Zillow Business, Users, and Shares Soar

By Phil Butler | February 15, 2013

Zillow Inc's revenue skyrocketed in Q1 as Internet users crowded the site early in 2013. According to the news, almost 50 million unique visitors migrated to the website in January.

Shares of Zillow jumped 12 percent on the news that revenue exceeded expectations, the company reported a 73 percent revenue improvement for the quarter, which spurred confidence in the company's value. Zillow's Zestimates of home value drive traffic via guaranteed real estate ad ROI.

Much of the Zillow gain comes at additional cost to real estate agents. According to news from Reuters, Zillow added some 2770 new users to their Premier Agent program. Zillow has been able to raise their prices for premium services due to their growing visibility and popularity online.

Other companies competing in the space are; Move Inc,, and Trulia Inc. While Zillow's Q4 revenue climbed to 34.3 million from $19.9 million in 2011, Trulia revenues almost mirrored theirs, while Move (4%) posted modest growth by comparison.

    1. Today every small scale company or multinational company wants
      to make their business on the top. I think in 2013 we'll see an acceleration of this trend. Since writing services are constantly getting requests, they tend to rush through the articles to get it back to the individuals requesting the service.
