E-Mail Reports? Send you client a link like this!

I e-mail my clients with clickable links to the reports uploaded to my website.

In the e-mail I include a clickable link like this:

http://terraserver.microsoft.com/addres ... ngton%7cKY

That's one of the good ones available if there is an "Urban Area" selection.

If not they come out like this picture of farm boy's land.

Geeze, are we all just a bunch of farm boys in here.

Wait, there's Mike's place (an Urban area photo even:

http://terraserver.microsoft.com/addres ... c+WA+98028

Try including that for your clients. Mine love it.

I select the address find function of terraserver, type in the address of the house, and when it comes up, copy and paste the link into the e-mail I'm sending. The client clicks on it and there's an image of their house. I tell them to click on the picture to pan and zoom to their hearts content.

NOTE: Be careful. It ain't always right.

Enjoy.

Man, how old are these? My house doesn't even exist in that photo, along with about 5 -6 more. The first house on the left below the road in my grandparents' place. If you stay on the same side of the road moving east (that's right for you directionally challenged folks) the next two houses (now) are my parents and mine. The "extended family cluster", if you will.

Got my house and truck...and maybe even me! I really can't think what else the blob would be in that area of the back yard! Hmmm..."Visible from space!"...might be time for the diet?

Thanks Erby...pretty cool and will be a nice addition for my clients.

BTW...does this mean we can stop walking roofs?

Brian, look at the top of the screen by the address. It gives you the date. Yours is 20 February, 1992. It's not going to work for a few of your clients, but the majority will love you for it.

Sometimes I have to change the linked text as shown below for two links that are perfect examples of what can happen in five years. They are both the same area five years separate

Kind of a sad commentary somehow.

But it wows the clients.

And helps justify my higher fees.

Tell your client (where feasible) I also provide an aerial photo of your house and the surrounding area.

Note that you can right click on the picture and save it to your computer and then just send the client the picture, but it wows them more if they can pan & zoom and try other addresses.

I like it when the "Urban Area" photos are available. In color and much more of a closeup view.

But I couldn't figure out what the shiny spot on the back side of the house was. Is that you standing there?[:-magnify[:-magnify

Where you drinking beer and grilling steaks that day?
