I predicted it, "Zillow Buys....!" 22 months ago

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Tampa Properties

Zillow buys Trulia and along with it Market Leader and Activerain. Nice, four links in one sentence, but i digress.

But, I did predict it: sort of, kinda, long ago and very tongue in cheek and perhaps with a glass of Sangria near my keyboard:

Now that the future is here, a lot of uncertainty exists.  Some hate the merger, others love it.  Time will tell, I personally am taking a wait and see attitude!

Problem is not the merger itself. It's more of what they do with my listing content. ... see I'm a listing realtor, so my value is content, without my listings they don't survive. I still have the MLS, so they need to pay me

They didn't when I was there many years ago, but I'll bet they have a Starbucks near Ayers Rock now Kerrie.  Never going to happen Michael.

Very funny to look back at that and see what ended up happening!  I think AR has much value in many different ways, despite mergers/sales, I think we'll continue on just fine.
