Following the cancellation of the listings feed from ListHub to Zillow and the impending cancellation (subject of a legal injunction at the moment) of the ListHub to Trulia feed, Zillow is running fast to put in place direct data feeds with MLS' around the US.
While this will take time, once completed it will put them on an equal listings footage with Move and make Move's growth plans even tougher to achieve.
Here is the latest announcement about the Georgia MLS signing
Zillow has announced that the Georgia Multiple Listing Service has joined the Zillow Partnership Platform. Through the Zillow Partnership Platform, GAMLS's nearly 27,000 members will be able to send their more than 53,000 residential listings throughout the state directly to Zillow as part of the brokers' online marketing activities.
"GAMLS has a very vibrant home buying ecosystem," said Brian de Schepper, Zillow director of MLS and industry development. "We are pleased to offer GAMLS members the convenience of a direct feed to Zillow, while guaranteeing their members placement on all their listings at no cost. Now, home shoppers looking for their new home in Georgia will be getting the freshest, most accurate listings and be able to easily connect with a local real estate professional on Zillow."
"The direct agreement with Zillow gives our members the opportunity to decide on how to best market their listings," said Richard Boone, CEO of Georgia MLS. "This agreement ensures the listing data will be timely and accurate, which will represent both our members and their listings in the best possible manner."
