Google Gives Up on Real Estate

Google announced that they are getting out of the real estate business for now.  The competition is stiff with Zillow and Trulia and of course, Realtor.com.

Google has a cool feature where listings show up on Google Maps, but they are not getting enough traffic to justify putting resources against this.  Google Base also will no longer support uploading of listings.  It will be interesting to see if they eventually get back in to real estate.  If I had to guess, they will just buy Zillow or Trulia.  I think they should buy Trulia.

Here's the official announcement from the Google Lat Long Blog.
