Zillow

Zillow gives value estimates of homes.  Zillow has data on 100 million homes across the United States, not just those homes currently for sale.   In addition to giving value estimates of homes, it offers several features including value changes of each home in a given time frame (such as one, five, or 10 years), aerial views of homes, and prices of comparable homes in the area. Where it can access appropriate public data, it also provides basic information on a given home, such as square footage and the number of bedrooms and bathrooms. Users can also get current estimates of homes if there was a significant change made, such as a recently remodeled kitchen. Zillow provides an application programming interface (API) and developer support network.

Redfin

Redfin gives value estimates of homes.  Redfin is an online real estate brokerage with agents in several regions throughout the United States. The company was founded by David Eraker in his small apartment in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. Among many options for the company’s name, he settled on “redfin,” an inversion of the word “finder.” Redfin combines a real estate search site with real estate agents. Redfin.com’s map search displays homes for sale and information about those homes. Customers use the site to search broker databases, past sales records and third-party appraisals, while the company’s local agents handle property access, legal paperwork and negotiations.  Redfin offers buyers up to a 50% rebate (except in Oregon where real-estate laws prohibit it) on the commission paid to the buyer’s agent.
