Leslie: Me again. I just talked with the flat-fee service, and they stopped the automated data feed last week. On listhub (which appears to be the problem), the old price of 252,000 is still in the system, and won't go away. On zillow, the even older price of 261,500 is still in the system and won't go away. The flat-fee realtor and I are at our wits' end. There seems to be no way to remove *or* correct the zillow listing or the listhub listing. Again, neither of us is allowed access to the zillow listing, and the new price from the automated feed clearly hasn't been accepted (not even the just-previous price). The flat-fee realtor says that the MLS posting goes to listhub which then goes to other websites like zillow. Zillow seems to be the only one that is "frozen" in this way though. Thanks for any help! Best, Susan
I posted my FSBO on zillow way back in March. Later I obtained a flat-fee MLS and realtor.com posting for my FSBO. In late August or early September when I made a price change, the MLS system automatically overrode my own post, and my house was listed incorrectly as "for sale by agent." Both the flat-fee agent and I tried to fix this. What happened is that the old listing is now back to a FSBO, but neither I nor the agent is allowed access to the listing; it's "frozen." The old price, now way too high, is still there, a serious problem. Please, help me to fix this and restore my access. Thank you, Susan1326 SW 104th CourtMiami, FL
Zillow staff: This is my FSBO, but it got "hijacked" a month ago and I have been unable to reclaim the listing over the past week, when I discovered the problem. When I try to update the listing, I get a message stating that a realty has control. That realty is providing a flat-fee MLS listing for me, and does *not* represent me. Their MLS and realtor.com listing update got automatically sent to Zillow (four months after I created the zillow listing myself), and my listing got removed. Now neither I nor the realty can change the listing. Please give me control over my listing again or, if it would be easier, remove it and let me create a new one. Note that the price is now 252,000, and has been for a week. Thank you, Susan Schneidersschneider7@juno.com1326 SW 104 CtMiami, FL 33174
Follow-up: It's apparently the MLS folks who are the problem. They changed their system this summer so that all MLS postings that go to the publicly available realtor.com also go to websites like zillow.com--and all as "agented" even when they're FSBOs. The industry needs to pressure the MLS to fix this error on their part. Any suggestions?
I don't see any way to contact the zillow staff, so I'll post this here. I am selling my house as a FSBO, and I have it listed on the MLS through a flat-fee service. Recently, my FSBO posting on zillow.com got hijacked by the flat-fee agent's software package, so my home is now incorrectly listed as for sale by agent (and with the whole posting changed from what I'd set up). I can find no way to change it back, and the flat-fee service has not been able to find a way to fix this. Any help welcome. Thanks, Susan
