    Big Brother Home Valuation.

    Type in the address of your home and you get a satellite image of it, the year the house was built, how much it's worth, etc. It didn't work for me, but I was curious if the site worked for others. It would be kinda neat and big brotherish if it works.

    I tried it using a friends address down in Georgia and it worked well - could even see their swimming pool in the back yard !
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    When you require nothing, you get nothing; when you expect nothing, you will find nothing; when you embrace nothing, all you will have is nothing.

    I tried several of my friends and families homes, but was only able to get the street on there. No homes, or values..

    This works for my community in Colorado and where my parents live in the Twin Cities. But, this isn't anything new, really. The property stats and info are classified as public information and available through your county tax assessor. The zillow site is probably just able to access those counties that have their records online. My guess is that the zillow site is not displaying all of the available information. The county tax records are surprisingly complete and include things like name of owner, year built, foundation size, # of bathrooms, price of house when it last changed owners, all in addition to what the zillow site displays. The government still has cornered the market on being big brother.

    I think you have to be in a pretty big metro area for this to work; they don't have anything for northern Idaho.

    They're using Google Earth to get the pictures. If you haven't used this program before, I highly recommend downloading it. I use it for my job all the time and for scouting out hunting spots. It's kind of fun to fly around on it too :lol: . Some areas definitely have better coverage than others, so move around the country and check out a variety of landscapes.

    Caution, Google Earth is highly addictive.
