Google Eliminates Real Estate Listings

Author: admin - Categories: Real Estate Marketing

The search engine icon, Google announced that they will no longer support real estate listings uploaded to its classifed listings site on Google Maps, the company announced today.  Clearly Google sees the value in other real estate and mortgage lead generation companies and that had to play a role in their decision to pull back their real estate listings.

Consumers will no longer be able to find for-sale, foreclosure, or rental properties through the search function on Google Maps, and real estate professionals will no longer be able to upload their listings to Google Base, the company’s classifieds site, which is being replaced by Google Shopping APIs and will not support real estate listings. “In part due to low usage, the proliferation of excellent property-search tools on real estate websites, and the infrastructure challenge posed by the impending retirement of the Google Base API, we’ve decided to discontinue the real estate feature within Google Maps on February 10, 2011,” the company said in a blog post.

Home seekers can still use “Google search results to find helpful real estate information and websites” as well as view local businesses, directions and transit times through Google Maps and explore neighborhoods through Google Street View, the company added.
