Adam,

The ideal position is neither love or hate them...there are times when I dislike them especially when I see agents paying them $350 a month here in our area so that they are the only one appearing on their listing.  I know the work it take to get a listing, and then you have to pay for your listings as a defensive move?  Back to an ideal frame of mind!

Hate.  It's a plague to the industry.  Their very model is corrupt - they advertise to consumers as one thing, and to the agents they "serve" as an entirely different type of entity.  Slimy to say the least.

I don't hate, but maybe dislike quite a bit!

They are a thorn in our sides.

They are NOT a Professional Real Estate Site...they are strictly a lead gen company.  That is how they make their money by selling people interested in your listings to someone else willing to pay a HIGH dollar amount.

Not my thing at all. I am into accuracy of data, not buying my own leads and fortunately, they haven't entered the commercial market. Hopefully, they never will.

I am in the camp of neither and both.  Exposure, I love them.  Leads, hate 'em.

I hate them but I'm told I should 'embrace' the possibilities with them (say that with arms raised high). In other words, give your enemy a hug & leave them at arms length.

Hate it - it has taken millions and millions of dollars from hard working Realtors and provided a great deal of mis-information to the public.

Indifferent. I have used it successfully, but then came a time when I didn't and I dropped it and do my own thing.

Neither. However, real estate professionals must advise their clients that information on Zillow may not be correct.
