How to I claim my home and edit details?

Answer

You should be able to pull up your address and then edit the details. You will be asked if you are the owner of the property and just answer yes.I just updated personal information on my own property with no problems.

What is a short sale?

Answer

A short sale as defined in reference to Real Estate is when the Mortgage holder is willing to accept less than what is owed on the note.Most homeowners in fear of Foreclosure and loosing their home can generally contact their lender and ask if they are willing to negotiate a "short sale" on the real property. If you are a homeowner and are possibly facing foreclosure because you have fallen behind on your mortgage payments please contact your lenders loss mitigation department and request what is commonly referred to as a short sale package. In my dealings with "Short Sales" I have found that some lenders have these types of documents while others just request a hardship letter and a listing agreement. Offers are then negotiated with the "seller" and then must be approved by the lender. That is why sometimes you will see verbage such as "possible short sale, requires 3rd party approval"I hope this information proves to be helpful.

Thank You Richard! It is only 1 listing that is not showing up. All the others are auto feeding to the site so that is where I am confused! So when I tried to manually input it wanted to charge me. I will get with my tech guys tomorrow.Thank You again for responding!!!

I have a question regarding the lot size of the listing I entered for my in laws.

Answer

I have a similar issue with a listing also in reference to the number of bathrooms. Zillow insists on 4 and its only 3.5. I just make sure that it is explained in the description so there are no misunderstandings. Since you have certified documentation to show the "actual"lot size just detail that in the description. Hopefully that will help

MLS ID

Answer

Hi Jerrod,I am not quite sure what you mean by a ZID (Zillow ID?) number for I have not seen one.  In researching to answer your question I saw what you meant by an ID number in the browser but I think that may be specific to whomever posted the question.It seems searching by address would be the best way to go and as far as the bank is concerned you should be able to provide "your" local MLS# for their information.

where do I find statistics on the number of views of a listing of mine

Answer

Hi Pam,Once you log in go to the My Zillow tab.Click on account settings on the right side and make sure you have this box check marked:Listing report: Monitor and manage activity on your listings.Once that is done you should start receiving Listing Activity reports in your email. It will show how many times your property has been viewed.I am then able to forward to my clients which they are very happy with!Hope this helps!
