At these two websites you can type in an address and see the property from a satellite view.
Zillow.com will show you the home from a satellite viewpoint, including the property lines. You can see what the other homes on the street look like as well. It also gives an estimated value of the property.
Google Earth is a program that needs to be downloaded in order to run. Most of the time you can zoom in further on a property on Google Earth than Zillow, but the photo may not be as up to date.
Both websites are a lot of fun to use. You can see most anywhere in the world!
