This is a handy tool that allows you to simply enter an address and it instantly shows a street view of any address.
It was extra handy when we were looking for someone and they reported multiple current addresses – We needed their exact address for process of service. When I entered the address, the picture of the house was displayed, as well as a parked truck in the driveway. I knew the color and the type of truck the person drove and there it was parked right in the driveway!!
It is also handy for determining if the address is a mail drop, commercial or residential neighborhood. While using this FREE tool, look at the bottom right hand corner of the displayed picture and it notes when the picture was taken.
