Zillow Group Closes Acquisition of ShowingTime, the Industry Leader in Home Touring Technology

ShowingTime's technology and services simplify online tour scheduling for agents, buyers and sellers

SEATTLE, Oct. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Zillow Group (NASDAQ: Z and ZG), which is transforming the way people buy, sell, rent and finance homes, today announced the closing of its acquisition of ShowingTime, an online scheduling platform for home showings. Touring is one of the most important steps in the home shopping and selling journey, and ShowingTime’s technology has streamlined and improved the touring experience. The company is an industry leader, and Zillow Group will continue to invest in ShowingTime to improve its functionality.

ShowingTime’s technology coordinates scheduling behind the scenes so agents can seamlessly book a confirmed home showing online and focus on their clients, simplifying a traditionally complicated and cumbersome process. In the past 12 months, the company has facilitated more than 63 million showings across its network of more than one million agents affiliated with hundreds of Multiple Listing Services (MLSs).  Under the Zillow Group umbrella, Zillow Group will adhere to ShowingTime’s existing privacy policy, and it will continue to operate as an individual brand and open platform for its existing and new clients, so the industry can continue to benefit from a simplified tour scheduling experience. 

Zillow Group entered into a definitive agreement to acquire ShowingTime in February 2021 for $500 million. The transaction was successfully closed upon meeting customary closing conditions.
