Will a multi-syndicated listing be duplicated? If not, what determines which source is used?

If a Realtor is using a website company that syndicates their listings to Zillow, and the agent is also using an additional listing syndication service, does the listing appear twice on Zillow? If not, how does Zillow determine which source to pull the listing data from?

1) The realtor is responsible for setting up the auto-feeds they want.
2) For each autofeed, Zillow software tries to match it to the county records data.  If it matches, it adds the information in the autofeed.
3) If there are problems finding a match (due to spelling discrepencies in the address...) it adds a new property indentification to zillow.
4) It processes auto-feeds consecutively, with no particular order, so updated information may be updated again, thus if you have conflicts of price or listing agent, or other data, it is kind of random what you get.  But if you have different typos in the address, you can end up with multiple records for the same property.

Look up autofeed in the "help" or "frequently asked questions" under "more" at the top of the screen, or under "help" at the bottom of the screen.
