Why is Zillow Down, Does Anybody Know?

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

I saw something come through my cellphone from Inman that says Zillow was down and is now back up, but I can't edit any of my listings nor enter any Coming Soon listings. Ordinarily this would not be a big deal, my not being able to get into Zillow but today it is a huge freakin' deal. Because today I want to showcase an incredible, one-in-a-lifetime-opportunity to buy a waterfront home that is designed so beautifully it will make you will feel like you're always on vacation and living in Venice and I can't do it. Waahh.

It's better than it was earlier because I couldn't sign in at all early this morning. But it's not back to operational status yet. At least not for this Sacramento REALTOR. What happened to Zillow, my beloved Zillow, that other agents complain about all the time but which I adore?

Is there really such a property in the Sacramento area?  I though that was well inland.

We have rivers and lakes, Jeff. We're not exactly in the middle of the Sahara Desert, although come ask me about our weather in August when it's 115.

Hmmm.  News to me.  I guess even the biggest online companies can have technical difficulty.

I noticed that too this morning. I went to update my profile and noticed that Zillow was down which is very odd.

Jay T from Zillow Group here. Believe me, there are teams of people all over it. Hope to have everything back to normal soon.

It's a big, giant, complex site. Sometimes systems go down. Second time in the 3+ years I've been here. No website has 100% uptime.

The message cracked me up.  Maintenance?  yeah, no.  Maintenance is what you do to keep from having down time.  Facebook has more users than any other website and very little down time.

Morning Elizabeth I was surprised to see someone from Zillow actually stopped and made a comment.  Apparently they do listen....

I wasn't aware of it Elizabeth, but it looks like the big guns in Zillow are working on it.

Thanks, Jay. Zillow has been so reliable that I never expected a behemoth like Zillow to succumb to forces of, um, stuff that happens to everybody else. You look like you've lost a considerable amount of weight since you left real estate, Jay, or am I thinking of somebody else?

Lost over 80 pounds since my heart attack three years ago, Elizabeth!  Gained 15 back, but still a thinner, stronger, faster guy than I was before! Well, maybe not faster, but thinner for sure!

Didn't take is as insensitive at all Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents. I'm quite pleased with my weight loss and health changes and happy to talk about it. If I can help one person get healthier and avoid what I went through, then I'm a happy camper.

I'm with you all the way, Jay Thompson . I dramatically changed my diet a year ago and dropped 25 pounds just like that. Veggies, fruits, whole grain, little meat, but fortunately, knock on wood, I had no health issue to drive it. Glad to see you recovered. When we get to that certain age, we can't carry on like we're 25.
