Austin is one of the most beautiful cities to live in
Sarasota, FL (Vocus) September 4, 2007
The free online real estate search site PropertyMaps.com added Austin, the fourth largest city in Texas, to its growing national database of easily searchable MLS listings.
“Austin is one of the most beautiful cities to live in,” says John M. Beck, founder and President of PropertyMaps.com. “Now we’re making it easier than ever for people to search for Austin real estate.”
With a click of a mouse home shoppers for example can see everything about the 9 bedroom, 9 bath, 15,800 square foot mansion on sale for $13.5 million. They can also view the 4 bedroom, 3 bath home on the market for $559,000. For every home, not only are there multiple photos, but the web site plots the property on Google Maps, offers information about nearby schools, health clubs, hospitals and movie theatres and PropertyMaps.com even makes it possible to find out whether sexual offenders live in the neighborhood.
“Information that used to take many phone calls and visits to multiple web sites to find we’re making available in a single web site and that’s totally free,” says Beck.
PropertyMaps.com is building an easily searchable comprehensive real estate database that will eventually include all MLS listings nationwide.
There are 11,200 Austin real estate listings now available on PropertyMaps.com. Austin is among the fastest growing U.S. cities. It was selected by Money Magazine as the #2 Best Big City in the “Best Places to Live” category.
Using popular mapping tools such as Google Maps, Google Earth, and Microsoft Virtual Earth, PropertyMaps.com enables people to quickly search and easily visualize millions of real estate listings by plotting their locations and local market data free of charge. PropertyMaps.com is the first Internet site to provide map-based access to the authentic Multiple Listing Service (MLS) databases that are used by Realtors® nationwide.
PropertyMaps delivers the content wirelessly to Internet-enabled phones, PDAs, GPS-enabled and other mobile devices. Sarasota-based PropertyMaps, Inc has partnered with Silicon Valley’s Rockbridge Group for capital consulting and brokering services.
