Today, home buyers have so much information at their finger tips which can often enhance or even shorten their house hunting process.  Many of my clients come from out of the area and they want to know all about the neighbourhood and area before hopping in their car.

A simple place to start is with Bing maps.  They have a feature called Bird’s Eye view but it doesn’t seem to work well in our area yet but, their mapping is not bad. I’m using an example here of Charlie’s Variety – A Collingwood institution located at 181 Birch St.  Here, you can see where in the town the store is located.

Next, Simcoe  http://maps.simcoe.ca/Geocortex/Essentials/Web/viewer.aspx?Site=Public County has an interactive mapping programs with all sorts of features to explore. Grey County has one as well.  http://maps.grey.ca/flex/  A simple project is to enter the address and see an overhead view of the property like this one for Charlie’s:

Next, Google has an amazing program called Street View where you can virtually drive the neighbourhood by scrolling up, down and around the street.

I’ll bet you are going to go search for your own home now, right?  Have fun!
