Better than Zillow?

According to BusinessWeek Online, there is new competition to Zillow.com, an online real estate service dedicated to helping consumers get an edge in real estate by providing valuable tools and information. The new site is Terabitz.com

According to Maya Roney, a writer from Business Week, "In my opinion, the coolest thing about Terabitz is its customizability (that’s a real word, I checked). Think iGoogle, but for real estate. For those without a personalized Google homepage, iGoogle allows you to add web feeds and “Google Gadgets” to the usual Google homepage so that when you go to www.google.com to search, you can also track things like the local weather, your stocks, your email or the top stories on your favorite news sites. With Terabitz, you enter a location and drag icons from the top of the page into “the workspace.” This way, you can simultaneously view maps, for-sale listings from a number of different sources, local photos, a list of restaurants or doctors offices in the area, population demographics, a mortgage rate calculator— you name it."
