U.S.-based online real estate marketplace Zillow announced earlier this week that it has finally made available thousands of Canadian for-sale listings on its mobile app and website.
This followed the recent formation of data-sharing deals with multiple Canadian partner firms operating in the real estate industry. Together, the agreements represent more than 50,000 listings, and these will be rolled out on a continuous basis.
Users will be able to use Zillow to search for Canadian properties by postal code, city, or province. Every for-sale home’s list price, description, photos, and other relevant facts would be readily accessible, as well.
Moreover, “any agent whose brokerage or franchise partners with Zillow can put a home on Zillow for free and benefit from the visibility their listing will receive on the largest real estate site on the web,” the announcement stated.

“It’s an exciting time at Zillow and we’re thrilled to start expanding our listings coverage outside the U.S. and provide the millions of home shoppers who use Zillow every day an easy way to see Canadian homes for sale,” Zillow chief industry development officer Errol Samuelson said.
“Zillow provides unprecedented global exposure for Canadian listings on a reliable and trusted platform home shoppers love. We’re excited about the momentum we’re making in Canada, and with every new Canadian partnership we build, the home shopping experience on Zillow will only get better,” Samuelson added.
