Have a Housing Question for President Obama? Vine It, Zillow Says.

Online real estate site Zillow will host a housing-related Q&A with President Obama on Wednesday, and it’s getting all social media-y with the question-submission process. The company says it will take questions for the president delivered through tweets and Facebook posts with the hashtag #AskObamaHousing.

The chat is scheduled for Wednesday at 10 am PT, and will air at Yahoo.com, Zillow.com/WhiteHouse and WhiteHouse.gov.
