House keeps getting listed for sale by mistake

This house was for sale and listed on Zillow.  I bought it.  The agent removed the Zillow listing.  A month later, it was listed for sale again on Zillow.  I contacted the agent, and he removed the listing.  Now 2 days later, it is again listed for sale on Zillow. 

This is clearly a mistake, and I think a bug in the software.

Is there anyway to contact someone at Zillow?  They offer no contact information on the website anywhere.  I am irritated and concerned they do not post any way to contact them.

Hi Joshua -

Can you please verify the address in question so we can further check the source of the listing?

From your description, most likely the listing has not been removed from a data feed, so each time it is removed manually the data feed repopulates it as "for sale" at the next refresh time.  

You can find out where it is coming from by opening your property details page, scrolling to the bottom and clicking on the "listing source".

Zillow doesn't control the listing sources (and it isn't a bug in their software), it is the agents who've put info in and don't know how to get rid of it in all of the data feed streams.   The agent has to spend the time to learn this critical skill.   Yes, it can be tricky.  (Agents often blame Zillow, even though the agents are the ones who control the data feed.  Don't let the agent pull the wool over your eyes!)

Note: if it is appearing on Zillow, it is most likely appearing on other internet sites that list it for sale, so it must be corrected at the source.
