Zillow, the real estate portal I wrote about several weeks ago, has added birds-eye aerial photography from Microsoft's Virtual Earth to complement its maps and own satellite images of U.S. neighborhoods (here's an example). The images are available for a few dozen cities with more to come.
From the Zillow blog:
It's easy to imagine the clarity these images add for a home buyer curious about a property's architecture, yard or neighboring homes. Personally I like looking at my neighborhood the most. Not only is this a perspective I've never seen (even though I've lived in the same neighborhood my whole life), it allows me to do "Sunday afternoon strolls" looking at nearby houses whenever I want. In the side-by-side view, I get the Zestimate and home details on the traditional Zillow satellite map right next to the bird's eye view.
