Zillow to Discontinue Manual Postings
Important Information for those of you manually entering your listings on Zillow.com
The Zillow Group announced that it will no longer accept manually entered listings on Zillow.com or Trulia.com from brokers and agents effective May 1, 2017. If you want your listings to appear on these sites after May 1st, you must use either a broker data feed (if your broker has set up its own with Zillow Group) or the NorthstarMLS Zillow Group data feed.
Zillow will continue to accept manual entry of listings from homeowners directly (FSBO), and pre-market “Coming Soon” listings.
For more information on the NorthstarMLS data feed, please see:
- Our original announcement from 2015 describing the favorable terms we negotiated and how your broker can opt in;
- A video showing brokers how to opt in to the NorthstarMLS data feed;
- An important reminder that your listings will not go to Zillow through the NorthstarMLS data feed if you have selected “No” for allowing auto valuation display (page 3 of the SFR listing input form).
Your listings will not automatically go out to Zillow through the NorthstarMLS data feed unless your broker chooses to particpate using the opt-in tool. If you do not know whether your brokerage participates, ask your broker or contact our Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or Zillow Group at LA@zillowgroup.com.
