Zillow Adds First Canadian Listings to Mobile App and Website

Thousands of for-sale listings from Canada are now live on Zillow, with more listings expected to roll out soon

Zillow®, the leading real estate and rental marketplace in the U.S., announced today that it has started featuring Canada’s listings on Zillow’s mobile app and website.

Zillow has relationships with thousands of brokerages 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 into Canada.

“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.”

Starting today, home shoppers can use Zillow to search for Canadian for-sale properties by postal code, city or province, and use Zillow’s comprehensive search filters to customize and save their search. All Canadian listings featured on Zillow will display the home’s list price, a description of the property, photos and available home facts.

Consistent with Zillow’s U.S. listings, Canadian properties will prominently display the listing agent’s contact information as well as a link to the brokerage or franchise website so buyers can easily learn more about the home or connect with a local real estate professional to help navigate the sale.

“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,” says Errol Samuelson, Zillow Chief Industry Development Officer. “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.”
