New Search and Mapping Features From ZipRealty Help Home-Buyers Identify Preferred School Districts and Neighborhoods

EMERYVILLE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 19, 2009 -- ZipRealty (NASDAQ: ZIPR) (, the first national real estate brokerage to allow home shoppers to post ratings of MLS-listed homes and agent service, now allows buyers to scout for homes in specific school districts within the 36 markets the company serves.

The new school district mapping feature -- which shows the explicit school district boundaries pertaining to a selected home listing -- is part of ZipRealty's latest release of advanced search tools allowing home-buyers to personalize their home hunt even further. Users can also now see boundaries for specific city neighborhoods in the mapping and satellite view.

In addition to the new school district and neighborhood information, ZipRealty added a keyword search feature allowing clients to look for homes with specific or unique features, such as granite countertops or a waterfront lot. These new search tools add to existing site features including client satisfaction ratings of agents, foreclosed home search, and Price Track, a reduced price search tool, creating an even more robust home shopping experience for buyers.

"We've been dedicated to providing buyers more information about homes for sale for the last ten years. We continue to add more and more innovative features, and important local details like school district and neighborhood boundaries are a natural evolution of that process," said ZipRealty President and CEO Patrick Lashinsky. "Buyers can already see photos and many different types of maps, including StreetView, on our site. Now they can look for really local information like neighborhood names, too."
