Why does it take ages for Zillow to obtain information?

Are they not utilizing any automation at all?  A place near me sold last fall, and was still listed as 'For Sale' on Zillow for at least 5 months.  Now, another house is on the market and has been for a while, but Zillow doesn't know about it.

One would assume that Zillow is, at least, picking up an MLS feed, but that doesn't seem to be the case.  Are they driving around neighborhoods looking for yard signs?  It's hard to imagine a system-design that would take months to process a sale.

You are absolutely right.  Most MLSs (of the approximately 900 in the US) have chosen not to syndicate with Zillow.    Therefore, the timeliness of listings is up to the agent and/or their broker.
