You got to love Zillow. Really?

By
Real Estate Agent with West USA Realty

Zillow is piloting a new program in Phoenix that gives prospective homebuyers access to the online behemoth’s homes without appointments or even agents.

Would-be homebuyers interested in viewing those homes merely have to pull up the Zillow app, which will give them directions to the property and unlock the door when they arrive.

Thank you Zillow, we really appreciate this!

Nice of you to support the industry.

Agree William Feela . Their response is something like "Asked how Zillow ensures that homes are not damaged by unaccompanied visitors, the spokesperson said that homes are fitted with motion sensors that can capture still images. If the sensors detect movement when there shouldn’t be any, Tour it Now is disabled and the property is “flagged for investigation by the local Zillow team.”

I've heard of this program, Richard... and I'm gob-smacked. I don't understand why a homeowner would allow this.

Morning Barbara Todaro . Soon, in a neighborhood near you. 

It's the way it will be presented to the public. Less hassles (without an agent), direct to buyers, save money (no commission)....

Hi Nina Hollander . It seems our business & industry is under attack lately from all angles. It would seemingly be a good idea to all start collectively from sending our listings to be published on Zillow. If they have no content on Zillow, what will they be peddling?

Hello Richard - I wonder where the board meeting was held that thought this was a good idea.

Richard, I totally agree with that suggestion... our MLS's seem to think otherwise and don't listen to their membership.

Let's hope this is a crash and burn experiment..I can't imagine lots of Sellers wanting people to tour their homes unescorted by an agent.

I had no idea Zillow was experimenting with this concept, Richard Bazinet /MBA, CRS, ABR ... hope you keep us posted as to how this experiment is going in your area.  As Sally K. & David L. Hanson mentions above ... it's hard to imagine Sellers being comfortable with this practice.  Please ... keep us informed!

This sounds like a disaster or lawsuit waiting to happen.  Not in my market thankfully.
