Zillow, which will begin trading under the symbol “Z” on the NASDAQ tomorrow morning, aims to raise as much as $71.6 million in the IPO.

As the stock goes public, the company is released from the SEC’s quiet period they have been subjected to since filing for IPO status, and we will see Zillow get back to a new normal.

They will be able to talk more openly about operations, but will now live by a new set of rules given that they are publicly traded and they’ve shed their startup life.

Zillow’s IPO has been a long time coming

This news has been a long time coming and at one time the company even denied they intended to go public. At $20 a share, will you be buying shares tomorrow morning?
