Zillow Continues Mobile App Expansion, Giving 90% of Smartphone Users a Dedicated Zillow App for Home Shopping



SEATTLE, March 31, 2011 -- Zillow, the leader in mobile real estate, today announced the launch of the Zillow BlackBerry App for Research in Motion®'s BlackBerry smartphones. The addition of a BlackBerry app – along with Zillow's lineup of leading real estate apps on iPhone®, iPad®, and Android™ – means more than 90 percent(i) of smartphone users can now access the power of Zillow's rich real estate  information on more than 100 million properties.

Zillow is used on a mobile device more than 6.5 million times each month, with 23 million visits to home detail pages.

"We're excited today to expand the Zillow mobile experience to the millions of Americans who are passionate BlackBerry users," said Spencer Rascoff, chief executive officer of Zillow. "Many of our fans – including significant numbers of real estate professionals – have asked us to bring our transformative mobile experience to the BlackBerry platform, and we're thrilled to give them this option today."

The location-based Zillow BlackBerry App uses GPS technology to find and follow users on an aerial map, and displays Zestimate® home valuations, homes for sale, homes for rent, Rent Zestimates, Make Me Move® listings and recently sold data on the homes around them. Additional features on the Zillow BlackBerry App include:

    * Multiple search filters that include price, number of bedrooms and bathrooms and other valuable home-related information.
    * Homes viewable on a map with high-resolution satellite and street view.
    * Home search by location or by typing in a city, ZIP code or address.
    * Full-screen color photos of homes.


The Zillow BlackBerry App is available today and is free to download.  The Zillow BlackBerry app can be found online at BlackBerry App World in the "shopping" category, or by searching for "Zillow."

More information about the Zillow BlackBerry App is available at www.zillow.com/mobile/.
