Back in the day, prospective home buyers were at the mercy of newspaper ads and playing phone tag with real estate agents. Thankfully today, websites and apps have made finding a place to live much simpler. One of the most famous of such apps is Zillow, an online real estate network that allows users to buy, sell and rent properties, as well as find agents and available home loans.
