How To Obtain A Street View Of A Property Using Google Maps

In many instances there may be a need to obtain street view shots of specific properties for either reference or marketing purposes on listings.  

One way to obtain street views of property or even create short video presentations of properties being sold can be achieved by using Google Maps.com and executing the following instructions.

Note: The following instructions work successfully on standard computer equipment such as desk top and lap top computers and may operate a bit differently using Chrome Books and/or Mac hardware.

Step 1) Access Google Maps To Enter Property Address Or Location

Access Google Maps by entering – ‘https://www.google.com/maps’  in the address bar of any browser. 

Once Google Maps has been accessed successfully a screen similar to the following will be displayed as shown:

Step 2) Enter Property Address, Latitude/ Longitude Coordinates Or Location Information

Either of the following types of search criteria can be entered into Google Maps to locate a specific property for display:

      • Property Address: Example – 1911 Xelda Avenue North, Lehigh Acres, FL
      • Latitude/ Longitude Coordinates: Example – 26.632217, -81.696555
      • Location: Example – Grand Canyon National Park Arizona

For this illustration we will use a specific Property Address.  Enter the Property Address in the ‘Search Google Maps’ box as shown:

Note: If a valid Property Address, Latitude/ Longitude Coordinates or Location is entered, Google Maps will process the entry immediately and migrate to that specific location. This will be noted by the RED Balloon highlighting the specific address found by Google Maps.

Step 2) Select The Satellite Display Of The Entry

Select the Satellite version display of the specific address, latitude/ longitude coordinates or location as shown:

Once the Satellite view of the specific address or location is displayed, the RED Balloon will still be seen highlighting the specific address or location as shown: 

Step 3) Zoom In On Image And Select ‘Google Man’ For Street View

It is often necessary to ‘Zoom In‘ on the Satellite view in order to successfully see the street view of property prior to selecting the ‘Google Man’.  Use the ‘Zoom In‘ / ‘Zoom Out‘ feature as shown:

Once zoomed in, select the ‘Google Man‘ by left-clicking and dragging to the specific location to start the Street View display as shown:

Step 4) Drag And Drop ‘Google Man’ At Location For Street View

Drag and drop the ‘Google Man’ to the specific location where you wish to obtain the street view. Left-click and drag the ‘Google Man’ to the specific location and simply release the left-click to DROP the ‘Google Man’! 

Important #1:  After selecting, (left-clicking) and dragging the ‘Google Man’, if the streets at or near the address and/or latitude / longitude locations DO NOT turn blue, this indicates that a Google Car has never driven down that street; therefore, NO street views can be obtained!

Important #2: After selecting, (left-clicking) and dragging the ‘Google Man’, if the streets turn blue; but, after releasing the ‘Google Man’ the image does NOT successfully show the street view, you may need to ‘Zoom In’ a bit closer to actually show the street view!

A street view can be successfully obtained if you see an image similar to the following:

Step 5) Once Street View Is Shown Move Around The Immediate Area

The Street View should display as follows at the selected location where the ‘Google Man’ was dropped as shown:

Once the Street View is successfully displayed, you can move around and view the immediate area by holding down the Cntrl-Key on a standard keyboard and Left-Clicking and holding down the left-click on the computer mouse simultaneously to move around the area.

Locate the Cntrl-Key and Left-Click on mouse as shown:

How To Generate Seller Financing Notes From Land Records

There are currently 2 different types of Seller Financing Notes, (Loan and Lease Purchase) that exists in Investment Dominator.

Seller Financing Notes for either a Loan or Lease Purchase note can be easily generated from Land Records in Investment Dominator by executing the following instructions.

Note: Please check with LPG Management Staff regarding associated costs for servicing Seller Financing Notes in your Investment Dominator account. 

Step 1) Access The Payment Calculator For A Specific Land Record

To access the ‘Payment Calculator’ for a specific land record, the following must be completed:

      • 1) Access the ‘Selling Stage‘ records
      • 2) Land Record must be in ‘Complete/ Ready To Sell‘ status
      • 3) Select the ‘Option‘ function for the Payment Calculator
      • 4) Select ‘Payment Calculator’ to calculate terms

Access the ‘Payment Calculator’ for a selected land record as shown:

Step 2) Enter Appropriate Seller Financing Term Data

Enter the appropriate Seller Financing Term data based on the ‘Type’ of Seller Financing Note selected.

If generating a Loan Type note populate the ‘Enter Down Payment’, ‘Enter Annual Property Tax’, ‘Enter HOA/POA’, ‘Enter Interest Rate’, ‘Enter Monthly Loan Service Fee’, ‘Enter Term’ fields as appropriate based on agreement with potential buyer.

If generating a Lease Purchase Type note populate the ‘Enter Deposit’, ‘Enter Annual Property Tax’, ‘Enter HOA/POA’, ‘Enter Base Rate’, ‘Enter Monthly Loan Service Fee’, ‘Enter Term’ fields as appropriate based on agreement with potential buyer.

Note: Hover over any [?] associated with a specific field to reveal a detailed explanation on how to best utilize that field in the note transaction.

Once the Seller Financing Term data has been entered press the blue ‘Summarize Terms‘ button to calculate current amounts due; as well as, show monthly Loan or Lease Purchase payments. 

