How to Import your past Real Estate SALES and LISTINGS into Zillow?
I heard about this via Ross Hair at REM so I checked it out this week.
I called my Zillow Rep, Travis Roberts, or Travisr@zillow.com.
I was referred to him by our very own Active Rain Blogger Extraordinaire, Margaret Rome.
He promptly emailed back these instructions:
Introducing: Past Sales on Your Zillow Profile
Giving consumers the ability to see past transactions on both the buy and sell side can be an important consideration in the agent selection process. It's important that you as the agent of record have the ability to add these past sales to your Zillow profile.
It's easy to add past sales to your profile. Just log into Zillow, visit "Agent Hub" and under "Profile," go to the "Past Sales " tab. All editing is done on this page. In some cases, you will also receive an email from Zillow asking you to confirm additional past listing sale information.
We're Here to Help You!
Much like getting reviews, we believe posting past sales is a key to your success as a Premier Agent. Watch this video to get started or simply call your account manager with any questions.
What I then learned?
They are happy to enter your past sales data for you for a limited time. They need the following fields:
- Property Address (including ZIP)
- Sold Date
- Sale Price
- Who you represented (Seller, Buyer or Both)
If you have an Excel spreadsheet or other document, email it to email@example.com. If it's a Google spreadsheet, just send us an email at that same address and they'll get back in touch with you to arrange access.
OR, in Matrix in the DC Area, go to Cross Property Section to key up your own ID number as a Listing Agent then also the ID as a Buyer's Agent. Directly send these separate two lists to firstname.lastname@example.org . I sent them as an email list and also as a Word Document but did not see a CSV option. You will then receive an email, upon submission, that says it takes a few weeks to process because of all the requests.
I got most of these directions off the Zillow site. It just took a few emails and a little bit of website exploration to figure it all out! Hope this GOLDEN RESULTS Summary speeds up the research for you!
