Realogy Holdings Corp (RLGY), Zillow Inc (Z), Trulia Inc (TRLA): The Next Stock to Ride the Housing Market Wave

The business models of Zillow Inc (NASDAQ:Z) and Trulia Inc (NYSE:TRLA) are benefiting from the market upswing as well, but they haven’t been given the opportunity to show whether or not they would have the staying power to do what is necessary to make it through tough times. As of now, it appears Zillow Inc (NASDAQ:Z) would have the upper hand among online real estate companies because of its brand power.

Zillow Inc (NASDAQ:Z) has been the biggest winner thus far out of the three public companies discussed here because its business model is convenient for real estate agents and potential buyers to use. The company recently acquired StreetEasy to strengthen and round out its business in the New York area. Zillow Inc (NASDAQ:Z) is giving Trulia Inc (NYSE:TRLA) a pretty rough ride. Trulia Inc (NYSE:TRLA) faces stiff competition, and based on valuation metrics, its current stock price may not be primed for much future appreciation as of now.

Looking ahead
Re/Max still has plenty of room to expand while not facing too much pressure from its competitors. Depending on the IPO price, Re/Max could certainly present a great option for investors to ride the housing market bull trend.
