How Does Trulia Work?

How Does Trulia Work?

Listing information is provided to Trulia by agents, brokers, website vendors, and Multiple Listing Services (MLS). They also get listing details for For Sale by Owner homes from Zillow. There are over 3.5 million listings on Trulia.

Listings that are sold by real estate agents are listed by them on MLS and don't include homes that are For Sale by Owner, foreclosures, and non-MLS auctions. You can find homes in each of those categories on Trulia by switching between the search filters on the website.

Trulia FSBO listings will show up in their "other listings" tab within the search results page.

It is free to list your home on Trulia and the listing includes unlimited photos and videos. Home sellers are able to reach a large audience of home buyers who receive emails when a new home is listed.

As a listing agent or landlord, the site is also free to use. Trulia gets most of its profit from advertising, so they don't need to rely on revenue from agents, landlords, or homeowners listing their properties.

Cons of Using Trulia

Cons of Using Trulia

Since the platform is free to use, there are many false listings that are placed on Trulia's site. Somebody could've taken the home information and photos from a legitimate listing and posting it as their own on Trulia.

If someone is selling their home using For Sale by Owner, there's no way for a potential buyer to verify that it's a verified source, leading to people getting scammed.
