How HouseValues works

Real estate dot-com continues to grow

Since 1999, HouseValues has carved a name for itself in the online real estate lead generation business. The company already is well known among agents and consumers who’ve used the service or seen its television commercials. And now, with its move to go public Wednesday, the company is set to continue growing.

Bellevue, Wash.-based HouseValues filed papers Wednesday with the Securities Exchange Commission in its first move to go public.
