To submit an offer on a Zillow listing, just realize that these listings are a combination of For Sale By Owner (FSBO) listings and listings that agents post on the MLS, which then feed onto Zillow automatically.  So your best bet is to go to the "Professionals" tab, and pick an agent that will best represent you.  One nice feature of Zillow is you can sort out agents based on the Recommendations of past clients...then go ahead and move on a property with that agent, even on the FSBO listings.

Get a recomendation from friends or family.  It has to be an agent that is licensed in the state you are purchasing the home in.  Some agents have a lic. in multiple states -called a Reciprocal  lic.

You will need an agent to represent you.  There are two types of agents -- buyer and seller.  It would be in your best interest if you were to find someone to represent just you, not you and the seller.  It's keep things clean that way.

A buyer's agent gets compensated by the proceeds of the sale of the property.  In other words, by the seller.

Good luck.

You cannot make an offer online. You must contact a local agent to make an offer. They will guide you through the process. Good Luck!!
