It's illegal to do so, without displaying googles copyright notice on
the map (if you do not buy a commercial license...).

That's the reason for the google icon on http://www.housingmaps.com/ and

It's simply illegal to use google-maps.el.

To use the google maps, you (each and every site) need to register with
google and use an API-key (valid for just one domain, not one legal
person) they send to you (and show the copyright holder's icon...).
