Real-time syndication is a feature that leverages Zillow's Real-Time API to provide near-instant updates to rental listings. Developers must integrate their systems with this API to enable the seamless flow of rental listing updates.
If your current integration does not include real-time syndication, your listings will be updated on a schedule tailored to each provider's request. Updates to your listings may take a bit longer compared to real-time syndication. Changes made to your rental listings through bulk feeds are processed periodically, and it may take a few hours for the updates to reflect on the Zillow platform.
How do I know if my provider is connected to Zillow’s real-time endpoint?
- Contact your provider: Reach out to your feed provider directly and inquire about their integration with Zillow's real-time endpoint. Ask them if they have the capability to send updates in real-time to Zillow and if they have an established connection with the platform.
What’s the process for enabling Real-time syndication?
- This typically involves following our API documentation, implementing the required endpoints, and ensuring data is formatted correctly.
- Our documentation can be requested by submitting your integration request.
By meeting the requirements of real-time syndication, developers can ensure that rental listing updates are sent and reflected on platforms like Zillow within a few minutes. This allows for accurate and up-to-date information, enhances the visibility of listings, and improves the overall efficiency of the listing management process.
