Google and Craigslist Mashup

Google and Craigslist Mashup: Talk about cool code. If you have not seen this before and are into programming or business, this is definitely worth a clickthrough. Programmers never cease to amaze me, ever! Paul Rademacher has taken Google maps to a whole new level. Use the above link to look for property for sale and rent in the major cities from Craigslist. I don’t know for sure if Paul realizes the potential of his development but I know of quite a few local and national realtors who would be chomping at the bit to be able to use this technology to show off their listed properties.

Think of the possibilities. Imagine combining the power of the relatively open MLS database with the combination of Google map overlays with nice thumbnails of each property accessible through the map and you have a realty powerhouse that can and will draw millions in revenue and advertising dollars and I am underestimating when I say millions. I just wish I had the ability to build on some of these business opportunities!

    A similar sort of mashup at – here blogs with location data are being imported rather than houses. It starts by default in the UK, but you can scroll across the pond and see US blogs too.
