GMaps shows for sale now

Google Maps was an Australian IT invention, just over two years ago.

It's way more a map tool, but you can find a local plumber or chemist; Councillors can get driving directions to a friend's place at Trinity Park; check out a restaurant in Port Douglas on the weekend before making a booking with Street View.

You can even view terrain and satellite data and travel using public transport in some cities in Australia. The Sydney maps now have Monorail and Light Rail.

Now you can search for properties for sale or rent on Google Maps. You can check it out by entering a search like 'real estate White Rock' and clicking through to search real estate listings.
