Zillow-Owned StreetEasy Hikes Daily Listing Prices by 15%

StreetEasy has increased its daily listing fee for rentals—the fourth such hike since 2017.

Agents will now pay $7 per day for listings, a 15% increase from the previous $6 per day.

The Zillow-owned New York City rentals portal may be a market leader, but it's hardly the people's champion.

Streeteasy started charging agents for listings ($3 per listing) in 2017. The price was upped to $4.50 in 2019, and then $6 in 2020. The platform cut fees by 50% during the pandemic but raised it back to $6 in September 2021.

The portal is no stranger to upsetting its users—its reputation has faced enough struggles that the firm installed an advisory board made up of New York-based agents to smooth over customer relations this year.

The stakes for Streeteasy hit new heights in 2022 when Zillow's long-time rival CoStar launched its own specialist New York portal, CitySnap, with the promise of no daily listing fee.
