Google announced today that it has integrated location-specific images from its Panoramio product with Street View.

For online real estate, this means a more visual property search experience — something I wrote about last week — is coming fast.

Buyers on sites that have implemented Street View can now not only “walk down the street” on which a home resides, but can get images of the surrounding area in the same view.

This is good for agents too, who spend less time and money when buyers can get well down the path to decision online rather than relying on the traditional backseat tour.
