Zillow share price plunges 20% year-to-date as its competitors Redfin and Trulia also experience an economic slowdown in the real estate market. The real estate market hits a sudden and significant slowdown in recent times. Zillow, Redfin, and Trulia experience the current trend that home buyer demand wanes in several key real estate regions such as San Jose, Seattle, Virginia, Washington D.C., Boston, and Chicago etc. Home formation growth falls short of house price momentum, so excess inventories arise as a result of lower home buyer demand.

Zillow makes most of its revenue from online ads and lead-generation tools for real estate agents, and Redfin and Trulia serve as online real estate brokerage firms with rich house data. After a decade of sluggish economic recovery, the U.S. real estate market has been heading into a mild recession in early-2018. Not only do mortgage rates rise in the current monetary policy phase, home prices continue to climb about twice as fast as average household income figures. Trump tax reforms also reduce tax incentives for home buyers to invest in U.S. real estate properties. These trends hurt the share price performance of both Zillow and Redfin alike.
