SocketSite has the inside scoop on getting “Zestimates” via email (Zillow Mobile).
Email (or text message) and include a property’s address, city, state (or zip code) in either the subject line or body of the email/text. Within seconds you’ll get a return email that includes a Zestimate, the number of beds/baths, total square feet, and date of construction for the property. (We’re guessing SMS access is right around the corner Arjun knows better.)
That’s right, you’ll no longer have to wait until you get home to Zillow your dinner party host (or date). And if you haven’t already heard, Zillow is also alpha testing an open API that will allow third-party websites to offer Zillow’s functionality seamlessly on their site.

    We’re just offering text-messaging for now – it’s quick and simple to use. Unfortunately, we don’t yet have a WAP-friendly version of our site.
