BBC news - Google to offer property listings - How will this effect property in Languedoc?

Yesterday BBC News reported that Google, probably the best known internet search engine in the world is going to launch a "Property dimension" to it's UK mapping system.

The system will allow both Estate Agents and private individuals to list properties for free that will be shown as an overlay on google's maps.

Apparently there have been mixed responses over this, with shares in property portal "Right Move" falling by 10% at the announcement.

I'm not sure when this will come to France but am certain that it will. The question is, how will this affect property in Languedoc, property in Herault and of course property for sale in France as a whole.

I can see it as a good move although suppose that there must be some kind of filtering system that will be put in place otherwise google maps could get very crowded very quickly. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

In the meantime, if you're looking for property to buy in Languedoc or property to buy in Herault then call us on 00 33 467 00 11 71 or 020 7913 9341 from the UK to discuss your requirements.
