Signs that recession are behind us can already been gauged by the fact that G has started eyeing companies to acquire once again. But here are sure shot signs about recession getting over – Google is apparently looking to buy the real estate search engine Trulia.
Google is said to be in talks with the Bay area based startup for a possible price of around $150 million to $200. Trulia is a VC funded startup and is currently funded for close to $33 million from Accel partners and Sequoia capital.
But the more interesting part of the news is what Google has in mind for the real estate search engine. Apparently, Google sees a good fit for a real estate search engine to be integrated with Google Maps. So, you may not only search for real estates around a particular area, but can also have a virtual look at it. Call it the next gen househunting!
We are still not sure about how close we are to a deal sealing. We will let you know as and when that happens.
