ZILLOW'S REAL ESTATE AGENT LEAD GENERATION PROGRAM IS A RIPOFF. DO NOT FALL FOR THEIR HYPED UP SALES PITCH. THEY DO NOT GENERATE LEADS FROM ANY MLS DATA BASES. THEIR PURPORTED LEADS COME FROM AN IN-HOUSE PRO- PRIETARY DATA BASE THAT IS OUTDATED AND USELESS. THE DOLLAR VALUE OF PROPERTIES THEY SEND ARE FOR THE MOST PART <$200,000. THEY OVERSELL THEIR CAPABILITIES AND UNDER DELIVER IN QUALITY. THEIR PROPRIETARY DATA BASE PROVES TO BE A COSTLY WASTE OF ANY AGENTS TIME AND MONEY.

MAJOR PROBLEMS: 1. POOR QUALITY OF LEADS, 2. LEADS ARE NOT VERIFIED BEFORE BEING SENT ON TO AN AGENT, 3. MARKET VALUE OF PROPERTY LEADS GENERALLY LESS THAN $200,000, 4. LEADS SENT FOR LOCATIONS FAR BEYOND AGENTS 'FARM' AREA, 5. COSTLY, MINIMUM SIGN UP 6 MONTHS @ $1,650.00, AND 6. BASICALLY WORTHLESS PROPRIETARY DATA BASE USED TO GENERATE LEADS, MOST LEADS ARE OUT OF DATE WHEREBY PROPERTIES HAVE BEEN SOLD, EXPIRED OR DELISTED.

Original report still holds true as of 09/2013

AUTHOR: MCccccccc - ()

 I would just like to comment in agreement with the original post.  Although the original complaint was issued two years ago, all of the complaints still hold true today.  The price for "lead" ratio can be over $100 in some instances, and the price per ACTUAL lead, in my case, was infinity...since I received no genuine leads.  It is a good idea to 1) not sign up for advertising, 2) create a profile and fill it out completely, 3) evaluate leads for one month with no recommendations, 4) evaluate leads for one month after receiving at least 5 references.  If you receive more REAL leads in the second month than the first, it would be a good idea to consider a very limited advertising campaign, IF you are in a large market AND you only want to sell homes for $60,000 to $250,000.
