Google Real Estate

It looks like Google Real Estate has arrived.

If you type "homes for sale" or "real estate" into Google's search box, you're now presented with a new option. You can now refine the search based on location or listing type. (Bottom of screen shot)

I searched for Berkeley and grabbed this screen shot.

It looks like a bare bones Google Maps + Google Base mashup. If you click on the pushpin, the listing summary pops up on the map. However, the map seems a bit small and I had to do some shifting in order to position the property info bubble so that I could read it.

Not perfect by any means, but it HAS arrived.
