If you’ve ever gone online to look at real estate, whether just curious or actually looking to buy a home, you’ve most likely gone to both zillow.com and trulia.com. Both sites are similar in nature, listing homes for sale or that have sold on the recent market and giving actual or estimated property values, along with other information such as property taxes and local schools.
Consumers may be interested to know that as of February 2015, Zillow has bought out its main competitor, Trulia. With the acquisition comes the newly formed Zillow Group which now includes, among others, the following four brands: Zillow, Trulia, HotPads and StreetEasy. According to zillow.com, not much will change for their users. Both brands will continue to operate separately with the main goal of empowering consumers whether they’re buying, selling, renting or financing, and connecting them with the best local professionals to help. All four brands will continue to pave the way for greater transparency in real estate.
