Google’s new property search helps put your home on the map

Spicerhaart is one of the first estate agencies to sign up to Google’s new property search feature on Google Maps, giving customers a wealth of options when it comes to marketing their property online.

Viewers can search a local area using Google Maps, pinpoint the exact location of a property for sale with us and see what features are offered.

They can search on property price, whether it is for sale or rent, how many bedrooms and bathrooms it has, and whether it is detached, a semi or townhouse/unit.

By being one of the first to partner with Google’s property search, we can offer our customers so much more. Not only do they benefit from exposure on all the existing main property portals to which we subscribe, their properties will be seen by so many more people who search on Google.

As the most popular search engine in the UK, it will be so easy for people to pick the location where they want to live, then see the wealth of properties on offer in that area.

Andrew Foster, product manager for Google, says: "We know that many UK home buyers are already using Google Maps to help with their house-buying and renting decisions, especially driving directions and Street View. By making property listings available in Google Maps we can drive qualified buyers directly to listings.

"It's a simple and free way for property companies to make their listings even more discoverable, and have them seen on an easy-to-navigate map."
