Google’s real estate play, look out Zillow?

I’m not sure how this will effect Seattle’s nascent online real estate ventures, but Zillow and Redfin are probably thinking hard about Google jumping into the market with someone else.

The search giant reached a deal Friday to display listings from Trulia, a San Francisco real estate search and information service, and Realogy, parent company of realty companies Coldwell Banker, Century 21 and ERA. Ars Technica has some details.

Newspapers are probably also nervous about the deal. Craigslist has already siphoned off much of their classifieds, and now Google is going after real estate listings. Yikes.
