What's Good for Trulia Is Good for Zillow


Residential real estate is hot, and we saw that when Ellie Mae -- a fast-growing provider of mortgage industry solutions -- posted blowout quarterly results on Tuesday night.

However, websites specializing in real estate are growing even faster. Trulia posted monster growth on Tuesday night. Revenue soared 97% as the average of monthly visitors rose 52% to 31.4 million. Trulia did post a wider loss than Wall Street was expecting, but the top-line growth is what Zillow and Realtor.com parent Move investors are applauding.

Move reports on Thursday night. Zillow posts its quarterly results next week.

In this video, longtime Fool contributor Rick Munarriz discusses why Trulia's strong top-line growth showing and its robust guidance for the current quarter bode well for Move and Zillow.
