I just asked for info on a home that's been OFFthe market for 5 mnths, but shows 2 days on here?why

Zillow use to be the most up-to-date place to look for homes, but something has happened to their updating.  I just saw a "new" rental in OH, contracted the agent, who informed us that property has not been available for over 5 months. The MLS number is no longer showing in their MLS.  What's up with this?  We look to you for reliable information!!!

Many agents put listings out on the internet and don't go through and carefully clean up after a property is no longer on the market.   Zillow doesn't pull from the MLS, but gets feeds from other sites.   This is a major problem, and Zillow has a team working on how to decrease the issue even though it is ultimately an agent issue.

When looking on Zillow for rentals, I'd suggest sorting by the "days on Zillow" available under "more filters".   Those that have been there more than a week or two are likely to be left overs

I did contract the agent, which is how I found out it's off the market.  She didn't do anything to update her listing on Zillow, So Zillow got it from some where.

Listing updates are the responsibility of the listing agent, not of Zillow. If you contact an agent from Zillow, he or she can assist you with all current listings linked directly to the Multiple Listing Service.
