Google adds more real estate information to its maps

I haven’t tried it yet but according to Information Week, it is supposed to bring a little more competition to Zillow.com and the like. That sounds good. Zillow has been getting better and better, but competition should speed up that improvement.

    Chris: Better Zillow? Just the interface or are the Zillowestimtes better too?

      I think the estimates are getting better, Fly. Not always, so anyone would be nuts to use Zillow exclusively to price a home or decide how much to pay for one, but as a tool for a rough look at what’s available, not bad. But I say that based on only an occasional look – I rarely use it but clients tell me “well Zillow says” and the number they give usually strikes me as in the ballpark.
