Murdoch makes his MOVE.
Shit just got real.
ListHub, a subsidary of MOVE, Inc now owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp just announced that starting in April they will stop sending listings to Zillow. Now this could just be a lot of saber rattling. But me thinks it might be real.
The topic/idea/theory of ListHub shutting down feeds to Zillow may seem familiar to Vendor Alley readers.
Back at the NAR Midyear meetings I got a chance to interview Steve Berkowitz, then CEO of MOVE. He stated that it would be “batshit crazy” to shut down ListHub to spite realtor.com competitors.
I guess Rupert Murdoch has been called worse. 2015 is starting off with a bang!
Inman News has an excelent post on this story so quit being a cheapskate and get a Select membership already!
