Really Real Estate

Shopping for a house as market prices start to dip? Thinking about moving cross-country? Maybe you just love aerial photographs? Or have a secret voyeuristic side? If you raised an eyebrow and nodded yes to any of those questions, you have to have to check out Richard Barton's (he founded Expedia "“ sing it with me: "dot com") new site: Zillow.

For fun, just click on the Map & Search tab, pick a city, and start zooming in. Once you get into a neighborhood, click the "Hybrid" tab and start snooping around someone's property! It's fun, it's exhilarating, it's possibly illegal?

Apparently not. With 75 employees and $32 million invested, I doubt Mr. Barton is breaking any privacy laws here. For more info, check out Silicon Beat's article, and happy house peeping, er hunting.
