How do we know that a house is still available and not already been sold? How often is the web site updated?

Zillow's website is updated almost constantly with most changes appearing within 24 hours or less. The problem with outdated listings often comes with agents who fail to remove/update feeds to Zillow. Agents manage a lot of feeds/information so some can get missed.

Other agents leave listings up intentionally as "lost leaders". I am not a fan of that practice since I feel it is misleading. You can always enter the address in your local MLS system or double check on realtor.com to see if the house is currently listed.

Oftentimes, the information on Zillow is not directly synced with the MLS data available. It becomes incumbent on the person who uploaded the listing on Zillow to update it. There are times where a listing is left on Zillow long after the home has sold. If you are working with a competent Real Estate professional, this information would be available to you with a simple phone call. 

Best Regards

Call the pros from Zillow . Interview 2 or 3 and see what agent will work best for you . Not all realtors and buyer meet each others needs .

Contact your Realtor and ask them what the status on the home is.

Internet sites are often behind in updating property status.  As others have advised contact a real estate agent in your area or pick one from Find a Pro on this site.

Contact any agent in the area where the house is. The agent can check the MLS to see if it is available, under contract, sold or removed. You don't have to call the listing agent to find this out, any agent can check the MLS which is 100% up to date.

The best way to get the most current information is to contact the listing agent.  It can take several days to update all websites as to the current status of a property.
