Reasons your listing may not be published:
Your listing is already being posted from another rental source.
Zillow will only ever publish a single version of a listing at any given time. If the listing is already coming from a listing feed, or another account in Rental Manager, it is very likely for your listing to be declined.
Your listing is already posted for sale.
Zillow Group does not support listings that are for sale and for rent simultaneously. Only one version of the listing will be published. If the listing is already listed for sale, the for sale listing must be completely removed in order for your rental to post. To remove the for sale listing, contact the listing owner to remove the listing at the source. You can find the listing owner's information under the Overview section of the active sale listing on Zillow. Once it has been removed from the source, it will be removed from Zillow Group sites within 24 hours. Once you have confirmed the listing is off-market/no longer for sale, you can publish your rental listing.
The listing is in a large rental community.
If your listing is in a community of 50+ units it may require a multifamily advertising agreement. This lets the apartment community's management company manage the inventory and marketing of the entire community. Individual listings can not be posted directly. For more information, please see http://www.zillow.com/rental-property-advertising/
The rental listing is in New York.
In certain areas of New York, only listings coming directly via StreetEasy will be posted on Zillow, Trulia, and HotPads. To advertise your listing via StreetEasy, please click here and select the appropriate category. If you need further assistance with listing on StreetEasy, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The rental listing is a Room for Rent.
If you are posting a Room for Rent listing through Zillow Rental Manager, your listing will be posted to HotPads and show 'Declined' on Zillow and Trulia. Zillow and Trulia do not host listings in this category. We do not have the option to remove the room for rent category from a property card at this time, so if you selected the room for rent category by mistake you will need to deactivate the listing and create a new one. Ensure that when creating your new listing you do not check the box that designates your listing as a room for rent. You can find instructions on creating a listing here.
Please note, our applications and lease builder features are not available for listings in this category. However, you can still manage and edit your room for rent listing through Zillow Rental Manager to appear on HotPads.