An example of a Loan Type note for a 48 month term is shown as follows:

Step 3) Send Terms Output To Potential Buyer Or Create New Loan

Once terms of either the Loan or Lease Purchase have been calculated from Step 2) this information should can be sent to the potential buyer (in a PDF file format) for agreement by pressing the blue ‘Copy To Clipboard‘ button as shown:

Note: After pressing the blue ‘Copy To Clipboard’ button and showing all information highlighted, to create a PDF file format simply paste the contents of the Clipboard into a Word file and save that word file, (as PDF).

If the terms of either the Loan or Lease Purchase have been approved by the potential buyer then press the blue ‘Create New Loan‘ button as shown:

Step 4) Enter Appropriate Buyer And Verify Loan Information

After pressing the blue ‘Create New Loan’ button from Step 3) the system will migrate to the Notes section of Investment Dominator.

It is important to select the appropriate ‘Primary Buyer’ and/or ‘Secondary Buyer(s) prior to proceeding to the final Step 5) Creating the Note.

Verify all information in ‘Note Information’ section (i.e. Original Sale Amount, Monthly Payment etc.) for accuracy as shown:

Step 5) Create Note In Investment Dominator

Once all note information has been verified in Step 4) proceed with pressing the blue ‘Create Note‘ button to actually generate the Loan or Lease Purchase Note in Investment Dominator as shown:

The newly created Seller Financing Note should appear when accessing the Notes function in Investment Dominator and be in ‘Open’ status as shown:

How To Generate A New Land List With DataTree

NOTE: The DataTree Integration is a paid addon option for the Investment Dominator system that is currently in beta and available for select accounts only at this time.

We are excited to announce our new Investment Dominator DataTree Integration which allows you to generate a filtered and formated land list directly from DataTree and with only a few clicks import that into the system.

With this integration, you will not need to filter, scrub, or manually import land records into the system!

Let’s take a dive into this step by step to understand what DataTree is and how to use its integration.

First, log into your Investment Dominator CRM and navigate to the ‘Land‘ tab, then click the ‘Import‘ option.

By default, the standard ‘Upload Import CSV File‘ option will be preselected, so for the purpose of this article go ahead and click ‘Get Data From DataTree’ option. This selection will change ‘Step 2‘ of the process and look like the following:

NOTE: Notice the ‘Select Criteria…’ dropdown and ‘Load Criteria’ button, these options can be used after you first define and save a list’s criteria. More information about that process can be found here.

STEP 1: Generating Your New Land List – Selecting List Criteria

To start the process, select the State you want to generate your list in.

A list of Counties for that State will then load.

Select the County that you would like to focus on.

For this example, I choose to do the State of Arizona and the County of Graham. (Please note you can do whichever location you want).

You will notice how once we enter the County information we see Market Value pop up allowing us to set the range for properties we want to look for within the selected area. This can come in handy later when if we want to expand our generated list for more properties.

Click the ‘Get Record Count‘ button to find out how big your land list is and then generate your list (Skip to STEP 2 of this article), or we also have some neat ‘Advanced Filters’ which can help you adjust your list criteria further…

Advanced Filters

Click the ‘Advanced Filters‘ section to expand it.

Under this section you can adjust the ‘Property Size Range‘, allowing you to adjust your list to only contain properties within the range of acres you select.

Next is the option to Include Owners with Multiple Properties this is selected by default to ‘Yes‘ in order to provide ease of access when working through your list. If you so choose you can set this to ‘No‘, however this means you would have to manually input the other properties of that owner to your list in the event they want you to make an offer on all of their properties that they own.

Lastly, we have the option to Exclude Owner Zip Codes which by default is set to ‘No‘ but for the purpose of this article when you hit ‘Yes‘, you will be prompted with a textbox.

This box allows you to enter in zip codes of areas you would like to not include in your list.

Now that we have gone over the advanced filters let’s click the button called ‘Get Record Count’ to continue.

STEP 2: Getting Your Record Count

After clicking the ‘Get Record Count’ button some new options will pop up as well as information about your generated list.

Let’s start with the top ‘Exclude Previously Imported Records’ option. This option is preselected to ‘Yes‘ which comes in handy when we are loading the same Criteria again to perform another search. You don’t want to pay for the same leads more than once right? This option allows you to exclude those.

If you change any of the information above while you are in this step you can hit the button ‘Refresh Count‘ button to see what the updated list size is.

Next, we have the ‘Limit Size of Mailing’ which is followed by a text box and an indicator in brackets notifying you how many records you have left in the month from DataTree.

For example, if there are 10,000 records in a county but you only have 500 records left in your DataTree monthly allotment you will need to enter in 500 to only pull 500 of the 10,000 possible records for that county. The system will then pull a random set of 500 records out of the 10,000 records and import only those into your system.

Lastly, we have the ‘Tag Records’ option which allows you to add tracking or segmenting tags to all the records generated in this list. You can add as many tags as you wish.

NOTE: If you would like to save this list of criteria in the system for future reference, see this article:

After reviewing all of the options hit the ‘Import List‘ button to continue.

You will then get a notification that your list has been imported and you should notice your new records appear under the ‘Land‘ tab.

NOTE: Records are created under the ‘Prospect‘ status by default.
