A new interactive on-line map launched by Daft.ie is to offer property purchasers the chance to find out exactly where a house is in Galway.
Daft.ie recently launched the new mapping service, which allows broadband users to find houses for sale in Galway and throughout Ireland.
Visitors to the site can drag a map of Ireland around the screen, zoom in to any town and see the property for sale on a particular street. At present, all the major urban centres are mapped with a total of 17,000 homes listed.
Brian Fallon, Director of Daft.ie said, “Our goal is to get every single property for sale in Ireland onto this map. We’ve been working hard for this launch and we now have 50 per cent more homes listed than our nearest competitor. Many of these homes have never been advertised online before, so finding a bargain has just become that bit easier.”
The service pulls in geographic data from An Post and ties it into Google’s mapping service to display each house for sale as a small blue icon on the map. When a visitor clicks on a house, the price, the number of bedrooms and a small photo appear beside it. House price data for particular streets and neighbourhoods will be added shortly so that the price of each house can be referenced to recent sales.
