With Google as our mapping partner, we’re able to give you overhead views and street views for all the homes for sale on our site (and for sold homes too). Today, Google announced that it’s also making a new type of imagery available called perspective imagery, starting with San Jose and San Diego. Perspective imagery is “angled” overhead imagery giving you a view of not just the roof of a house but the sides as well.
We know there’s nothing more important than the photos of a house, so thanks to our engineers Jen, Navtej, Dan and Sasha for working with Google to add this to our details pages so quickly. You can now find this new imagery on all the homes in San Jose and San Diego in the Views section under Angled.
Here’s an example from a home we sold in San Diego:
As Google adds more imagery it will become available on Redfin.
Lastly, we’d like to send a big thank you to the folks at Google (specifically Mike, Manish, Mano, and Mickey) for letting us participate in this launch and helping us get it up and running. We hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we do.
