Redfin Map Announcement
Redfin is live with a new mapping platform (Microsoft’s Virtual Earth), a new legend (listings in green, viewed listings in light green, and recently sold properties in blue), and expanded Bay Area coverage (“Napa, Sonoma, Santa Cruz & more Solano”).
It’s a great complement to their recent upgrade of property listing details. And it’s a smart move to let Microsoft worry about mapping technology (Redfin’s previous technology was homegrown), and let Redfin focus on real estate.
UPDATE: According to Redfin’s press release, they plan to leverage Microsoft’s Virtual Earth “to offer bird’s-eye views of neighborhoods, driving directions, mobile telephone integration and more neighborhood information about local attractions and retail shops.” And an “online agent chat” feature is live as well.

    RedFin, like Zip: You get what you pay for. Ever wonder where agents go when they get cut from Prudential?
