What is Zillow?

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower consumers with information and tools to make smart decisions about homes, real estate and mortgages.

What We Do

Zillow is a home and real estate marketplace dedicated to helping homeowners, home buyers, sellers, renters, real estate agents, mortgage professionals, landlords and property managers find and share vital information about homes, real estate and mortgages. We are transforming the way consumers make home-related decisions and connect with real estate professionals.

It starts with our living database of more than 100 million U.S. homes* - including homes for sale, homes for rent and homes not currently on the market. Add to that Zestimate® home values, Rent Zestimates and lots of other useful information you won't find anywhere else, and as a result, consumers are given an edge in real estate.

In addition to, we also operate Zillow Mortgage Marketplace, where borrowers connect with lenders to find loans and get the best mortgage rates; and Zillow Mobile, the most popular real estate mobile platform today.

What's With the Name?

The Zillow name evolved from the desire to make zillions of data points for homes accessible to everyone. And, since a home is about more than just data - it is where you lay your head to rest at night, like a pillow - "Zillow" was born.
