Google Street View

Received an alert from Expert Agent (our estate agency management software) to say that Google Street View is now 'live'. I spent a while today locating properties and 'fixing' the initial view. Unfortunately 100% of the area has not been photographed but a very good proportion which will give likely buyers the opportunity to view the surrounding area  before jumping in their cars to come and view. Downside is it may reduce viewings for some properties but at least it will save wasting time, petrol and energy on visits that were never going to turn into anything more than a 'social' exercise!
