One of the pillars of the American economy remains the housing market. Over the last decade the Internet has increasingly made life easier and more transparent for perhaps the most significant and terrifying purchase an American will ever make — buying a home. Sites like Realtor.com, Redfin, Trulia, and Zillow have all contributed to providing more information to home buyers as they ponder their purchase. According to the National Association of Realtors over 90% of consumers will start their home search on the Internet. Zillow’s Spencer Rascoff will discuss the evolution of the Internet-enabled home purchase and how Zillow hopes to provide home buying services to American consumers. O’Reilly Media’s Government 2.0 reporter Alexander Howard will interview Mr. Rascoff during this event.
