Last Chance to Pre-Fund Your Zillow Account and Get 25% Discount

The deadline to fund your Zillow Mortgage Marketplace account is this Wednesday, January 13, 2010.  That's only 48 hours from now!

Lenders who do not have funded accounts after January 13 will not be able to submit quotes or receive contacts from borrowers.  

Lenders can fund their accounts at any time; however, those who fund prior to noon (12 pm PST) on January 13 will get 25% off all contacts they receive through February 28, 2010.    

Pricing for customer-initiated contacts will begin to adjust over the next several weeks, as the market demand gets incorporated into the pricing model.  The pricing system is dynamic, driven by lender demand for quoting various loan requests.  We expect most contact prices to remain at $0 for the first few weeks, with more noticeable adjustments occurring after this initial period.  Remember, you won't be charged to quote; you only pay when borrowers contact you.

To fund your account, visit Lender Home, or contact our mortgage team at mortgagesales@zillow.com or 877-661-3171.  A minimum of $250 is required to set up an account.  Unused account balances can be refunded at any time.
Thanks for using Zillow Mortgage Marketplace.

The 25% discount is off each contact.  Once pricing ramps up you will be able to see the discount in your transaction history and contact details.

What are we getting 25% off from?  

January 13 will get 25% off all contacts they receive through February 28, 2010.  

We expect most contact prices to remain at $0 for the first few weeks, with more noticeable adjustments occurring after this initial period.  Remember, you won't be charged to quote; you only pay when borrowers contact you.



Are the people who pre-funded there accounts going to have the discount extended?

You will get charged the stated contact price if a borrower decides to contact you about the quote you submitted on Zillow Mortgage Marketplace.


Mike, is there a reason why you would not be responding to a contact?


If the lender has been contacted for the given loan request ever, they will not be charged a second time.

I think I answered all your questions, if not please let me know...

By that I mean the same consumer. Example - one consumer asks for 20 different fee quotes via emails? Will Zillow charge for each of these? Will there be cap on number of contacts a consumer makes on a single quote?

Sorry for not catching the answer to this if it's already been asked, but will I get charged for contacts I don't respond to? And will Zillow collect for every request for contact made by a consumer?

Gregorio to answer your question the cut off to receive the 25% discount is today at 12:00 pm PST.  If you not have a funded account, you will not be able to quote once our afternoon release takes place, exact time TBD, but is likely anywhere from 12 noon to 5:00 pm PST today.

Are you kidding?? Here is some 1st grade math. 25% of $0 = $0. She is trying to explain the price will be $0 for the first few weeks until zillow gets the hang of what leads will be in demand. From there they can start setting market prices that will change with that demand. So you will get 25% off when they "start" charging.

How many times do they have to explain this? It was funny to bust balls the first time around but now it's juvenile.

My $2 worth....tired of seeing .02. Inflation has hit Zillow

It's been said many times $0-$100. $0 being my emphasis. If many are going to be $0, then why do we need to fund an account?

You will still receive contacts from people that click on your profile to email you or call you using the 888 number that we have provided for you if you do not fund your account by January 13th.  These will still show up in your transaction history as a free contact. 

You will just not have the ability to submit quotes or receive contacts from borrowers within Zillow Mortgage Marketplace.

Clarification needed:

If we do not fund, I understand we cannot quote or receive contact from a quote ... but ...

1) Will we still receive contact from someone that clicks our profile and calls the number you put there or is that disabled if we don't fund. (Please note that I am asking about contacts NOT from quotes.)

2) If someone clicks on the "contact me" in our profiles (not from a quote but directly) Is this disabled if we do not fund the account?

I will await your answer before I ask #3.


Thanks.

The 25% off discount will be from January 13th through February 28th, the first few weeks of which we expect that most prices will remain at $0.

Andrea, so lenders will be receiving 25% of zero for the first few weeks?  There goes the advantage and teaser to fund early as 25% of nothing is nothing.

Lenders will receive 25% off all contacts received through February28th 2010.  As far as expected prices, the pricing system is dynamic and will be based on market demand.

If you prefer to not fund before the deadline of January 13th, just know that you will not be able to submit quotes or receive contacts from borrowers on Zillow Mortgage Marketplace.  Also we expect most contact prices during this initial period to remain at $0 for the first few weeks.  So it is to your advantage to fund, especially since you have control over the max contact price you are willing to pay for a contact as well as the ability to request your unused account balance to be refunded to you at any time.

25% off of what?  Zillow has never published any expected prices..  I will not be funding my account until I am able to view the costs associated. The 25% off teaser does not rationalize funding at this time.
