Trulia / Zillow Syndication Dilemma & Fix..

posted by Brian G. Walsh   [ updated ]

For those of you who haven't heard Zillow will not be renewing their agreement with Listhub (our syndication vendor) on April 7th.  Zillow has just went through the acquisition of Trulia and there is the threat of Trulia being cut off by Listhub as well.  Here is a descent article explaining what is happening.  Some see this as good, some see it as bad and some don't care.  There are certain things I don't like about syndication but I do not want to be a party to not being on these sites.  With all of the challenges we were having I switched our office from RE/MAX's syndication to Listhub a while ago. Listhub has been more dependable and timely but will now have this void so to fend off future disaster I will be switching the Trulia & Zillow syndication back to RE/MAX.  Hoping this won't present a challenge on the short or long term but if it does then we will have to switch to another independent vendor.  You won't need to do anything to effectuate this change.  I would ask that you not change any of the syndication settings in RE/MAX Mainstreet as I will take care of all of that once I decide to cutover.  Because of the Trulia thing mentioned in article it will probably be sooner than later. Strap in..  More to come..

We need your help..

When status changes are required on one of your listings please instruct staff accordingly.  Expirations and solds take care of themselves but contingent, pending and reactivation statuses and the like will only be handled if staff are told to do so.  Transactional documents sent to the front desk or the pipeline inferring a status change will not signal staff to to execute status changes.  Thanks!
