This was never a popular feature of Maps, however it is a bit of a surprise that they will kill it completely in 2 weeks. I know a few businesses who benefited from it.
Google Maps will drop its real estate listings search option on February 10th.
Real estate was one of the options available inside Google Maps since July 2009, when it added a similar search form like the ones available on many real estate-specific websites. Google’s real estate search wasn’t as advanced as some of those sites, but offered enough basics for most homebuyers to start the process of finding a new home.
