Will Zillow still pull the "for lease" listing from the MLS?
The Zillow Group (Zillow, Trulia, and HotPads) now requires a fee to post your listing to their sites in all states. You will want to touch base with the MLS to see what their agreement is with Zillow.
Zillow has separate contracts with every company and will not share pricing or contracts with Hemlane. You can read more about Zillow charging for rentals here.
Why should I pay extra to advertise my rental through Premium?
Everyday your property is vacant, you are losing money, typically over $50 per day. This feature will increase exposure to tenant leads, providing a faster turnover and reduce your vacancy. Most professional managers pay for enhanced listings.
What about Facebook Marketplace?
This request has come up quite often. They do not have an API but when they do, we will definitely consider a partnership with them.
