July 28 (Bloomberg) -- On today’s “BWest Byte,” Cory Johnson reports on what’s behind the Zillow and Trulia deal. He speaks on “Bloomberg West.” (Source: Bloomberg)

A very specific number -- the bwest right today is dozens.

Trulia said in their conference call today that they had dozens of multiple listing services that provide listings directly to trulia.

Zillow has none of these.

The ability to show every house for sale in a given neighborhood has been troubling for zillow.

You can be in a neighborhood standing in front of house for sale, looking at zillow and not see it.

But by biting -- five by eating -- i buying trulia, they get access to that.

What does the mega merger to other players in this space customer they all do slightly different things but companies -- what does it mean for them?

Red tin is a broker and not a listing service.

They don't pretend to show you every listing out there.

Trulia and zillow pretend to show you every listing and attendance -- it's an interesting notion that it collective of media properties like conde nast or time warner where you have lots of different races were the same advertisers have to buy ads, that is what this renovation is.

They are talking about $100 million in cost cuts over the next two years but they also get the benefit of having a lot of market share.

What does it need for users?

-- what does it mean for users?

The users of these two sites is very different.

It was ready clear from the conference call that they don't know how they are going to differentiate these.

But it could become greater.

You could imagine trulia becoming higher and and zillow more of a mass-market product for renters, buyers, sellers and so on.
