Zillow (and other sites like Trulia, Yahoo, Hotpads, etc) pulls the information from MLS. The agent is required by the MLS to update the MLS profile - but it doesn't always reflect on Zillow.&nbsp; <br/><br/>You should NOT trust Zillow in terms of accuracy and up-to-date information. If you have an agent, ask him or her to set you up on automatic listing updates for properties within your search criteria. <br/><br/>Good Luck!

Let me tell you a bit about what's going on, on the agent's side of the table (speaking from personal experience): I had a listing last year that was finally put onto Zillow after a long delay (was already in escrow by that time). I couldn't make the status update myself (to mark the house "Sold")&nbsp;for some strange reason that made no real&nbsp;sense to me (my account, my listing, why not under my control?).<br/><br/>I emailed, posted an online query for Zillow, and spoke directly with Customer Service, asking that the listing status be corrected. I noted that the property was sold, for how much, what day the close of escrow occurred. To this day, I have a floating listing on Zillow that STILL shows up as "Active". It is really frustrating. It makes me - as an agent - look incompetent. I pride myself on being anything BUT incompetent!

Agents are either lazy or want the listing to continue to show so that it appears that they have more listings--perhaps..does a listing need to be removed or just listed as sold?
