Yes. If we were to enter your listing into the MLS, it would eventually overwrite your existing claimed listing on Zillow and/or Trulia. While we, of course, do not have control over third-party websites like Zillow and/or Trulia, much of the syndication process from MLS PIN to third-party websites is near real-time and typically completes in “hours”.
Historically, we advised FSBOs to not claim their listing on Zillow ahead of using an entry only MLS listing because it seemed to cause delays in the syndication process. It does appear that Zillow’s business model change in becoming a real estate brokerage and the resulting change in how they technically integrate with, and get their listing data from, MLS systems across the country, which took place in January 2021, has eliminated syndication errors, blocks, and/or delays in syndication to Zillow.
