How does my house that is for sale get onto Zillow?

My house went on the market last Thursday.  It was not on Zillow today (4 days later) as for sale.  I tried to post myself but now it says "for sale by owner."  I have a real estate agent I am working with and want it listed under him.

Please tell me how I can do this!

Contact your agent asap. Most large companies automatically syndicate to sites like this.

I would suggest talking to your Realtor and making sure they have listed it to get more exposure!

Listings get syndicated through company's website. If they don't because not all companies offer that, the broker can put the listing on Postlets and that way it will get send to Zillow and other websites.
Talk to your broker about his marketing plan.
Best of luck in selling your home!

Really must refer to your agent. At Coldwell Banker, we connect with up to 700 websites.

Your agent should know if his/her MLS syndicates with Zillow.  (Most don't.)  Advertising on non-MLS websites is an important part of your agent's job (i.e. that is what you are paying them the big bucks for if your house sells)

The first thing to do is to cancel the FSBO listing because the agent can't get it on Zillow if you have an active FSBO.  

Then the agent can either list it manually, use a third party feed provider such as postlets, or establish a listing feed to Zillow.

Are you saying that your agent doesn't know how to do this?

Your house can get on to Zillow several different ways once listed with your broker. First through the Multiple listing service.  Agreements have been signed to allow promotion of listings to distribution to websites like Realtor.com, Trulia, Zillow, Homes.com (as so forth).  Some MLS this is automatic, in others, the brokerage opts in.  Also, depending on your broker that you listed with, some brokerages (major national brands) have special contracts that allow promotion of their listings to all the major real estate site quickly from time of listing.  The distribution of the "listing" goes out over the internet like electricity down a line to promote you listing.

One of the greatest things you can do on Zillow, is claim your listing, and give more information to would be buyers by posting additional photos or details on your property as far as upgrades or special features.
