“Zillow advised agents to check if their MLS provides a listing feed to Zillow Group on its “MLS Checker site.”
“If a feed is available, a Zillow Group team member will be able to answer any questions and help you keep your listings on Zillow and Trulia,” the email said.
But if agents discover their MLS does not provide a direct feed to Zillow Group, the company suggested they ask their brokerage or MLS to start.
“If an MLS feed is not currently available in your market, ask your broker about setting up a free feed with Zillow Group,” the email said. “You can also reach out to your local MLS and request that they establish a feed. Please visit the Zillow Help Center for our list of MLS contact information.”
I don’t like it. Their “MLS Checker” (maybe “hit list” would be more appropriate) site links to the “contact me” page of the MLS/Association. To me the whole process is set up to make the MLS look like the bad guy. Just poor form in my opinion.
At least they are stoping short of having the agent send a “robo-email” like RPR did.
