Search for flats in Switzerland
December 19, 2005 4:20 AM   Subscribe

Looking for a flat in Switzerland? Yes, yet more ajax-y, web2.0 stuff, with satellite maps. This site crawls a number of swiss realty sites, and displays the available flats on a dynamic, zoomable map, according to your search criteria.

Hmm, I like the 'normal' map.search.ch site a lot and use it quite often, but this seems to be a bit flimsy on IE6. Also if I search for example for the 8050 zipcode it still wants to show me everything from Schwammendingen until the Z├╝richsee.

But it does give a good oversight of the houses on the map, I wonder if they have a agreement with homegate.ch or are just scraping their site?

This works great in Firefox 1.5. I really like the slider controls for things like Price and Rooms. The background of the slider is a histogram of offers! These guys are innovative; map.search.ch is the best online map for Switzerland. Unless I misremember, it was doing the Ajaxy "scroll by dragging map" thing before Google Maps launched.

NGnerd: here's a real estate / Google Maps thing for Washington DC. I don't know how good their real estate data is, but it looks useful.

it uses craigslist apartment listings data, pretty useful, but not 100% completely complete...

We've got this in Seattle. I love it for compulsive real-estate window shopping.
