Zillow Advice: Selling Process - My agent won't update my listing, as the owner, is there a way I can do it myself? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/My-agent-won%27t-update-my-listing-as-the-owner-is-there-a-way-I-can-do-it-myself/517039/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate Your Realtor should be doing ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/My-agent-won%27t-update-my-listing-as-the-owner-is-there-a-way-I-can-do-it-myself/517039/ Your Realtor should be doing all of these sort of things at a minimum for you! &nbsp;Hmm I would ask their Broker if you're not getting any response from your agent. &nbsp;<br/><br/>Hope your experience gets better -- Good luck -- Shayla Twit, Sarasota FL Realtor Sat, 30 Nov 2013 23:22:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/My-agent-won%27t-update-my-listing-as-the-owner-is-there-a-way-I-can-do-it-myself/517039/ 2013-11-30T23:22:00Z Try to find out why your ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/My-agent-won%27t-update-my-listing-as-the-owner-is-there-a-way-I-can-do-it-myself/517039/ Try to find out why your agent isn't posting the pictures that you want.&nbsp; If it is that they simply don't want to put in a time, you need another agent.&nbsp; However, there may be a strategy behind it.&nbsp; A good agent will have a great eye for photographs.&nbsp; There may be something in your house that you want photographed, but they see something that would show up in the picture that would be a negative to the sale of your house.&nbsp; If your agent has a good explanation that is related to the marketing of your home, I would take that in to consideration.

Too many photos can turn some buyers off, especially for a small house. Send the photos to your agent and ask why she/he isn't posting them. You can also fire your agent at any time for non-performance. &nbsp;I'm a managing broker of my own firm, but those for larger firms are probably just as non-responsive as their agents or too busy for you. &nbsp;Just talk to your agent, and then get a new one if you feel you need to. Don't let them bully you into keeping the listing with them either! &nbsp;.. just got a contract.. better go!

The managing brokers role is to protect the reputation of the company, so their best interest is for you to have a good experience and for your home to sell.<br/>&nbsp;<br/>I hope this helps, Mike Wed, 30 Oct 2013 04:58:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/My-agent-won%27t-update-my-listing-as-the-owner-is-there-a-way-I-can-do-it-myself/517039/ 2013-10-30T04:58:00Z The agent controls the feed ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/My-agent-won%27t-update-my-listing-as-the-owner-is-there-a-way-I-can-do-it-myself/517039/ The agent controls the feed Zillow receives and therefore has to make the changes.

Well If your agent isn't willing to upload more photos what is their excuse for denying such an easy task? That sounds so odd!! But.. nothing and no one surprises me in this business.&nbsp;<br/><br/>Good luck communicating your needs to your Realtor, and I hate to recommend firing them but if they are not working in the best interest to sell your property then you may have to do what you have to do.&nbsp;<br/><br/>Unfortunately your agent will have to upload the photos for you. <br/><br/>Again, Good Luck!! &nbsp;&nbsp; Mon, 28 Oct 2013 20:19:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/My-agent-won%27t-update-my-listing-as-the-owner-is-there-a-way-I-can-do-it-myself/517039/ 2013-10-28T20:19:00Z It seems odd that they are ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/My-agent-won%27t-update-my-listing-as-the-owner-is-there-a-way-I-can-do-it-myself/517039/ It seems odd that they are not complying to your wishes. &nbsp;Unfortunately, there are plenty of agents out there that don't give their clients great service, and often it's the big name agents. &nbsp;Perhaps you need an agent who will take better care of your personal needs.

Unless you have asked this agent to do these kind of things 20 times already then it should not be a problem for them to make these changes.

You cannot change the listing on Zillow. If your broker uploaded more photos into MLS and they are not showing up on Zillow yet, your broker can contact Zillow directly and request the update. Zillow is pretty responsive. Did your broker give you a reason as to why they don't want to do the update?
