Zillow Moves Further Into Rentals With the Acquisition of HotPads
Zillow has agreed to acquire HotPads, a rental listings site, for $16 million in cash. The acquisition marks the Seattle company’s sixth in less than two years.

HotPads has 19 employees, who will continue to work from the company’s San Francisco office.
