    Zillow gets millions of new users, but how much new revenue

    This stock is being manipulated, if you catch it right, you can probably make money, but it does appear Citron is on to something. They get all these new users, then how about bump guidance.
    I have been watching the stock trade, pure manipulation.
    The market makers may be able to prop it, but it is only time until this stock bombs down.

    • please sign up, give me free data, we will turn around and sell you your own gifted data, for a price, in a short while;; please be patient, and, get your wallet out - btw, we take visa, mc, amex, but not discover. and we only hope you do not discover, for yourself, "how much wood could a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood"; give the gift that keeps on selling; thanks for listening.

    • i think the page views are by folks shopping for houses or, worse yet, the slowing rental mkt (for which i read that Z wasted 40m, half its cash, to buy some stupid acquisition)...

      however the page views are increasing but decelerating just as you'd expect in a market that grows only slowly.

      but the question i am asking myself is this: if Z makes most of its money from active real estate agents why do the agents need to subscribe to Z themselves? they still have to pay for a professional listing service for their areas so if someone sees a house on Z or Trulia or wherever, the realtors just look it up in their own databases or heck, if for any reason their data base omits it, they can look it up on Z without paying anything... so i just don't get the business model. supposedly Z is selling subscriptions, leads and advertising... well, good luck to 'em, bless their souls and all that but aside from a few gullible agents who feel a need for any and every data service known to man, i don't see who's gonna want to pay them, as in pay and pay and not cancel when they figure out its a waste. but then maybe that's why Z doesn't report their churn.

      plus where are the barriers to entry? i just don't get it and i especially don't get the valuation.

      me? shorting the bounces.

    • new users are not new paying customers. Benchmarks report was on site traffic data (such as you and I just stopping in to look at the price of our homes using zestimate (which values my home 20 below current market value... ==") However, Z only generates revenue from real estate brokers...that would be a more important number to look at...
