New Zealand Real Estate soon to have Google Street View

Posted by Steve Koerber on August 28, 2008

Thanks to Alistair Helm of www.realestate.co.nz for the heads up on this important news.  Google Street view is finally available in Australia and the real estate website Domain is the first in Australia to have it. 

Check out your friends or relatives houses or buildings in Australia here

I grew up in Canberra and this is the house I lived in until the age of 13.  It still looks the same as the day I left it except that my father was obviously a keener gardener than the (second) current owner. 

Between 13 and 14 I lived here, and when I was 18 years old I commenced training to become a Naval Officer here.  I guess security prevented the Google team from driving around the Naval Base so all they show is the gangway (entry gate).  In the late 1980s I lived in the apartment building at the left hand side of this view, and just before my wife and I moved to NZ in 1995 this is where we lived for 2 years.

In 2003 we bought a section in Cairns Queensland with the intention to someday move back there.  We built this home in the hills behind Cairns and planned to move at the end of 2006.  The building process was a great learning experience, but slow, and we had time to have second thoughts about such a lifestyle change.  We sold it in November 2007 just after it was completed (late) and you’ll see the sold sticker on the real estate sign in this picture.  We weren’t that happy with the price I achieved but that’s probably because Barfoot & Thompson don’t sell there!

Can’t wait for Google Maps to be available in NZ, should be here soon!
