CENTURY 21 Canada will send a direct listing feed to Zillow, the leading real estate website in the U.S.
SEATTLE, June 6, 2018 /CNW/ -- Zillow®, the leading real estate and rental marketplace in the U.S., announced today that it will receive a direct listing feed from CENTURY 21 Canada.
Since most (79 percent) U.S. home buyers shop online for homes, Zillow will drive exposure of Canadian real estate listings to the millions of buyers who visit Zillow every monthi.
Zillow has relationships with thousands of brokerages and real estate agents, and hundreds of MLSs in the U.S., offering them a simple way to market listings to millions of home shoppers. Zillow is expanding these efforts in Canada and expects to feature Canadian listings, including those from CENTURY 21 Canada, on Zillow later this year.
"We are thrilled to partner with CENTURY 21 Canada and help drive more exposure to their listings," says Errol Samuelson, Zillow Group Chief Industry Development Officer. "We also know U.S. buyers are interested in purchasing Canadian real estate, so we're excited to offer the millions of buyers already coming to Zillow for their home search an easy way to see homes for sale in Canada and connect with an agent to help navigate the sale."
"This agreement mirrors the partnership CENTURY 21 in the United States has with Zillow," says Jack Miller, Chief Technology Officer at CENTURY 21 Canada. "We have a long history of leading the way when it comes to technology and real estate marketing. We are pleased to be the first company in Canada to secure a partnership with Zillow Group—one that will no doubt benefit our sellers and our entire network."
