Find Local

Google and Real Estate

I use Google to find everything from handbags to former high-school classmates. But until I stumbled on a Google feature called Base, I didn’t know it could help me find a house.

Base organizes user-generated content—from recipes to research papers to store inventories—in easy-to-search databases. The “housing” section is a collection of homes and properties for sale, rent, or sublet. You can search by Zip code, price, number of bedrooms or bathrooms, listing type (for rent, for sale, or sublet), and property type (condo, co-op, single family, or land). The results are displayed alongside a Google map, making it easy to zoom in on particular neighborhoods. And each listing offers photos.

Happy hunting!
