A possible solution? Try Foxtons. Or any estate agent's site.
What do I like about it? I LOOSELY base my houses and flats on listings found there.
1) I find a place that fits as closely as possible to what I have imagined in my mind.
2) Foxtons displays photos of the house, 360 degree virtual tours, and floor plans. I often save these photos to my computer for future reference.
3) My favorite feature is Streetview by Google. You can stand on the street and just stare at the house for awhile and maybe the look at the neighborhood -- get your bearings. Sometimes, I spend an hour or two just Google-walking the streets in the neighborhood. Go for a virtual-walk.
4) Label your pictures clearly so that when you do your edits, if you need a reference, you can look through the photos.
These are just some of the ideas I have. Any others?
