HGTV Opens the FrontDoor with a great Google Maps real estate Mashup

Ok, if you haven't noticed already, I have a thing for following real estate apps, particularly those powered by a great map UI... webmap services and real estate go together like PB&J and the two disciplines are simply perfect for each other! Another fine real estate mashup is now available from the people at HGTV - enter Frontdoor.com (great name!) The site is well designed and provides a great mashup of real estate listings which is easy to navigate and has a great foundation created thanks to the use of the Google maps API to power the site's interactive mapping... once again a nice simple, functional resource that's easy to navigate and appears to do what you would expect... nice job! See http://www.frontdoor.com/

I'm still waiting for the "perfect" mashup of real estate and mapping. Here's my two current favorites: http://www.windermere.com and http://www.movoto.com (google map api plus birdseye link on detail page -- the rare mix!)
