Study: Zillow Has Far Fewer Listings than Realtor.com

As regular readers of this blog may know, I am not a fan of Zillow/Trulia.

I ran across an interesting article that sheds more light on Zillow and why they are not a reliable source of real estate information.  You can read the article here: http://www.housingwire.com/articles/35257

Zillow is not a reliable source of real estate information

Zillow is not a licensed Realtor or real estate broker in any state, and belongs to no MLS.  Because they are unlicensed they are not regulated or bound by the same laws, rules, and code of ethics.  This means they can leave expired or sold listings on their website, so they can say they have as many as Realtor.com.

Bottom line:  A local real estate website like www.davidbarrhomes.com will give you more information and more accurate real estate listings.
