The Seattle-based website Zillow was launched in 2006 to bring more transparency to the world of real estate. Consumers can use the site to find out what their homes are worth according to Zillow's "zestimate," or to check out home prices in areas they are interested in.

Since then, millions have used Zillow - it's become one of the most popular real estate websites in the world.

In January 2015, Zillow CEO Spencer Rascoff and Zillow chief economist Stan Humphries published "Zillow Talk: The New Rules of Real Estate," which is now out in paperback.

Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson spoke with the pair when the book first came out. Today we revisit their conversation.
