Don't let buying a house turn into a nightmare, let ChatGPT find your dream house
Real estate giant Zillow has partnered with OpenAI to launch a new plug-in for ChatGPT, enabling users to search for a house using natural language queries. The plug-in is called the Zillow ChatGPT plug-in and is currently available to a select group of ChatGPT users, with broader access anticipated in the future.
As an alpha testing phase product, the ChatGPT plug-in is not yet a finished product. Users are encouraged to provide feedback about their experience, and this information will be used to develop the plug-in further. While the plug-in is intended to facilitate the house-hunting process, users may encounter some kinks and glitches in its current form.
Zillow ChatGPT plugin revolutionizes the house-hunting process
Zillow's Chief Technology Officer, David Beitel, commented on the potential of generative AI to change the way people search for information. He added that the company is excited about the opportunities presented by the technology and plans to develop further tech innovations with OpenAI in the future.
This latest partnership comes just a few months after Zillow launched its own natural-language search feature, which uses AI-powered search to allow shoppers to enter conversational phrases into the search bar to return results. This makes Zillow the first major residential real estate marketplace to offer this functionality. Zillow continues to focus on expanding its core business of house-browsing and pricing estimates after discontinuing its own house-purchasing program at the end of 2021.
What can the Zillow ChatGPT plugin do for you?
The Zillow ChatGPT plug-in has two primary functions for users. Firstly, it executes searches for property listings that are "for sale," "for rent," or "recently sold" based on the search criteria specified by the user. Secondly, it retrieves property data for individual properties, providing relevant information from Zillow.
However, there are some limitations to the plug-in. It does not offer the full range of information and tools available on Zillow's platform, such as 3D home tours and immersive floor plans. Additionally, the plug-in cannot take actions on behalf of the user, such as scheduling an in-person tour or connecting with an agent or loan officer.
