My Home Is Already on Zillow, Why Do I Need Homepie?

For Sale By Owner listings on Zillow used to be a fantastic way to get free exposure of your home for sale online. However, this changed when Zillow made some updates to their site. Now, all For Sale by Owner homes are separated and hidden from traditional agent listings. In simple terms, they have become hard for buyers to find. If you list your home on Zillow, you will quickly learn that most of the inquiries you get are agents who want to solicit you to list with them. Most sellers complain about the amount of agent calls they get trying to persuade them to list their home with them.

Additionally, a FSBO Zillow listing is simply a poster board. Zillow does not enable you to actually perform as a seller. If you are lucky enough to get a buyer, then you are on your own. Contrary to Homepie, where you and the buyer are guided at every step of the process so you can sell easily and confidently. Homepie is the only site that offers a free offer and negotiation tool that automatically produces a purchase contract, then has a Transaction Coordination Service to guide you through the balance of the process with all the required legal forms so you can confidently close escrow and not worry about the paperwork.

Listing on the MLS through Homepie will not only put your listing on Zillow in the traditional listing and publicly visible area, but it will also be seen on 100+ more websites including, Redfin,, and Trulia.

We are in the business of helping sellers list and close on their homes. Zillow is in the business of selling leads. We are very different.
