Everyone who has ever searched for a new home online agrees, it's great but not enough. The lack of having an actual perspective of the home, the neighborhood and it's setting can make or break one's desire for a home.
This multi-dimensional perspective can almost be achieved by using Google Maps Street View. Home searchers for the Denver metro area will be happy to know Google Street View is available in the area.

Google offers a Guide to using Street View here.
