If you see an error message when attempting to use Zillow rental applications, or do not have access to Zillow applications at all, it may be due to one of the below reasons.
Your listing is a room-for-rent listing
Our applications feature is not available for listings in this category. However, you can still manage and edit your room for rent listing through Zillow Rental Manager to appear on Hotpads.
We do not have the option to remove the room for rent designation from a property card at this time, so if you selected the room for rent category by mistake you will need to deactivate the listing and create a new listing. Ensure that when creating your new listing you do not check the box that designates your listing as a room for rent. You can find instructions on creating a listing here.
Your listing is outside of the United States
Our applications feature is not available for international listings. Generally, Listings outside of the US are not currently supported on Zillow, with the exception that listings can be posted and managed through Zillow Rental Manager in some areas of Canada.
Applications are not supported for multi-family listings
Our applications feature is not available for listings in this category. However, you can still manage and edit your ‘entire apartment community’ listing through Zillow Rental Manager to appear on Zillow, Trulia, and Hotpads.
We do not have the option to change the listing type associated with a property card at this time -- if you selected the ‘entire apartment community’ category, but wish to change it, you will need to deactivate the listing and create a new listing. You can find instructions on creating a listing here.
Your listing is syndicating to Zillow through a feed
Our applications feature is available to use for feed listings if you have a connected Zillow Rental Manager account. If you do not have a connected account, you will be unable to use the Zillow application service.
To connect your Zillow Rental Manager account, follow the steps below.
- Log in to Zillow Rental Manager with the same email address you use as the contact email for your feed listings here: https://www.zillow.com/rental-manager/
- Click "Get Started", so we can verify your email address.
Once your email has been verified, you will see your feed listings in your Zillow Rental Manager account, and you will be able to activate the rental application feature from there.
To activate the application feature, simply select Yes to Receive Zillow applications? at the bottom of your edit listing page.
Please note that your Zillow account email must match your contact email on the feed listings you have posted.
Our applications feature is only available to rental listings. If you would like to post your rental listing and utilize our applications feature, you can find instructions here.
