If you own your own home and are thinking of selling it someday then you may want to claim your home on Zillow, which means confirming that you are the owner of the house. There are a number of benefits to doing so. Keep on reading to learn more.

The Benefits of Claiming Your Home on Zillow

When you claim your home on Zillow, you get access to an Owner's Dashboard on the Zillow website. The dashboard allows you to track the value of your home, work out a good sale price and determine the best time to sell. You'll also get assistance in getting your listing noticed by more prospective buyers by making videos, adding the right home details and so forth. You can also take advantage of Zillow's Make Me Move tool, which alerts prospective buyers than you may be interested in selling for the right price without actually putting your home on the market, with all the hassle and costs that would entail.

How to Claim Your Home

To claim your home, follow these instructions:

  1. Go to the Zillow Claim Your Home page
  2. Enter your address in the text field provided
  3. Click the Get Started button
  4. Follow the instructions for verifying that you are the owner of the home

The verification process will include selecting your name from a drop down list of names. This is a security measure that makes it more difficult for anyone else to claim your home. The other names on the list are randomly generated. Selecting one is an indication of attempted fraud. If you don't see your name on the list then click on the "Don't see your name? Go here" link and enter your name and phone number.
