For-sale listings to roll out on Zillow's mobile app, web portal
Last week, U.S.-based online real estate marketplace Zillow announced that thousands of Canadian for-sale listings have finally gone live on its mobile app and website.
Zillow’s data-sharing deals with multiple Canadian real estate firms represent more than 50,000 listings, and these will be rolled out on a continuous basis.
The arrangement will make the properties visible and accessible to the marketplace’s more than 100 million non-U.S. visitors per year.
“It’s an exciting time at Zillow and we’re thrilled to start expanding our listings coverage outside the U.S. and provide the millions of home shoppers who use Zillow every day an easy way to see Canadian homes for sale,” Zillow chief industry development officer Errol Samuelson said.
“Zillow provides unprecedented global exposure for Canadian listings on a reliable and trusted platform home shoppers love. We’re excited about the momentum we’re making in Canada, and with every new Canadian partnership we build, the home shopping experience on Zillow will only get better,” Samuelson added.
Zillow users will be able to view every Canadian for-sale listing’s price, description, photos, and other relevant facts. Interest would-be buyers can also search for properties by postal code, city, or province.
