Yahoo! Real Estate Adds More “Z”
In July we announced the first phase of our partnership with Yahoo! Real Estate which exposes Zestimates and comparable homes to their broad audience. Today we are equally excited to announce the next two phases in our partnership with Yahoo! Real Estate; providing Zindex information on their redesigned real estate homepage and adding Zestimate charts to every one of their real estate classifieds property pages.
Integrating Zindex information onto the Yahoo! Real Estate homepage gives users an instant understanding of the current market value of a region they are interested in, including historical trends.
Putting Zestimate charts in hundreds of thousands of classifieds property pages in Yahoo! Real Estate is a great way to give home shoppers a perspective on how the home has appreciated over time. In addition, Yahoo! users have the ability to easily plot comparable sales directly on the property map.
Zillow’s overall partnership with Yahoo! Real Estate is now a complete valuation experience. Yahoo! users have access to free real estate valuations and it is trivially easy to for them to roll-up their sleeves, click through to Zillow.com and dig into the numbers.
All of this functionality will be available to the masses via our Open API launching this fall, but if you’d like to get in early, details are in this post.
