  • Internet Information provider that we call “Desired Monopolies.”Well, your average realtor (we interviewed several as part of ourresearch for this report) doesn’t quite “hate” Zillow, but therealtor-Zillow relationship is complicated. Realtors generallyadmire Zillow’s web site and its ability to efficiently (andprettily) provide a wealth of real estate information.However, realtors loath Zillow’s price estimates, invariablydescribing them as wrong and bemoaning the friction theycause when prospective clients cite them, only to have therealtor "set them straight" with local knowledge Zillow nevercatches. But the biggest thing realtors hate about Zillow is that ... they don’t own it.
  • We can’t resist Zillow’s free, voyeuristic window into our neighbors’homes, what they paid for them, and what they’re worth now. Zillow’s officialbusiness model calls for signing up more subscribing real estateagents, facilitating more mortgage originations, and selling more of its highlytargeted advertising.Overlaid graphically data on the classic Zillow aerial presentation :Crime statisticsHealth statisticsImmunization rates at schoolsSewage treatment plants overlaid with arrows representing the predominantwind directionIf Facebook charts our social graph, then Zillow clearly has the lead incharting our environmental graph. And as a Desired Monopoly, Zillow can bethe trusted middleman, aggregating nice-to-have information into a must-have whole.
  • By only pursuing “sustaining innovations”that perpetuate what has historically helpedthem succeed, companies unwittingly openthe door to “disruptive innovations”.
