I’m happy to announce that Education.com has joined us as a Zillow API partner. We’ve heard time and time again that home buyers want to look at school data, which led us to recently integrate school data in the experience on Zillow. That said, it makes sense that the reverse is also true — those looking at schools are also likely interested in the local real estate. Education.com is a natural partner given their school finder feature that allows users to search for schools throughout the country and an audience that is looking to research local schools. The integration of the Zillow API can be found on their individual school pages — for example, the page for Beacon Hill Elementary or Canoga Park Senior High School. The module (image below) gives the person looking at a particular school some background regarding the demographics and the home value trend in that specific city. You’ll also notice that they are taking advantage of our new co-branding functionality; when you click through from a school page to Zillow, you’ll see a co-branded experience with a link back to Education.com.
We’re glad to have them onboard!
