ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of Seattle, Washington-based Zillow.com to add a mortgage marketplace for lenders to get in front of the monthly visitors to the online real estate site. The startup takes publicly available housing data and displays it in a mashup fashion on maps. The company put tools in the hands of consumers to price homes using the startup's Zestimate, or Zillow estimate. Chief executive Spencer Rascoff said there is not an easy way to shop for loans without putting oneself out there so he thinks their timing is great.
