"Unreliable in the best way."

What do you like best?

Trulia is a really good service for scouting what is available in the area of interest. I have used it as a customer exclusively. My wife and I used Trulia to find housing options and markets of interest when we moved to a new town.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes a created listing can be hi-jacked for phishing scams. What we ran into specifically were duplicate listings for the same property, with misleading pricing. During the process of contacting the owner of the listing, we would often find that the listing would be a scam (someone asking for a check, or some other form of money) from out of town. A google search of the phone number on the listing would quickly identify it as fraud.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are trying to cast a "wide net" in a new area, or if you are looking to find the most options fast - Trulia works the best. The app is easy to use, and contacting agents with legitimate listings is easy to do. If nothing else - it gives you a great place to start.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trulia gets listings and availability out. It is often simply a wide net to cast. It is most helpful in finding an area with the most options. If you're looking for property, Trulia (even with the phishing scams) is a great tool to identify which areas have legitimate listings. Even when weeding through the scams - you are able to find good listings.

"Almost as good as Zillow"

What do you like best?

How easy it is for anyone to find my rentals or listings.

What do you dislike?

Not as easy to search as Zillow. I am unable to limit my searches by number of bedrooms, price, home type, square feet, etc. Positives on the ability to save properties to see later.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a good search engine to advertise and find rentals and properties, good comparisons, but not strong enough by itself you will need other sources of information. The fact that you can't limit the search to different parameters is a big draw back to many people.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Great for marketing of our properties. I have a good amount of people that say they found my advertised properties on Trulia.

What Multiple Listing Service (MLS) Listing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Okay for browsing"

What do you like best?

I like that listings are easy to search, and photo tours are readily available. You can search many rentals and for sale properties. Also owners are able to list their own properties with out having to use an agent, which can be helpful for them.

What do you dislike?

As an Agent, I dislike that listings are not updated as frequently as they should be. Consumers see the listings here and get excited about them, only to find out that the properties are no longer available--quite often having been off the market for some time. Rentals are the worst, but that is hard anywhere because they often do not last long.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not use Trulia if you want to know the latest market updates or find the most current properties. Please find a local real estate agent who can be your "neighborhood expert".

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using Trulia allows us to syndicate listings to many more consumers than just using the local multiple listing service.

"Trulia Real Estate Listings"

What do you like best?

Trulia is free to advertise your home to rent or sell. It is the similar to zillow, very well know and used. I use Trulia to promote my vacation rental.

What do you dislike?

I don't have any dislikes but I would say it is not as popular as zillow.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Before you sign up with Trulia and use it to list your home have all information and pictures readily available to upload. If you are looking for a home have your requirements or desires as you can fine tune your search.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trulia is an excellent way to literally get my face and cabin name out there for people to see and consider for their vacation in Pinetop, Arizona. I have received inquiries because of Trulia.

"As a real estate professional, I did not have a pleasant experience with Zillow/Trulia"

What do you like best?

It's a good resource for home buyers looking for more information about properties.

What do you dislike?

The data on there is not fully in sync with the MLS databases. We attempted to use the Premier Agent program to get more clients, but it was not very effective compared to other forms of marketing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's ok for consumers but it's hit/miss for real estate professionals looking to use it as a lead generation tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We attempted to use the Premier Agent program to get more clients, but it was not very effective compared to other forms of marketing.

The profiles are good though as it allows us to showcase our sales history and team profiles. So it's a great way to get our name out there organically (outside of the ads).

"Trulia is a great tool when searching for a specific type of property with specific specifications"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of use for Trulia and it's simple to refine your search.

What do you dislike?

I don't like how crowded the site feels. A site like Zillow may be preferable. There is no map feature on the home page and a lot of times it does not have all of the locations as other sites.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There should be a map. I know it's tough to copy Zillow, but I think the site could be improved

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Looking for homes for a relative (personal use). in comparison to zillow, I like the interface and filter settings better.

"Could Be Better"

What do you like best?

What I probably like the most about Trulia is their mobile app. It has a nice minimalistic look and a clear map and list feature. They also have custom filters you can set to narrow your search. I have used Trulia for both personal and business use because Trulia has listings the MLS does not, like by owner listings.

What do you dislike?

Trulia does have filters on their site that can be used to narrow searches, however, it does not always filter out all of the unwanted properties. For example, if you were to mark "laundry in unit" as a filter, it for some reason will still show listings that may not have laundry in unit. Similar with the pet filter, it may show properties that do not specify a pet policy, which should be a required question when someone posts a listing. Another issue with the way their search is constructed is that if you are looking for a listing that is 2 bedrooms and you set the max price at $1,000, Trulia may show you an apartment complex with a price range of $1,000-$3,000. What that can mean is that a studio apartment at that building is $1,000 but a 2 bedroom is really $2,500, which would not fit in your search criteria.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is easy to use and convienient, however, I would consider using this along with other applications because no listing applications has every available listing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A benefit of Trulia is the convienience. Because they have a relatively well designed application, it is easy to use on the go or to find listings near by. They also have a very simple and clear process for listing properties.

"trulia agent"

What do you like best?

