Today, Yahoo! Real Estate and Zillow announced an exclusive partnership that will offer advertisers a single channel to reach across both sites. Zillow will exclusively sell advertising to real estate agents and brokers on Yahoo! Real Estate and Zillow will supply its 4 million for-sale listings, as well as Zestimate home values, to Yahoo! Real Estate, creating a convenient one-stop advertising solution that brings together the second- and third-largest real estate websites.
Zillow.com is now powering for-sale listings on Yahoo Real Estate and selling ads that feature real estate agents and brokers on both sites, the companies said as they flipped the switch on a partnership announced in July.
The partnership effectively doubles the exposure agents and brokers who purchase advertising from Zillow.com receive, CEO Spencer Rascoff said when the companies joined forces to create what they touted today as \"the largest real estate network on the Web.\"
But analysts say that in deciding where their advertising dollars are best spent, real estate agents and brokers must consider more than just site traffic. They also need to consider the quality of that traffic, or \"traffic engagement,\" and their return on investment from traffic at various sites, as some visitors may be serious buyers or sellers browsing listings while others may simply be seeking information and not in the market to buy or sell.
BHI was founded and is owned by leading U.S. homebuilders. Its flagship product, NewHomeSource.com, brings new home communities directly to consumers in one easy location. Integrating this experience with Zillow further extends the quality real estate inventory on the site, giving consumers more choices when it comes to home purchases.

SEATTLE and SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Zillow.com and Yahoo! Real Estate ( ) 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.
For the first time, real estate agents have the opportunity to advertise locally on Yahoo!

Zillow Inc. is a real estate information company with a marketplace where homeowners, buyers, sellers, renters, real estate agents and mortgage professionals find and share vital information about homes and mortgages. Launched in early 2006 with Zestimate home values and data on millions of U.S. homes, Zillow has since added homes for sale and homes for rent, a directory of real estate and lending professionals, Zillow Advice, Zillow Mobile apps and Zillow Mortgage Marketplace. One of the most-visited U.S. real estate websites, with nearly 16 million unique visitors per month, Zillow's goal is to help people become smarter about homes and real estate in every stage of their lives -- home buying, selling, renting, remodeling and financing. The company is headquartered in Seattle.
In addition to Yahoo! Real Estate, Zillow and Trulia, several other leading online real estate sites have agreed to adopt the standard, including Homes.com, Homescape, Oodle, Point2 Technologies, RealEstate.com, Vast.com, and vFlyer.
SEATTLE and SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Two of the most popular real estate websites in the country today announced an exclusive partnership that will offer advertisers a single channel to reach across both Yahoo! Real Estate and Zillow.com later this year. This partnership brings together the second-and third-most trafficked real estate websites(1), making this one of the most powerful and far-reaching real estate ad networks on the web. As part of the relationship, Zillow will power all for-sale listings on Yahoo! Real Estate.
Once the integration of Zillow's more than 4 million for-sale listings is complete, home shoppers using Yahoo! Real Estate (realestate.yahoo.com) will continue to search for homes by geography, price and other criteria. The home shopping experience for Zillow's users will not change. The financial terms of the partnership were not disclosed.
Although the partnership is expected to go into effect later this year, Zillow and Yahoo! Real Estate are immediately coordinating sales efforts for the advertising network. Upon full implementation, real estate agents and brokers who advertise and place their listings on the sites will receive greater value and simplicity in several key ways.
\"This new partnership between Zillow and Yahoo! Real Estate creates the opportunity for agents and brokers to reach one of the largest audiences of homebuyers online when they list a home or purchase an ad,\" said Spencer Rascoff, Zillow COO. \"Today, Zillow offers a range of services for every stage of homeownership and we're excited to build upon our long-standing relationship with Yahoo!
