Good question! The short answer is: Yes, it is a tool you can use in your home search. But it has a limitation.
Zillow is a great platform for home searches and cannot/should not be discounted. However, there are a couple of things you should know when searching for homes in the Colorado Springs market.
Sites like this are fed from an IDX (Internet Data Exchange) via the MLS (Multiple Listing System).
In the case of Zillow, it’s also manually updated by homeowners, property managers and agents. However, Zillow is no longer automatically updated by the local MLS. The result is that it no longer represents the totality of the market.
