The ABoR MLS will begin a direct data feed option to Zillow Group no later than Monday, May 1. Brokers will have the option to send their listings to Zillow Group (which bundles together Zillow.com, Trulia.com, and HotPads.com).
A broker can already go into the Matrix and opt-in their office to send listings to Zillow Group, and these listings will start to appear on those sites no later than May 1. ABoR will only send listings to Zillow Group with a broker’s consent. Agents will NOT be able to opt-in to the Zillow Group feed, should their broker choose not to opt-in to it.
How Can a Broker Opt-In to Send Their Listings to Zillow Group?
Follow these steps in Matrix:
- Go to Add/Edit
- Enter your Office ID* in the “Quick Modify Office ID” box under the Office section; click Edit
- Select Office Syndication Form
- Select/deselect the check boxes for the websites that you’d like to send your listings to
- Click Submit Office
*Brokers with multiple offices will need to follow this process with each office's Office ID
ABoR worked to execute a direct-feed agreement that would more adequately protect the quality of the data in our market and display listings in a manner consistent with our data integrity standards.
