Zillow Agreement Ends Today

Zillow Agreement Ends Today

Today is an important day in the REALTOR® community and the Traverse City Area Association of Realtors as Zillow & Trulia will no longer receive any of our members listing data directly from our MLS. As a buyer or seller reading this it might not have that much of an impact on you while you search for real estate in Leelanau County or the Traverse City area but it can be frustrating to learn that some national websites that you are used to using won’t have all of the most up to date real estate information on them, and you might not even realize it. Old listings that have already been entered will still appear on these websites but new listings will no longer appear on Trulia and Zillow.

Real estate is and always has been local. Our association, the Traverse Area Association of Realtors provides the most accurate and reliable data because it is regulated and held accountable by hundreds of our association members every single day. The updates to the listing data to the local MLS and www.Realtor.com  is instantaneous and those 2 sites are always my recommendation for anyone searching for real estate online, whether they are my client or someone else’s. You can access this information by clicking our “Search The MLS” tab above or by visiting www.Realtor.com or using their mobile app!
