Foreclosures on Google Maps


From Legal Blog Watch:


Via Consumerist I learned... that you can see foreclosure sales in your home town and all over the U.S. through Google Maps. Who knew? Here's how it works:

1. Enter a town or city name into Google Maps.

2. Go to the "More" drop-down box at the top of the map and select the "Real Estate" box.

3. All homes for sale will appear, but then go to the options menu on the left and select "Foreclosure" (and deselect "For Sale").

All homes for sale as foreclosures should now appear as red dots.

Mouse-over the dot to get address information, and click on any dot to get photos and much more.


Up top is a screenshot from yesterday of foreclosures in the continental U.S.

oops found it, it's the "more" menu in the map box itself, not at the top of the page. Cool.

couldn't find "real estate" under the "more" menu. What did I do wrong?
