I avoid Zillow as much as possible. My listings get posted there with a virtual tour and photos... and that's about all I am willing to do with them.

I am with Nina Hollander - and wonder ... is it really free when Zillow was paid for the video?

Yes, good for Zillow.  Not necessarily so good for you.

You can do a video/slide show ad direct on FB without having to go through Zillow. I am running one right now, cost me $20.00 and getting very good results.

Zillow SUCKS!

If you support it you're part of the problem with destroying local real estate markets and not helping agents who know their markets

Z doesn't know anything about real estate - they exist for advertising dollars only and agents keep feeding the monster

Disgraceful

Sure you do.  But the leads are grabbed by zillow to be sold to someone.  How does that not cost you money?

Sounds good, but cant you just post it to fb for free yourself rather than posting it to zillow first.

Richard, 

 

It looks like you found a group that isn't very Zillow-friendly.  

Have you had some leads and closings from the videos?  

I think we would all like to know if this has a posivite impact for you, or if it is just a "Shiny new" feature.

I've seen the video tour option on the listing page, but you have to do it right there with their app, you can't link to a youtube video.  Strongly dislike that.
