Cool Web Sites: Housingmaps.com

We all love Craigslist, but digging through the site's real-estate listings can be time-consuming and frustrating—the description says “close to Metro,” but when you click through you realize it’s actually “a short three-mile bike ride to the Metro.” Not exactly what you had in mind.

Housingmaps.com may have the answer. A Craigslist-Google Maps combo site, it takes all the housing listings in Craigslist and superimposes them onto Google Maps. You can zoom as close in on a neighborhood or street as you want and customize a search by price range and type, such as rentals, sublets, or real estate for sale. Clicking on a listing brings up a description complete with photos.    

Happy hunting!
