In my experience, Zillow gets more clicks than Redfin. For example, my neighbor's house is for sale right now and I'm keeping a careful watch on it, both online and peeking out through my blinds to see what's going on. Zillow has double the amount of views and saves than Redfin for this property.

Yet, Redfin shows more MLS listings...

I personally love zillow particularly for the price history and for the lot line maps. I always look there. But I use realtor.com to pick up what I am missing, plus a few local sites. In the past I liked a site that allowed you to both love or reject properties so the latter would not show up on the map. I like to search by map.

Zillow engineers its site to get inadvertant clicks...most think it is just a car finger on a tablet or phone, but there is money in clicks..might even be some Ukrainian bots involved.

All of the clicks on my neighbor's house are Ukrainian bots? lol, that gave me a laugh. Actually i'm really dreading what might buy and move in.

My sentiments exactly.

I use a variety of sites. Zillow definitely has its drawbacks and is riddled with inaccuracies, but the lot line map is a very helpful feature.

The Zillow version shows property value. Google maps don't.

I love Zillow’s clear property tax information, homeowners insurance ( sometimes it is under mortgage- just gives you an idea- the taxes are never going down, only one way- is up!
Not every realtor ‘s site has it, or it is not easy to locate.

All the other websites also want money. None of them is in it for charity. To be honest, if I listed a house I'd try to maximize exposure so why wouldn't I go with a big name like Zillow?
