Zillow Mortgages on AOL Real estate and DailyFinance
Today, the Zillow Mortgage Marketplace (ZMM) has announced they will now power mortgage search and comparison on AOL Real Estate and DailyFinance, expanding their existing partnership with AOL, having announced in October that ZMM would power all mortgage research on AOL which was expected to launch in 2012. ZMM will be featured on the AOL Real Estate home page, listing pages, home finance center and DailyFinance articles.
AOL Real Estate and DailyFinance visitors will be offered mortgage calculators, real-time mortgage rates, and Zillow’s mortgage shopping experience, which allows users to compare personalized loan quotes and lender reviews, and to connect directly with lenders. In 2011, consumers have submitted nearly five million loan requests, averaging 18 customized loan quotes per loan request.
“We planned to launch this integration next year, but as mortgage rates remain at historic lows consumers are clamoring for quick and useful mortgage information. In less than two months, Zillow and AOL’s development teams worked closely together to launch Zillow Mortgage Marketplace on AOL Real Estate and DailyFinance,” said Spencer Rascoff, Zillow CEO. “Expanding Zillow Mortgage Marketplace to AOL is an important milestone, and will expose our unique mortgage offering to many more millions of mortgage shoppers.”
“Our goal is to provide a suite of best in class financial tools and resources to support our users as they make personal finance and real estate decisions through their life stages,” said Jay Kirsch, SVP & GM, AOL Marketplace. “We are thrilled to have Zillow join our team of outstanding partners. Collectively, we are bringing the best of the Web to our AOL users in one comprehensive online destination.”
