MEMBER ADVISORY: Zillow and Third Party Vendor Feeds

Colorado Springs, CO (June 22, 2017) - On June 20th many of our participants and subscribers received an email from Zillow Group announcing the company would no longer accept third-party vendor feeds from Real Estate Digital, ListingsMagic.com, RealBird and AgentMarketing.com. RSC wanted to provide some clarification on the impact of this change as it appears that it was sent to all premier agents, regardless of how REALTORS® choose to syndicate to Zillow.

The named vendors are used by some of you to provide your listings to Zillow. Zillow decided to no longer accept feeds from these companies, with the exception of ListingsMagic.com which had already decided to terminate its agreement with Zillow prior to this announcement. Hopefully, any of you using LIstingsMagic.com had already been informed by ListingsMagic.com of its decision to terminate its relationship with Zillow. Only those of you using the previously mentioned services as an IDX provider should be effected by Zillow’s decision. You should not be impacted by this decision if your listings are sent via your franchise, you use a different IDX vendor, or do not currently syndicate to Zillow.

RSC is pleased to announce that we are working on a solution for use by our participants and subscribers who use an IDX (third-party feed) or don’t have an IDX vendor to send listing information to Zillow. RSC believes this solution will meet the needs of our REALTOR® members wanting to syndicate with Zillow. RSC also believes it should be the choice of our brokers and agents on where to syndicate their listings and is committed to providing workable solutions to that end. With Zillow’s cooperation, RSC hopes to announce the solution in the very near future.

Please call Pikes Peak RSC support @ 719-635-5040 if you need further clarification
