CoStar Group Integrates Homesnap Operations With Homes.Com

CoStar Group (NASDAQ: CSGP) – a leading provider of online real estate marketplaces, information, and analytics in the commercial and residential property markets – today announced the next steps in its integration of and Homesnap.

This month CoStar Group relaunched at the annual National Association of Realtors (NAR) conference held in Orlando. The new is a more agent friendly real estate portal alternative. Home buyers can uniquely select an agent from a comprehensive directory of hundreds of thousands of agents based upon those agents’ experience and neighborhood expertise. The majority of home buyers work with an agent, and the new uniquely empowers home buyers and their agents to collaborate throughout the home buying process on for free. The sales team conducted demonstrations of the new for approximately 2,000 agents at the NAR conference. In anonymous surveys, those agents rated the new a 9.6 on a scale of 1 to 10. Given the overwhelmingly positive response to the new, the company believes that the new product strategy is a home run.

Today, CoStar Group took steps to combine and streamline the operations and functionality of and Homesnap. David Mele, who led for 7 years prior to its acquisition by CoStar Group in 2021, has been named President of the combined and Homesnap organization. The company believes that the combined entity is now better positioned to efficiently achieve its goal of becoming the leading residential real estate portal.

Over the course of the next 12 months, CoStar Group expects to increase the net number of employees building by 700 after today’s reorganization and headcount reduction of approximately 100 duplicative roles.

“CoStar Group is working to integrate the best of with the best of Homesnap and Citysnap,” said Andy Florance, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of CoStar Group. “We appreciate the hard work, dedication, and contributions from the entire Homes and Homesnap teams that have helped to grow our residential business. While this integration will unfortunately impact some of our employees, their work has been integral to creating a product that better serves the industry and our customers.”
