TORONTO, ON (RPRN) 08/30/10 — Personalized Search Experience Focuses on Real-time Listings, and Community, Demographic and Lifestyle Information

-- Yahoo! and Zoocasa, Canada's fastest growing real estate search site, today announced the launch of a new application that enables Canadians to access Zoocasa's online real estate search service directly from their Yahoo.ca homepage.

Now the more than 17 million Canadians who visit Yahoo! every month will be able to search for a new home, research local neighbourhoods and receive updates about properties that fit their personal profile, all through the Zoocasa.com application on their Yahoo.ca homepage. Combining real-time listing information and mapping technology, Zoocasa.com allows users to personalize their search experience and discover community, demographic and lifestyle information to help them choose the right home.

"Our vision is for Yahoo.ca to be the best guide for Canadians for both their online and offline worlds," said Laurie Maw, director, Business Development for Yahoo! Canada. "The Zoocasa application is an important addition to Yahoo! Canada's current line-up of online apps that includes everything from Flickr and Facebook, to links to our Sports and Finance channels."

Zoocasa offers a variety of real estate search options to Canadians, including searches by region, city, price range, number of bedrooms/bathrooms and property type. Users can also enhance their decision making process by learning about their city and area of choice using online guides and maps.

"We are excited to work with Yahoo! Canada to launch a Zoocasa.com app that gives Canadians another great way to streamline their house-hunting efforts," said Butch Langlois,
