The listings are updated through Postlets which are then fed to Zillow in real time.  They are updated continually.  I know the listings are syndicated through multiple sources.

Since FSBO people can list their own property here, that is not on an MLS, the listed properties here can be very old and out of date sometimes if not updated by the sellers. I have been asked about listings a few times from people on Zillow and 90% of them are old listings that have sold months ago but must still be on here somewhere. Nothing beats contacting a local Realtor and having them feed a really serious buyer listings that are current.

Listing feeds to Zillow are updated at minimum every 24 to 48 h, often more frequently.   However, the accuracy of the information on Zillow depends on the listing accuracy at the source (which is the responsibility of the agents and.or brokerages).   FSBOs are also responsible for the accuracy of their listings,.

Don't count on Zillow updating anything. They obtain their listing information from a variety of sources, and individual agents. Each source send updates various times a day.  Ihave seen some listings on Zillow and Trulia not be updated for weeks. 
As always, it's best to seek an agent knowledgable in the area you are looking and let them help you find what you are looking for.  We have the most accurate up to date information possible.
