All real estate agents, brokers, appraisers have to take real estate photos. In the olden days we'd get out our laminated Thomas Guides and get the erasable markers out to draw our route. Fortunately technology has evolved to the point that software can create the optimal route for us. We can then take those digital maps and use them with our smart phones to take the most efficient route.

Previously this was only available via the Multiple Listing Service in conjunction with Bing maps. You would click "map" after you selected your comps and they would show up on the map. Then you'd click "driving directions" and you'd see the map above. You'd then click "email" top right and email it to yourself to open up on your phone. You would receive this link in email. If you click "show all directions," you will get every turn listed.

Fortunately as of June 2016 Google has made it possible to get a route with multiple destinations or stops. Here is how to use Google maps to get a digital map for multiple destinations.

First get your subject and comparable addresses that you need to photograph from MLS. Click driving directions. Then input the comp addresses via copy/paste to get them in the same order. You will then see the same route on Google maps.

Click "send to phone" and ... Well, so much for that function. While you can now see multiple destinations on Google map but you can't send it to your phone. You can click the "share" button and get a link you can email to yourself. Here is the Google link to this route. Be sure to add your starting address, home, office to get a full map with driving directions. You can get ask for "Short URL" and you'll get this https://goo.gl/maps/XpHikyZwSys or this is the long URL.

Unfortunately the Google and Bing maps aren't clickable to pull up on your smart phone. We can at least send the addresses in driving order to ourselves via email then click them one at a time. Better than nothing. I'll keep trying to find a way to get optimal driving directions on smart phones.
