Home hunters in search of rental properties now have 90,000 additional listings available to them on property search and valuation site Zillow. Zillow has partnered with rental search site Apartments.com to more than double Zillow's rental listing offerings to 150,000, the companies announced today. Zillow has 12 million monthly visitors, almost 2 million of whom are currently renters, the company said. Zillow added that the partnership will also benefit the quarter of home shoppers who plan to look for both a home to buy and a home to rent, according to a June survey conducted by Harris Interactive for Zillow. The move "deepens Zillow's footprint in the rental search industry" and offers Apartments.com advertisers "unmatched exposure" to apartment shoppers, the companies said in a press release. The listings are available at Zillow.com and through the company's iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows Mobile platforms, Zillow said. Contact Inman News:...
