I don’t remember anyone posting about this but it seems that google is playing in the realestate market. I was doing a quick google search and ran across a tool bar in my reuslts that allowed me to specify a location as well as criteria for properties that I am interested in. It seems that this service is pulling listing from at least one of the local MLS services as I see a lot of the same properites that I would see on an site like Realtor.com. Also through the use of Google Base I can add my own listing if I am a realestate professional. One last nice thing that I can do is create and RSS feed of my realestate listing search so that I can monitor new properties through my favorte RSS reader. All this coupled with google maps makes this a nice (although still not perfect) way to use the internet to search for realestate. I think that sites like Realtor.com should be worried.
