Zillow is a worthless web site!

My boyfriend and I were interested in buying a house that was for sale on the site and got in touch with the agent who was selling the house. Well, I soon found out that the house was not for sale, it was for rent! I was furious. This is false advertisement!

Just not perfect, but not worthless.

There are plenty of other sites out there, like Realtor.com and Trulia.com and Redfin.com. Use what works best for you.

Unfortunately there are a number of agents who don't proof their ads properly.  ( This occurs everywhere, not just on Zillow ).   Perhaps they have it for sale and for rent elsewhere, and it doesn't come through properly in their data feed to Zillow.  Shame on them for not proofing their ads.  Yes, tell them they are advertising falsely.  

However, a savvy consumer knows that there are sloppy professionals out there in all fields. Therefore, Zillow offers the option to set a filter for looking for houses to cut these out by setting a minimum house price.   You didn't really expect to find a house for $1500, did you?

I'm not sure I agree with these other posts? Compared to other sites like Realtor.com, Homes.com, and Trulia.com these errors occur much more frequently. The evaluations have no ryme or reason. Just compare the questions and answers categories of other sites and they don't have nearly as many questions about changing inaccurate information and values that make no sense. With that said now that zillow and yahoo real estate have joined forces and get the most real estate traffic than any other site maybe these issues will be tackled. I suggest you report the errors and maybe they will fix it or police it better. I just reported a million dollar home in Greenwich with a value range from 154k to 665k?

I'm sorry to hear that.  Another site you might want to try is Hotpads.com.  Good Luck on your search.

If you flag the listing, Zillow will remove it. It could be an error or it could be false advertising. Either way if you report it, Zillow will take a look and either remove the listing or recategorize it as a rental.
