declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to the
Registration Rights Agreement (which may or may not occur by May 17, 2001), each
Seller understands that (a) the Homestore Shares to be received by such Seller
hereunder are characterized as "restricted securities" under the federal
securities laws inasmuch as such securities are being acquired from Buyer in a
transaction not involving a public offering and that under such laws and
applicable regulations such securities may be resold without registration under
the Securities Act only in certain limited circumstances and (b) the
certificate(s) representing the Homestore Shares shall bear the following
legends:

     THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE HAVE NOT BEEN REGISTERED
     UNDER THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED.  THE SHARES REPRESENTED BY
     THIS CERTIFICATE MAY NOT BE SOLD OR TRANSFERRED IN THE ABSENCE OF SUCH
     REGISTRATION OR A WRITTEN OPINION OF COUNSEL, REASONABLY ACCEPTABLE TO THE
     ISSUER IN FORM AND SUBSTANCE, THAT SUCH TRANSFER IS EXEMPT FROM THE
     REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS OF THE SECURITIES ACT OF 1933.

     THE SECURITIES REPRESENTED BY THIS CERTIFICATE ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN
     RESTRICTIONS ON TRANSFER AND VOTING CONTAINED IN STOCKHOLDER AGREEMENT
     WHICH MAY BE OBTAINED AT NO COST BY WRITTEN REQUEST OF THE HOLDER OR RECORD
     OF THIS SECURITY TO THE SECRETARY OF THE CORPORATION AT THE PRINCIPAL
     OFFICES OF THE CORPORATION.

          The Sellers must request that Homestore remove the legend set forth
above from the certificates evidencing the Homestore Shares or issue to such
holder new certificates therefor free of such legend in connection with the
Shelf Registration.

               3.5  Suitability Standards.
                    ---------------------

          (a)  Each Seller is acquiring the Homestore Shares for investment
               purposes only and solely for his own accounts and not with a view
               to, or for resale in connection with, the distribution or
               disposition thereof, except for such distributions or
               dispositions which are effected in compliance with the Securities
               Act;

          (b)  Each Seller understand that the Homestore Shares have not been
               registered under the Securities Act or under any state securities
               or "blue sky" laws;

          (c)  Each Seller will not directly or indirectly offer, sell,
               transfer, assign, pledge, hypothecate or otherwise dispose of, or
               solicit any offers to purchase or otherwise acquire or take a
               pledge of, any of the Homestore Shares, except in accordance with
               the Securities Act and all applicable state securities or "blue
               sky" laws;

          (d)  The financial situation of each Seller is such that he can afford
               to bear the economic risk of holding the Homestore Shares for an
               indefinite period of time and suffer complete loss of his
               investment in the Homestore Shares;

          (e)  Each Seller has such knowledge and experience in financial and
               business matters that he is capable of evaluating the merits and
               risks relating to his investment in the Homestore Shares;

          (f)  Each Seller acknowledge that the Homestore Shares must be held
               indefinitely and each Seller must continue to bear the economic
               risk of his investments in the Homestore Shares until the
               Homestore Shares are subsequently registered under the Securities
               Act or an exemption from such registration is available;

          (g)  Each Seller understands that the Homestore Shares represent a
               speculative investment which involves a high degree of risk of
               loss of his investment therein;

          (h)  In making his decision to receive the Homestore Shares under this
               Agreement, each Seller has relied upon independent investigations
               made by his and, to the extent believed by him 

                                       4

 
               to be appropriate, his representatives, including his own
               professional, tax and other advisors;

          (i)  In making his decision to receive the Homestore Shares under this
               Agreement, each Seller has not received or relied upon any
               information relating the Homestore from Buyer and each Seller has
               relied solely upon the public filings of Homestore to evaluate
               the risks associated with ownership of the Homestore Shares; and

          (j)  All information that each Seller has provided to Buyer concerning
               himself and his financial position is true, complete and correct
               as of the date of this Agreement.
