SEATTLE, Oct. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Today, leading real estate marketplace
Zillow, Inc. (NASDAQ:Z) introduces Zillow® Rentals, a free marketplace and
suite of tools for rental professionals. Zillow Rentals provides property
managers, rental agents and landlords with best-in-class productivity tools
and resources to help them manage and market their listings, for free.

This launch follows Zillow's acquisition of San Francisco-based RentJuice® in
June 2012. Now, all of RentJuice's technology solutions and services for
rental professionals, including its mobile apps, are available under the
Zillow Rentals brand. 

Included in the Zillow Rentals free suite of tools and resources:

  oBroad listings distribution. Rental listings are published to the Zillow
    Rental Network, the largest rental network on the Web[i], comprised of the
    millions of rental shoppers on Zillow.com and Yahoo!® Homes. More than 6
    million renters visit Zillow on the Web and mobile devices each month[ii].
    Listings also can be made accessible and searchable through free widgets
    for rental professionals' Facebook® pages and websites.
  oCustomer relationship management platform for managing listings,
    generating leads and building tenant relationships. The platform is
    available on the Web and through the Zillow Rental Pro apps on iOS and
    Android™.
  oOnline rental applications and transaction management tools that make it
    possible to complete a rental application from a browser or mobile device
    during a property tour.

Additionally, those professionals who are looking to maximize their marketing
efforts can subscribe to Zillow Rental Premier, a paid program that includes:

  oExtended listing syndication across 30 consumer websites.
  oAn email marketing platform to streamline tenant retention.
  oLeasing tools, including online consumer credit screening.

"Zillow is the most visited real estate website on desktops and on mobile, and
also one of the most visited rental sites. We have been aggressively expanding
into software tools for real estate professionals in order to become more
critical to their workflow and productivity," said Spencer Rascoff, Zillow
CEO. "The RentJuice acquisition four months ago laid the foundation for this
expansion in rentals, and today's announcement brings us one step closer
toward our vision of rewiring the rental industry."

"In the fast-moving rental market where units turnover six times more quickly
than homes for sale, rental professionals always are looking for ways to speed
up time-consuming administrative tasks so they can fill their vacancies
faster," said David Vivero, vice president of rentals at Zillow. "Through
Zillow Rentals, we're bringing free, intuitive technology solutions to solve
all of the issues, big and small, that rental pros run into every day in the
office and on the go."