I like that I can feature my properties on Trulia, this gives them extra exposure

What do you dislike?

I dislike that Trulia is slow to update, and the property values they have aren't a true indication of current sales. I dislike that I got a lot of calls for rental properties when I do not do any work with them. Quality of the leads does not seem very good.

Recommendations to others considering the product

it allows you to add extra zip codes, but when I did I seemed to get a lot of junk calls and not much of value, when putting back to just my primary zip, I do not get as many calls but seem better quality.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am getting exposure and by featuring my properties getting them extra exposure. I have expanded my online presence.

"Love checking out Trulia when looking for new rental properties"

What do you like best?

Website is sophisticated and easy to use. Very user friendly and the filter features are helpful.

What do you dislike?

While being able to sort by rooms and cost is nice, Trulia would be better if you had other filter options as well (commute, nearby amenities, etc).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Recommend Trulia to people at the company looking to find a new apartment (so that they can shorten their commute), Makes things very easy for 20-somethings new to the process.

"It's not Zillow"

What do you like best?

The site is attractive, the I do like the way school and crime information is easily visible.

What do you dislike?

I don't think this site is as accurate with their financial information as Zillow is.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't bother.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Finding a site that for me, does not work as well as another of it's same category means after 2 or 3 attempts to use it, I don't waste my time any longer. Trulia, in my opinion, does not offer as accurate information in terms of real numbers, and right now I am viewing a property in my own neighborhood...the description of the neighborhood is close to reality, but not completely true. This alone leads me to steer clear of Trulia.

"trulia review"

What do you like best?

Nothing! This site pawns itself off on the public as if it is some sort of Real Estate brokerage. It advertises that it can somehow help buyers purchase, sell, rent and/or mortgage real estate when in fact, they a simply a referral site. They use the listing information that hard working, licensed agents/brokers have produced to deceive the public that they are in the real estate business. Unlike REALTORS that are licensed in their states and belong to an Association or Board that requires an adherence to a strict code of ethics, they have ZERO accountability.

They use the listing information that hard working, licensed agents/brokers have produced to deceive the public that they are in the real estate business. In addition, their data is often out of date, already sold or off of the market! I have lost count of how many times I have had to tell one of my clients that the property that they "found on trulia" sold last year! They have no responsibility to ANYONE for the information that they put out to the public.

"Not worth the money"

What do you like best?

Tough call, but I'd say the best thing about Trulia is the fact that it is so easy to provide a value to people who call from Trulia bc of Trulia/Zillow being so incapable.

What do you dislike?

The quality of the people looking for information is not ideal. Frequently unqualified, looking to rent, already have a Realtor, etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

don't

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I would say that it does generate a couple leads a week. I have closed business, but the customers reminded me several times that they already had a Realtor, but they liked me more but were willing to work with the other Realtor if I didn't get them the house/deal they wanted.

"Trulia for real estate"

What do you like best?

I prefer to use trulia for rental listings. I believe the client that is looking for a rental uses online resources more so than realtor resources. Therefore my listings get in front of more potential renters easier.

What do you dislike?

For listings I prefer to not use Trulia. I like to stick with the Mutltiple list service instead and market my listings more towards agents than buyers. This creates more networking opportunities for me with other agents who have buyers and will recommend viewing my listings.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend having a separate website geared towards luxury listings. I think if there is way to make sure that potential buyers are qualified it will cut down on timing issues for realtors.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Getting listings in front of the right people whether that is a rental or a listing for sale. certain websites are better for certain listings.

"Listing Home Website Review"

What do you like best?

Trulia was very helpful for looking for properties / houses that were on the market. Similar to other listing websites, but was very easy to maneuver around.

What do you dislike?

Not sure if this is a dislike, but I used the website more on computer than my iphone. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but was more user based - probably should have downloaded the app and I would have used it more.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very easy to use and find potential properties using the Trulia website.

"Trulia is a good but not great Real Estate Tool"

What do you like best?

The site has a good look and feel, and is more reliable than some other similar websites out there (including Zillow, even though they are now the same company). I find a lot of use in some of the lesser-used features, including things like crime-rate visualization for different neighborhoods.

What do you dislike?

The data can be unreliable. Houses that are listed as on the market oftentimes aren't, sometimes because they have already sold and other times because they were actual rental listings, and other times because they were never listed for sale or rent at all. It's not as bad as some other sites in this respect, but it's far from perfect. It can also be a bit spamy from time to time, as it pushes broker advertisements and other similar advertisements pretty hard.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use this tool as one of many tools - it is not fail-proof, and it's not comprehensive in nature. But it does provide some features and functionality that you might find valuable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trulia is an OK tool for initial research and data gathering in the residential real estate world. A lot of residential brokers view it as the bane of their existence, but I would not go that far. If clients are relying solely on sites like Trulia and Zillow, they will be underinformed or misinformed, but that doesn't mean they don't have value at all.

"GoTo Real Estate Search"

What do you like best?

Trulia seems to be a very user friendly tool for. One real estate professionals. A large number of clients use this tool ahead of any other, with the exception of searches I've setup for them within MLS.

What do you dislike?

When I initialize the tool, it shows properties in areas other than where I'm located.

