How Do I Remove a Listing from Zillow?

Homeowners enjoy the convenience of listing their homes for sale on Zillow, but it's important to know how to remove the listing when the house is no longer on the market. Zillow listings can be removed in a few simple steps online through the seller's profile. When removing a listing, make sure you do not owe a real estate agent any commission or marketing fees, and communicate with the agent at every step if you use one.

Zillow is one of the many go-to sites for listing rental properties and homes for sale. If you have a listing on Zillow, it's a great way to reach a larger audience of potential buyers or renters, but what do you do if you don't want to use Zillow anymore or the property has been rented or sold? How do you remove a listing from Zillow? You can learn more about the site's features and how to manage your listings by contacting customer support here. Below are ways you can remove your own listing.

Reasons For Removing Your Listing

There are a few reasons why someone would remove their listing from Zillow. These include:

  1. Changes in your financial situation can cause you to remove your listing from the market. You may not be able to move into another place at this time, or you wish to hold onto the property until your finances improve.
  2. If your home has been listed for quite some time with no takers, you may want to remove the listing until the market isn't as stale. Also, if it is a buyer's market, you can remove your listing until the market swings back in the seller's favor.

Fees For Removing Listing

It's also important to know if any fees will be involved in removing your listing from Zillow. If you have not hired a real estate agent to help you sell your home, you can remove your listing any time you wish at no cost. When a real estate agent is involved, it's vital you review your contract and see if there are any fees you may have to pay to remove the listing. For example, the agent may be able to pursue full commission for the listing if you remove it in violation of the contract. Some real estate agents will waive these fees if the market has grown stale or a good-faith effort was made to sell the home.

Also, communicate with your agent if you wish to remove the listing. Commission fees are not the only costs you may have to pay. Agents can also charge marketing fees whether you keep your home listed or not.

How To Remove The Listing

Removing the listing can be done through your profile online. To remove a Zillow listing, follow these steps:

  1. Open Zillow in your browser and log into your profile.
  2. Select "Owner View" in the listing.
  3. Choose "More" in the menu.
  4. Click on "Cancel Listing."
  5. Select "No Longer For Sale" as the reason for removing the listing.
  6. Hit "Update Status" to complete the process of removing your listing.

Whether the market has slowed, you aren't getting any reasonable offers, or you have changed your mind, you have the right to remove your home from the market. For more information or assistance in removing your Zillow listing, contact customer support here.
