SEATTLE, April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Real estate Web site Zillow.com today announced the launch of the Zillow® iPhone App, bringing Zillow's rich data on 88 million U.S. homes to the streets, and into users' hands.

Homeowners, buyers and sellers have researched more than 52 million individual homes on Zillow.com since the site's launch in 2006, which is more than half of all homes in the country. This same data on all homes is now available on the Zillow iPhone App, including:

 

  • Zestimate home values, home details and historical data on 88 million U.S. homes - 95% of all homes in the country.
  • Details, photos and contact info for 3.4 million for-sale listings - for sale by agent and for sale by owner.
  • Data on recently-sold homes.
  • Zillow's exclusive Make Me Move® listings, which reflect at what price an owner would consider moving.

     

 

 

 

"Researching homes and house-hunting is inherently a mobile experience," said Rich Barton, Zillow co-founder and CEO. "The GPS-enabled iPhone untethers our Zillow users from their computers and puts the power of our database of 88 million homes in their hands when they need it most - while they are looking at homes."

 

In addition to using the app on the go with GPS, users of the Zillow iPhone App can also search for homes by address, neighborhood, ZIP code or city, even if they're not nearby. Home data and details can be viewed both on a map and in a list. This search scenario can also be utilized on the iPod Touch. The Zillow iPhone App is free to download, and available for both the iPhone and iPod touch in Apple's App Store starting today. Search for "zillow" in the App store, or find it in the Lifestyle category.

 

Zillow.com is one of the largest U.S. real estate Web sites, and the fastest-growing real estate site today. Zillow recorded more than 8.8 million monthly unique visitors in March 2009, up 71 percent year-over-year.
