Google Maps + Craigslist = Fun Real Estate Browsing Tool

What do you get when you combine the real estate listings on Craigslist and cross-reference them on Google Maps? HousingMaps.com. Only for major metro areas, but it’s still a neat tool.

Craigslist seems to have much more extensive listings for rentals than houses for sale, but more and more real estate agents are putting some of their listings to join the For Sale By Owner crowd. A friend of mine just bought a FSBO house off of Craigslist, and I’m told he got a good deal. Mostly it’s just another way to waste time browsing properties I can’t afford, but who knows, you may get lucky too.

  1. I just tried it – it does not show all the adds in the area – do you know if there’s anything specific to link craigslist to google maps ?

  2. We have our house for sale on CraigsList, but it did not generate any traffic yet… We are in Orlando Area and offering a really good deal… We are very motivated to sell because we are moving to new and bigger home.

    Any ideas were else can we list it?

    This site is better — it gets more listings than HousingMaps and is easier to use.
