UK-Based Real Estate Engine Launches

Just when you thought there were enough competitors in the real estate vertical, here comes some more. Last week a new real estate search engine, Roost, launched in selected US markets. Today UK-based DotHomes, which has been operating in the UK and South Africa, makes its US debut. DotHomes seeks to become “the Google of property search” and is crawling for listings. By contrast, Yahoo Real Estate, Roost, Trulia and Zillow, as well as others, get feeds from brokers and MLS services.
The rest of this post is at SEL.
The NY Times’s Bob Tedeschi has a good article about the real estate vertical today.
