Dude, Just GIS Her

Have you always wondered what old Maynard down the street paid for his house when he bought it in 1947, but haven't asked him because jealousy is unbecoming? Or, maybe you're curious about how much those young whippersnappers next door plopped down for their condo, but haven't had the heart to ask them because you don't want to laugh in their faces. Well, that's why the Internet was invented: To snoop on your neighbors without them knowing.

Courtesy of the City of Westbrook website, you can find out how much your neighbors paid for their houses, as well as other bits of information they probably thought wasn't just a couple clicks away on the 'Net. Click here to satisfy your curiosity.

On a final note, I'm thinking that with the far reach and power of this website behind it, "GIS him" will be as common in the Westbrook lexicon as "Google her" is. So, that's our goal; spread the word.
