- [By Eric Volkman]
Buying a home is a long, complicated, expensive process. So too, apparently, is marrying two big players in the online real estate marketplace. Zillow's (NASDAQ: Z ) pending buyout of rival Trulia (NYSE: TRLA ) -- first announced this past July -- has again been delayed. It's the latest in a lengthening series of halts. Why is this happening, and could it mean that the deal is now at risk?

The Q3 2014 earnings report for mid cap online real estate information stock Zillow Inc (NASDAQ: Z), a peer of small cap Move Inc (NASDAQ: MOVE) which News Corp (NASDAQ: NWSA) is acquiring and small cap Trulia Inc (NYSE: TRLA) which Zillow is also acquiring, is scheduled for after the market's close on Wednesday (November 5th). Aside from the Zillow Inc earnings report, it should be said that Move Inc reported Q2 2014 earnings on July 29th (revenue rose 7% to $61.3M, average monthly unique users of realtor.com®'s web and mobile si! tes grew 18% to 31.2M and Non-GAAP Loss Per Share was $0.03 per diluted share verses Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share of $0.11) and Trulia Inc reported Q3 2014 earnings on October 29th (total revenue rose 67% to $67.1M along with an adjusted net loss of $2.8 million, or $0.08 per share on a basic and diluted basis, compared with adjusted net income of $9.1 million, or $0.26 and $0.24 per share on a basic and diluted basis, respectively). The acquis ition of Move Inc and Trulia Inc though (assuming the Federal Trade Commission approves the deal) really leaves Zillow Inc as the main publicly traded online real estate information.

- [By Rich Duprey]
Critics of real estate portals Zillow (NASDAQ: Z ) and Trulia (NYSE: TRLA ) have long thought both companies represented poor business models, and the $3.5 billion all-stock merger of the two isn't about to change anyone's mind. Although there's been a lot of ink spilled about the benefits to accrue from combining the two real estate info houses, this may end up being less a fortuitous joining of forces and more like the merger of declining retailers Sears, Roebuck and Kmart that resulted in Sears Holding, which is still a sickly business today.
