to you so you can have the benefit of being certain this pictures are accurate representations of the property.
