Redfin appeared today in the New York Times.
The article was the 2nd-most e-mailed article on the New York Times’s site.
The article also discussed Zillow’s launch. We were glad to see that Zillow seems to have no intention of being an online broker, since that’s what we do. In fact we may advertise on Zillow, or, assuming good accuracy, link to Zillow’s Zestimates.
A few folks have noted Zillow’s troubles with its site today, but going down under traffic doesn’t seem to us like the worst problem in the world to have. The site will go up & stay up.
What matters most is whether people get value from the site, and I believe they will.
Today our site was buried in traffic too, with new offers again coming in from customers buying homes online. It’s a great day to be in online real estate for both Redfin & Zillow.
