Yahoo hands over property sales listings to Zillow

The deal will benefit real estate advertisers, such as brokers, home builders and homeowners

Yahoo's real estate site will rely exclusively on Zillow for sales listings, as Yahoo continues its trend of handing over some of its portal services to specialists.

The deal, whose financial terms weren't disclosed, will bring Zillow's approximately 4 million property sales listings to Yahoo Real Estate later this year, but it will not affect the way Zillow's own Web site works, the companies said on Friday.

The deal will benefit real estate advertisers, such as brokers, home builders and homeowners, by streamlining the ad purchase process for the two sites and offering greater exposure, the companies said.

The agreement between Yahoo and Zillow doesn't include rental properties. The companies first partnered four years ago when Yahoo began displaying Zillow's property value estimates on Yahoo Real Estate.

In May, Zillow, with 7 million unique visitors, and Yahoo Real Estate, with 6.1 million, ranked second and third, respectively, in the U.S. real estate category, behind leader Move, which drew 12.4 million to its network of sites, which also includes Realtor.com and Moving.com, according to comScore.

Yahoo has struck similar partnerships in areas like personal ads through a deal with IAC's Match.com and job listings through its sale of Hotjobs to Monster.com, which in turn agreed to provide the content for Yahoo's career and job site. Yahoo is also implementing its search deal with Microsoft, in which Yahoo will rely on Microsoft for search crawling, indexing and ranking, as well as for pay-per-click ad sales.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
