Wow your customers with bird's eye views

Don't miss a great write-up on aerial Web sites in the February Realtor Magazine. The short article summarizes some of the great aerial photography available online today, and how smart real estate agents can take advantage of these tools to showcase their listings and wow their customers.

The entire article is worth reading, but this passage I found particularly important:

"To remain competitive in the market, real estate agents must satisfy consumers' growing need to locate the most comprehensive information available. The implementation of aerial real estate mapping services in conjunction with online listings enables the real estate agent to not only show a property, but to show a complete visual picture of surrounding areas and attractions to consumers -- all in the comfort of their own homes. Mapping sites can be another marketing tool for real estate professionals. and similar services offer options for real estate agents and brokers to showcase their own services."
