Cameron,

That's actually not correct. Zillow doesn't scrape any sites. We get our listings from feeds that come to us from thousands of brokerages and listings syndicators, and we run those feeds daily. When we have stale listings on the site it's because the listings are still (incorrectly) in the feed from one of those providers. Our listings quality is very good, though I agree with you that MLS sites are also very good.



Also, heads-up that it's against our policy to do what you're doing in the signature block of your comment -- linking to "Corona Real Estate Agent" like that is clever SEO but it's against our policy and one of our moderators might come and edit it out. Just a warning.

Unfortunately, Zillow is a scraper site.  Meaning they collect their information from other places on the web and regurgitate the info on Zillow.com.  If the places they collect information from are incorrect, then the information herein is then also incorrect.

Best to get the information from a real estate professional, or the actual [link removed by moderator due to self-promotion] for your area.
