					Zillow and Yahoo! Real Estate
Launch Largest Real Estate Network
on the Web
SEATTLE and SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Zillow.com® and Yahoo!® Real Estate
(http://realestate.yahoo.com) today launched an exclusive partnership that brings together the two sites and
creates the largest real estate network on the web, according to comScore® Media Metrix®(1) Zillow's sales
force now sells local advertising across both sites, and the 4 million for-sale listings on Zillow now also
appear on Yahoo! Real Estate. Zillow® and Yahoo! Real Estate announced plans for the partnership in July
2010.


Real estate agents and brokers will now have the ability to buy local advertisements on both sites with just
one phone call to Zillow. Tens of thousands of industry professionals have reached Zillow's nearly 16 million
monthly unique users(2) with advertising programs like Zillow's Premier Agent, which allows agents to target
specific ZIP code searches, and with Showcase Ads and Featured Listings, which allow agents and brokers
to increase traffic to individual listings. Both of these programs will now be extended to Yahoo! Real Estate.
For the first time, real estate agents have the opportunity to advertise locally on Yahoo! Real Estate, one of
the largest individual real estate sites on the web, gaining access to a new set of customers and clientele.
Home buyers will now have access to more local listings on Yahoo! Real Estate, along with more
photographs.


In addition to selling local ads, Zillow is also selling national display advertising across both sites to new
home builders, real estate agents and brokers.


Additionally, Zillow is now Yahoo! Real Estate's exclusive provider of for-sale listings. Any for-sale listing that
appears on Zillow – including many listings not found on other sites, such as for-sale-by-owner listings – will
automatically appear on Yahoo! Real Estate.


The Yahoo! and Zillow relationship began in 2006 when Yahoo! Real Estate incorporated Zillow's
Zestimate® home valuations for more than 72 million U.S. homes into its user experience.
"We're thrilled to be providing agents and brokers with outstanding new opportunities to extend their reach
on the largest online real estate network," said Spencer Rascoff, Zillow CEO. "One phone call can now
connect industry professionals to the biggest real estate network on the web. The launch of this partnership
will simplify advertising decisions and bring Zillow listings to millions of additional users every month."
"This partnership brings together the scale of Yahoo!'s audience with the depth of Zillow's real estate
listings," Greg Hintz, head of Yahoo! Listings, said. "No other real estate websites are better suited to bring
such a vast offering to agents, brokers and advertisers."


Real estate agents or brokers interested in advertising across the Yahoo!/Zillow Real Estate Network can
contact Zillow's sales team at 866-324-4005.
