RealTracs Solutions® received notification on September 16, 2014 from a Zillow representative that its soon to be modified data feed will not be accepted, effective September 23, 2014.
The representative stated that Zillow would reject any feed that did not have complete data; however, it was indicated they would be willing to negotiate a contract for a direct data feed that “addresses” RealTracs’ concerns and the brokers’ needs – with “some stipulations”.
There were no details or guarantees on what that meant or what the requirements would be.
Zillow’s decision will terminate the incoming data feed originating from RealTracs through Point2 Agent, Threewide (ListHub), and potentially other syndication companies with an aggregation contract with RealTracs.
The announcement by Zillow will not affect RealTracs’ decision to move forward with the modification of the data feed for public portals, which goes in to effect September 22, 2014.
Please note: RealTracs Participants with questions regarding Zillow’s decision to reject the RealTracs feed should contact the company directly to express their concerns. Zillow’s customer service is available by calling 1-206-470-7000, Option 5, or via an online feedback form found at http://www.zillow.com/myzillow/EmailCustomerService.htm.
