The online real estate giant recently got into the mortgage business with its acquisition of Mortgage Lenders of America. Zillow has also been growing its direct buyer business, Zillow Offers, wherein the company is buying houses directly from sellers, making whatever improvements are necessary, then listing the home for sale. Zillow Offers launched in Phoenix in April and is also available in Las Vegas, Atlanta, and Denver.
