Building a housing community comes with no shortage of challenges. You know going in, that every home will sell, but how quickly? Slow selling homes can put undue financial stress on your company while quick moving sales can bring prosperity. Utilizing technology such as Google Mapping, Street View, Drones, and GPS services have changed the housing market. Not being able to update your property or show it off to potential buyers can deeply impact your sales.
As with anything, Google is a constantly evolving entity and as of June 1, 2018, the way Street View gathers its data is changing. Business Photos America Inc. has been a part of Google’s Business View project for the last six years and we are excited to be one of Google’s first Trusted Street View Agencies to operate a Street View car. Instead of waiting for the three years Google update (assuming they get to your street), it is now possible to update your community’s maps and images every month. Please look over what is now possible below and let’s talk about how these changes can push your sales into a quicker turnover.
On call Street View dispatch
Problem: Street View cars were not available for dispatch, and there was no way to request one visit your community until now. This has left the housing market without street view unless a Street View car came through (and that’s IF the car ever came). Google had set their cars on a 3-year rotation.
Solution: Business Photos America Inc. has been authorized to run and dispatch a Google car. This will allow us to serve you, our customer, on an as-needed basis.
Street View Scan of streets on intervals with Google Maps with Maps blueline showing progress (no longer waiting 3 years)

Solution: Business Photos America Inc. can now come on a monthly schedule with the Streetview car. This will result in up to date map images showing real progress for potential customers.
Insert new Branded Streets and addresses on Google maps as they are built
Problem: New roads and addresses in a new community were not searchable on Google Maps and associated Google GPS services until the community was updated (As long as 3 years) so potential customers could not find the community or locations within.
Solution: Business Photos America Inc. can scan and add the roads in real time as they are built, even if they are still dirt, showing the progress. Google will acquire addresses from the images as they are visually added on the street. This can happen on a monthly basis

Solution: Business Photos America Inc. is able to take the data and submit it not only to Google but to the car manufactures, Apple, Bing, Garmin and a host of other stand-alone GPS devices. When the customer updates the GPS, the communities will be covered. Most customers use cell sites such as Google, Apple, and Waze, they will be up to date as soon as we submit the data.
