2 Reasons Why I Think Zillow Is Great

In the following video, Fool contributor Matt Thalman gives two reasons why he loves Zillow (NASDAQ: Z  ) and feels the company will only continue growing and strengthening in the coming years.

He first explains how the company promotes and runs with the idea that Home Depot (NYSE: HD  ) built its business on, of "do-it-yourself home improvement." Zillow allows homeowners and homebuyers the ability to search for homes themselves, and not rely on a realtor to provide information.

The other reason I think Zillow is great is because it provides information about square footage, number of rooms, and even recent purchase prices of homes in an area. Consumers are now more informed, and there is a little more transparency in the housing industry.

    Everyone, including the author, is entitled to expressing opinion -- especially when the author tells you he owns the stock he's expressing bullish opinion on.
