(Seattle, WA) Real estate information giant zillow.com is buying one of its competitors.

The website is acquiring Street-Easy for $50 million in cash.

The acquisition is expected to give Zillow a huge lead in New York City, which is one of the nation’s most desirable housing markets.

Street-Easy will be run as a separate unit within Zillow and will maintain its brand.
