The real estate Web site, a site that provides free valuations — which it calls “Zestimates” — on most U.S. homes, has been cleared to operate in Arizona. According to The Arizona Republic, a bill signed into law this week allows Zillow to operate in the state. Last year, the Arizona Board of Appraisal ordered the Seattle company to stop offering property estimates because it did not have an Arizona appraiser’s license.

See my April 2006 post on Zillow: An Essential Site for Real Estate Lawyers.
