Pretty cool.... except the home value it lists!

My trailer wasn't in the Washington photo and if in the Fresno one, is parked in the garage. Want to see a picture of the top of my garage?

Mine does come up with the trailer in the yard on Google Earth, I think. But not quite so closeup.

The Zillow photograph of my property is about 3 or 4 years old, and does not show the Fiber Stream on the patio in the back yard.
The current Google Earth photograph is only 1 year old and DOES show it.

The Google Earth photo was taken on a weekday, since I can find my Honda Odyssey in the parking lot at work, and not at home.

I'm not so enamored with the technology. Privacy issues, spying by local officials for code compliance, etc. give me pause for concern.

Very interesting. Arial and street view were taken months apart.

And I totally agree Steve.

Doug, I just heard on the news yesterday that they will be doing Calgary soon, I would bet that they will start with the major centers first, then make it through the rest of Canada.

Do they do everywhere, or just larger cities/towns in the US?

The info isn't correct on ours. They say we have 2 bd 1 ba. In fact we have 3 bd (4 if we give up the den) and 2 ba.

Careful, most of the information that zillow.com uses comes from public records. In other words, your house may have originally had 2 bedrooms and 1 bath but the other rooms may have been added without obtaining a permit, which usually triggers a reassessment. If the remodel surfaces in an untimely way there could be penalties involved in addition to back taxes.

The original house was 2/1 but 900 sq. ft. A second story added 2/1 in 1981 and 1100 sq. ft. They have the correct sq. footage posted.

We bought the house after the addition and have done nothing substantial to it since...and it's paid off.

I like the price they claim it's worth, but I bet it ain't!

I'm just glad I've always lived far enough from popular cities that they haven't shown my residences. Ugh, what a breach of privacy!

You might find more up-to-date pictures on Google maps. You may have already heard about this, but check to see if Google has done "Street View" for your neighborhood yet. It's pretty cool. Of course, we're biased, because our son works for them. Here's the link to enter your address:


Click image for larger version

Name:	Our_Home.JPG
Views:	34

http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&tab=wl

Click on "Satellite" in the upper righthand corner. That shows the aerial photo. See if your address has a "balloon" pop up where where you can click on "Street View." Then you should see a shot of your house as though you are looking at it from the street. Click and drag around the little arrows and bubbles to "drive around" your neighborhood.

Google Earth also lets you look at aerial photos over the years. It's interesting to see how our trailers have changed over the years and when our new garage suddenly appeared.
