Lake & City Homes adds Microsoft’s Bird’s Eye ViewPosted by Jolenta Averill, Broker on Monday, September 21st, 2009 at 10:21pm.
Lake & City Homes is proud to announce (albeit belatedly) that we've added some wonderful new functionality to our Property Details page: Microsoft Bird's Eye View. Microsoft Birds Eye View is a terrific tool that provides an aerial (or "bird's eye") view of any property for sale in the South Central WI MLS. Take my newest listing located at 5209 Burnett Drive in Madison, for example. Microsoft Bird's Eye View shows you where properties are situated in relation to each other, in relation to streets and avenues, and gives you an aerial overview of the density of trees and other greenery in any given area. You also have the ability to zoom in and out.
Microsoft Bird's Eye View is an especially good tool for looking at Madison lakefront homes or real estate for sale in golf course communities. It's also terrific for checking out how far a home is located from neighborhood parks, pools, schools, and shops. One thing to remember is that Microsoft Bird's Eye View uses historical photos that may not reflect a large addition someone has put on their home since that particular aerial shot was last taken. Similarly, if a home was built on a lot since the last time an aerial photo was taken, those changes may or may not be reflected as well.
Search for Madison homes by map and see Microsoft Bird's Eye View in action for yourself. Then let us know what you think. We'd love to hear your viewpoint!
