Where have all the Zillow listings gone?
For those consumers that rely on Zillow as their primary source to find homes for sale, there has always been an issue with accuracy. Zillow previously relied on “syndicated” listings through an agreement with company called ListHub. Since there wasn’t a direct connection to the original source of those listings, meaning the local MSL, there was inherently a delay in the information being updated.
But that agreement expired on April 7th, so now most (but not all) of the homes listed by REALTORs have been removed. At a minimum, those that remaine aren’t being updated at all.
That leaves Zillow with mostly homes listed on their site by homeowners themselves. This means the Make Me Move or For Sale By Owner categories now dominate the listings that appear on the website.
Since this website utilizes an Internet Data Exchange (IDX) agreement to access listing information directly from the Denver MLS, this website is not effected by the changes at Zillow. Here, the consumer will continue to receive up to date information on homes for sale.
Not only does this website have all the listings the consumer wants, but also provides additional detail on each property. Tabs for each property’s Walk Score or a list of local school rankings provided by GreatSchools are easily accessed below the property description.
