In recent years, Zillow has skyrocketed to a leading app for house hunting. Current CivicScience polling data show a total of 57% of U.S. adults use or have used Zillow. After a positive earnings call, the company looks to keep growing, with goals to continue developing their ‘super app’ for all things housing related – buying and selling real estate, renting, touring, financing, and more.

But not everyone using Zillow is a serious home buyer or seller. In fact, 78% of past and present users say they browse Zillow for fun – 58% only use it for fun, while 20% use it for both fun and to buy and sell homes. Those percentages far outweigh Zillow users who are exclusively utilizing the app for home buying and selling (22%).

Nearly 30% are renters, while 11% live at home with mom and dad.
