    I would love to see a Zillow sync option so that the value of my personal residence was tracked automatically!
  • Agreed! This would be a fantastic addition, especially considering other leading personal finance apps for Mac include this feature.
  • I would love to see Zillow integration in Quicken for Mac. Please keep this idea alive! Thanks!
  • Please keep this idea alive. I would really love to see this feature come to Quicken for Mac!

    Please include Zillow property estimate valuations to Quicken Premier for MAC.

    I just purchased Quicken for Mac and am shocked the Zillow integration is not there, when it's basically available for every free personal finance software I've tried. Please make this happen, you already have it for Windows, so it shouldn't be a terribly outrageous ask.

    I am surprised as well. Would appreciate this as well. Would also like to track car value as well with maybe a Kelly Blue Book integration.

    It is CRAZY to not have zillow! If you want people to utilize Quicken as a complete financial overview vs just tracking straightforward finances, you have to be able to include what is for many people their largest single asset.

    Considering that the Windows version has it I am pretty surprised that the Mac version does not have a place to enter your home value, let alone a Zillow lookup tool. The Mac version of Quicken is clearly the red-headed stepchild.

    Just so you know in Quicken Windows what you have is an asset account for the house and it its value is the balance of that account.  What the Zillow integration does is download the current value and optionally make a balance adjustment transaction to change the account balance to that amount.

    So Quicken Mac already has the "place" for the house value, it is a matter of downloading the current estimated value and applying it to the account register.

    P.S. There really isn't a whole lot of need to add this to Quicken Mobile/Web since you don't update this value that often (the lowest reminder time in Quicken Windows is one month, even though you could do it more often).  After updating on the Desktop you can just sync the current transaction/value to the Quicken cloud account.

    Okay, so I understand that for the Mac version I will need up update the value of my home manually according to Zillow or whatever measure I deem as the most accurate and that it needs to be added as an "Asset", but are there any guidelines on how to do this so that changes in value as I observe them can be recorded (along with a place for me to put notes) where I don't have to add extraneous transactions that affect cash in/outflows? I have not found a complete guide that gives best practices on for this, especially if my aim is to compare my estimated home value vs the amount owed on my mortgage since I don't see a way to link the two. Since payments of mortgage principle aren't transfers, I don't see a way to create this linkage.

    @hinder90 Sorry I'm just now seeing your post.  I hope you will see this.

    Note I'm a Windows only person so I can't tell you exactly what Quicken Mac has for sure or how to do it, but I can venture some guesses.

    Your mortgage loan account and your house account are completely separate.  How much you owe on your house has no bearing on what its value is.  As such they are separate accounts that don't directly affect each other and if you want to put in notes you should be able to do that in whatever transaction you want to add a note to.

    In Quicken Windows there is a way to link the house account to the loan account.  This really only done because there is "views" in Quicken Windows where they show them together.  For instance there is a Property & Debit tab that has them.  I don't think Quicken Mac has either the "views" or the "linking".

    But in truth it is quite easy to get a picture of value vs loan, just use a report like net worth and include both accounts.

    Seems like a simple win as Windows already has the feature.
