Last week Zillow laid the smack down on the developer of the iZillow iphone-optimized webpage (see Zillow for iPhone), demanding that he pull down the site.

Sellsius blog has the low down.

Bottom line. Zillow offered $250 for the domain – which prompted the developer to take his situation to the Internets and spawned a budding #zillowfail discussion on Twitter.
Good news today, however, as the situation seems .

A statement received by this blog this afternoon reads:

We reached an amicable agreement to purchase the URL. I don’t want to discuss the agreed price but it’s more than the $250 he 1st requested.

He can continue to run the site with different branding. Pity this got unnecessarily heated; other than this, Auston seems like a good guy.

Kudos to both parties for being able to come to a friendly agreement.

Now back to zestimating your neighbor’s house.
