Google Maps Getting Out of Real Estate Search Business

Google Maps Real Estate SearchGoogle announced they are “retiring” their Google Real Estate Search feature, which was launched back in July 2009.

Google said the service will go offline on February 10, 2011. They cite the reason for killing off this search service is partly due to “low usage.” But we knew that, we thought Google would save the real estate market – oh well.

I guess companies like Zillow and their competitors can now relax a bit. Google has decided to give up competing on real estate search and let the smaller search companies have it. I for one am happy for them.