This is an excellent tool for. none real estate professionals to research real estate properties.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Great for looking at options"

What do you like best?

I love that they provide a very easy way to search homes/buildings and price ranges. It shows map or list view and always shows the images so you know what you're looking at.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that sometimes it may be outdated. If I am looking for a house/building just because I am curious, it will still send me notifications on that search even if I did not click on it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have realized that it shows the neighborhood values and other factors that I wouldn't even consider. It gives me a bigger perspective on the area.

"Not as advertised"

What do you like best?

I didn't have a good experience with Trulia advertising. The leads that I did get seem to be putting in requests with several Realtors at the same time, so even getting back to leads within 5 or 10 minutes doesn't mean you'll convert leads.

What do you dislike?

I subscribed to Trulia advertising a while ago, and I found it very disappointing. The results were nowhere near what was "sold" to me during the sales call. What I've heard from agents that do a lot of advertising in Trulia is that you need to spend A LOT of money on Trulia to make it worth the investment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The purpose of advertising on Trulia is to cultivate more leads, but instead of paying for leads, I've focused on building my word of mouth lead generation.

As a realtor pairing with Trulia has been a great way to get new buyers and sellers. It is a great resource for consumers so I try to use it as much as possible.

What do you like best?

Site has nice consumer oriented look to it. It appears to be easy to use by the general public in searching for properties and agents.

What do you dislike?

In their desire to act as a MLS replacement and utilize data from these associations, they are in effect duplicating services paid for by Realtors. Data scraping results in old, outdated data being viewed by consumers who do not realize same.

"Beyond the basics"

What do you like best?

I prefer Trulia to ZIllow when it comes to reviewing home listings. The information is more detailed and better photo options.

What do you dislike?

It's not quite as user-friendly when it comes to searching for a particular neighborhood as some of the local MLS sites. You can find boundaries, but can't search by specific project names.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't depend on one website when doing a residential search. Other providers, such as Redfin alsp provide useful tools. And by using multiple websites, you have less chance of missing a new listing as it hits the market.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The leads I am sent have no idea they will be contacted by a Real Estate agent. Many leave a bad phone number.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The Exclusive Seller Leads do seem to be better than Buyer leads.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Finding clients I would not have received through my own circle.. I have recently sold the listings for 2 of the leads I was given.

"How to find a place that fits you!"

What do you like best?

I love that I can put in an address and it pulls it up using any way I want. My favorite is street view, so I can see the surrounding areas.

What do you dislike?

There really isn't anything I dislike. Easy to use, fast and up to date.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can see benefit in knowing where a property is located, so I can make the best business choice on whether or not i2want to purchase that property based on location.

"Good, but not always accurate"

What do you like best?

I like being able to see the crime ratings for each neighborhood. I can even see exactly what crimes were committed and when.

What do you dislike?

Trulia has listings that are not always accurate in their price, status, and statistics.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be aware the listings might not always be accurate.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trulia can be a great way for customers to take a look at homes without actually walking through them. It can help my clients get an idea of the kind of home they are looking for. It helps them narrow down what they like and don't like without having to tour a bunch of homes.

"Best for Brooklyn/Queens in NYC, Good Interface"

What do you like best?

Nice to see a lot more detail from the renter profile, well presented and easy to read. The initial email also makes it easy to see which property the client is contacting you about.

If the renter information form is fully filled out it's almost everything we would need to know from our clients.

What do you dislike?

Doesn't work for Manhattan open listings so most of the properties that we work with can't be put on this website.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best for markets without StreetEasy, or more exclusive based ie sales

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've gotten a few client leads and perhaps done a little business as a result of this website

"Decent experience, yet needs to update more frequently. "

What do you like best?

It's a one-stop-shop to get "surface level" information on properties and their values. It's well known and easy to use, so people do use it.

What do you dislike?

Much like other real estate websites that don't connect with local MLS, these websites don't update their information fast enough, which makes a grey area where clients will see a home listed on this website, yet the property has actually been sold for a while.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Always do your research with multiple websites and information, so that you can cross-reference and see what is accurate.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Business problems are solved by cross-checking this website with others that I use, including the always quickly updated MLS.

"Trulia"

What do you like best?

We think it's a great site for showing about the properties and the description of them and generally it does better than most of the sites on the Internet

What do you dislike?

We thinks a lot of the information is not as accurate as it could be and maybe if they updated it more it would be competitive with some of the other sites on the Internet

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use this website with others to make sure the information is correct

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We need to find out values for the client so they know what their properties are worth

"Nice site for buyers"

What do you like best?

New segmented searches are unique, but i'm not sure if they are totally useful in ab actual home search.

What do you dislike?

Leads that come through on this site through property inquiries are not good quality leads.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used to pay for premium listings, but did not see much difference in that and having a non-paid membership.

"Good, could be great"

What do you like best?

A lot better interface than Zillow. Layout is pleasant and intuitive.

What do you dislike?

Photo upload is awkward, no way to upload listings to just Trulia. You have to upload to Zillow first.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Even though our MLS doesn't feed to Trulia, buyers are still looking there so I've been able to capitalize.
