Overview

In today's dynamic real estate market, keeping track of property values is essential for making informed financial decisions. Quicken Simplifi offers a seamless solution with its integration of Zillow, empowering users to effortlessly monitor and manage their real estate values. Let's delve into how this feature can revolutionize your property tracking experience!

Note: Zillow is currently only available in Early Access. To learn how to enable Early Access, click here!

Linking Real Estate Accounts to Zillow

When you link your real estate account to Zillow, you will receive an account balance equal to the current Zillow value. You can then update the account to have adjustments made to the value!

Note: Zillow updates do not occur automatically. You can click here to be directed to the steps for manually updating your Zillow account values!

Add a New Account with Zillow

  1. From the Dashboard, click on the + Add button in the upper right of the Accounts List.

  2. Select Track assets, and then select Real Estate.

  3. Enter the address you'd like to add, and then select the correct option from the dropdown list.

  4. Review the property value, confirm or enter the Account Name, and then click Confirm.

Link an Existing Account to Zillow

  1. Select the real estate account you want to link to Zillow.

  2. Click the Link to Zillow button at the top.

  3. Enter the address you'd like to add, and then select the correct option from the dropdown list.

  4. Review the property value and then make sure the correct existing account is listed in the Link to field.

  5. Click Confirm.

Update the Value of your Zillow Account

When you update the value of your Zillow account, any additional accounts linked to Zillow will also be automatically updated. If there are no changes in value, Quicken Simplifi will notify you that the market value remains the same, and no adjustments have been made.

  1. Select the real estate account you want to update.

  2. Click the Update Value button in the upper right.

Unlink an Account from Zillow

If for any reason you'd prefer to track the value of your real estate account manually instead of using Zillow, you can easily unlink it from your account settings.

  1. Hover over the panel on the left-hand side and select Settings.

  2. Select Accounts.

  3. Locate the account you want to unlink from Zillow and click the three dots at the end of it.

  4. Select Make manual.

  5. Click Make Manual to confirm.

Once done, the account will be listed in the Manual Accounts section and will retain the current balance. The account balance will then have to be maintained manually by adding 'balance adjustment' transactions.
