Zillow, Inc. Research Report

On August 8, 2013, Zillow, Inc. (Zillow) reported the results of its latest
Zillow Home Price Expectations Survey, which included 106 economists, real
estate experts, and investment and market strategists. According to the
survey, more than 100 forecasters said that they expect the Zillow Home Value
Index to end 2013 up an average of 6.7% YoY. Further, the survey also
highlighted that while relatively few respondents expressed concern about the
impact of recent increases in mortgage rates, most believe that rates of 6% or
higher would pose significant threat to the housing recovery. "Short-term
expectations for home value appreciation through the end of this year are
consistent with a nationwide housing market recovery that is both
strengthening and widening, but still coping with high levels of negative
equity, high demand, and low inventory," said Dr. Svenja Gudell, Senior
Economist at Zillow. "Combined, these factors will continue putting upward
pressure on home values for the next few months." The Full Research Report on
Zillow, Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price
targets - is available to download free of charge at:
