Showcase Ads FAQs
Why should I advertise on Zillow?
Zillow is one of the most-visited real estate sites on the Web, with 24.4 million people visiting each month. Two-thirds of Zillow visitors plan to buy or sell a home in the next 1-2 years.

By placing an ad on Zillow, you have instant visibility in front of these potential customers. Make our traffic work for you!
How much does it cost?
Each ZIP code has a unique pricing plan, based on amount of visitors. ZIP codes with high traffic will cost more than ZIP codes with less traffic.
Is an ad view the same thing as a click?
No. An ad view is counted whenever we display your ad to someone looking at homes in a ZIP code you've targeted. This is what is known as an "impression" -- it is not the number of times someone clicks on your ad.

Unlike some sites, we allow you to include your contact information (phone number, e-mail address, and/or Web site URL) in the text of your ad, so your customers can contact you without having to click.
Where will my ads appear on the site?
Once a Zillow user searches for homes in one of the ZIP codes you specified, your ad will appear in the ad space of nearly every page throughout the site (until the user searches on a different ZIP code). The frequency that your ad displays will depend on the percentage of ad view placements you purchased -- 25, 50, 75, or 100 percent. Example of ad view percentage:
25% ad views:
Ad will appear, on average, in 1 out of every 4 pages in selected ZIP code
50% ad views:
Ad will appear, on average, in 2 of every 4 pages in selected ZIP code
75% ad views:
Ad will appear, on average, in 3 out of every 4 pages in selected ZIP code
100% ad views:
Ad will appear, on average, on every page in selected ZIP code
How many other ads will appear with mine?
At most, only one other Showcase Ad will appear next to yours.
Will mine be the only agent ad on the page?
The ads that appear with yours could be for other agents, houses for sale, or local businesses.
What can I put in my ad?
Your ad is your place to advertise your services. We believe the best way to do that is to leave the marketing to you. Each ad can accommodate a headline, photo, two lines of static text (including a phone number), and a hyperlink for a Web site or e-mail address. As long as the content of your ad complies with our Content Guidelines and Terms of Use, your ad message is up to you.
Can I update my ad after it starts running?
Absolutely. You can change the photo, text and Web site or e-mail address of the ad as frequently as you like — at no additional cost. Just click the "Edit Ad Content" link in the Ad Content section of your ad's report page.
Will my ad be reviewed?
Yes, all new or updated ads go through an editorial review to ensure that they meet our Content Guidelines and Terms of Use.
How do I renew my ad?
When an ad finishes running, a reminder will appear next to the ad listing on your My Zillow page. To reactivate the same ad, open your ad's report page and click on the "Buy Ad Again" button. You will then have a chance to make any updates to the ad's content before repurchasing.
