New Local Market Information Widget For Your Website Or Blog

Last week, Zillow launched our Local Pages, look for the new tab in the top bar.  Here you'll find tons of local data about not only homes that are for sale, but all homes in a market.  You can also find information such as demographics, population make up, and even see any local pics that may have been uploaded.  This week, we took all of that information and made it available in a free widget you can use on your website or blog.  Look in the right hand column of my blog to see one of the ways you can use this info. 

It is easy to install.  First visit this page where we list all the widgets available.

Chose the area for which you want the information.  You can go as macro as the city of Chicago, or down to a particular neighborhood.

You can inset the widget on any website or blog.  But if you want to put it on your Active Rain blog, simply go to the Settings area of the My Home tab.  Then paste into the blog description and you are done!

Hi Sara - Interesting.  I'll look it over.  It looks like it puts Zestimates, right?

Bob- No, it doesn't really post Zestimates (although there is a widget for that too if you want).  A lot of these either work of all of the transactional data we get from our data sources, or they work off of what we call our Zillow Home Index.  The index is basically a compilation of the Zestimates, but aggregated over a large number of homes.  It really depends which data set you choose to use.
