Zillow and Trulia have steadily increased their presence as a platform for property sales in the real estate industry since their introduction some years ago. Zillow offers laymen information on local listings, sales history and specifications on properties, ownership and mortgage amounts, estimated rent and sale prices asked for properties held out for sale, and will even notify users when a specific property has been listed for sale or has been sold. Zillow also has the capacity to calculate down payments and interest rate options.
