Zillow, Trulia, Homes.com are Misleading Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Zillow.com, Homes.com, Trulia.com, and Realtor.com are syndication real estate website like pretty slick and offer some cool tools and decent information.  I’m all about providing real estate information and in some ways I like the theory of these sites.  These are very popular real estate websites and have a huge national presence. But these real estate sites are all about revenue.

The problem with these syndication sites is the data they provide is often inaccurate and misleading real estate information. These are nation real estate websites. But people use them for their specific, local real estate markets. And these websites do not have direct feeds from local MLS’s throughout the country. So they get their listings or MLS data from other sources. And many times, that information is wrong and misleading.

I’m a Realtor in Steamboat Springs, Colorado and the video below shows many examples of how these syndication real estate sites mislead the public about real estate in Steamboat Springs. These are real examples of how Zillow.com, Trulia.com, homes.com and realtor.com provide poor information about real estate in Steamboat.
