A majority of Zillow's photos are provided by real estate agents through the MLS via a listing feed when a home is listed for sale. It is important to note, photos provided by previous agents or homeowners cannot be used for future listings.
Zillow also publishes aerial maps and Street Views provided by Google Maps. In addition, we recently uploaded photos of home exteriors in select Seattle neighborhoods as part of a limited test to improve the overall quality of data and images available through Zillow. These photos were collected from the sidewalk or the street and offer a similar perspective to images typically available through Google Street View or the county/local assessor’s office.
To remove photos uploaded by an agent/homeowner or to remove a test photo, please see the help article for how to add or remove photos of your home.
For some homes, we receive home sales data directly from the MLS. In these cases, updates must be requested by your agent to be made in the MLS. Once your home info is updated in the MLS, it will also update on Zillow.
