New York City, February 15, 2006 – PropertyShark.com, a leading data analytical tool for property search and Trulia, a real estate listings metasearch service based in San Francisco, announced their partnership today.
“We have a bilateral cross linking relationship which allows Trulia to enhance its search results with PropertyShark data, helping to make it a better service for home researchers. In return, we use Trulia search results in PropertyShark reports, giving our users a good sense of what nearby properties are for sale. We also jointly promote each other,” comments chief executive officer of PropertyShark.com, Ryan Slack.
Trulia’s co-founder, Pete Flint adds, “The Internet real estate researcher is hungry for the most comprehensive and accurate information. With this integrated partnership, we can offer consumers a more informed search experience while supporting the sales process for brokers and agents.”
PropertyShark founder, Matthew Haines, further explains, “As the real-estate data market heats up, with lavishly-funded start-ups like Zillow joining the fray, it is essential that focused players like Trulia and PropertyShark partner to provide consumers and professionals with a soup-to-nuts offering of sales, leads, and property data and tools.”
The two companies have already partnered in Los Angeles and New York City markets and plan to tackle other key cities in coming months.
Trulia has revolutionized the search for residential real estate by offering a comprehensive source of information that does not require any software installation, download, or registration. By partnering with real estate brokers, Trulia helps consumers to find the most comprehensive and up-to-date information about individual homes for sale in addition to extensive information about neighborhoods and market trends. Based in San Francisco, Trulia was founded by two Stanford graduate students who believed that they could deliver a superior real estate search experience that met the needs of consumers and the real estate brokerage industry.
