I am interested in getting aggregate dollar values for listings/sales on Zillow (for the whole country summed together, for example). Unfortunately, Zillow's data page seems to only show the "ZHVI", an index value, not a total dollar value. Is there any way to get the total dollar value?

You need to check the zillow terms of use to make sure your use is appropriate:

This is not an open data set at this time. However the API may satisfy your needs:

  • I don't see how this helps. I see no API call for requesting aggregate data. – Tyler Durden Feb 16 '15 at 14:10
  • I just said the API may satisfy your needs. I don't know. API calls would help if you really wanted the value. You would have to make many API calls and aggregate them yourself if that was the route you wanted to take. Are you looking for zillow specific data, or real estate (MLS) data in general? This is a post describing a similar problem and may be helpful: geekestateblog.com/… – respectPotentialEnergy Feb 16 '15 at 14:40
  • If even thought of trying to query every house in Zillow, the company would put out a contract on me. – Tyler Durden Feb 16 '15 at 14:53
