What do you like best?

This one shows prices according to the requirements. Shows school rating and crime percentage of the area which is almost accurate. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it is not updated. So when we call agent they say that house is already rented out. But it will still show as available. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

What I like best about trulia is that you can search all homes for sale OR for rent to cater to any of your short term or long term needs. You can also search outside of your current area. The "save home" option is very useful so you can compile a list of listings for an easier decision making experience. The website is fast, visually appealing, and easy to navigate. When searching for a specific area, I like that it also shows a map of listings for the homes in and slightly outside of the desired area. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would like for trulia to have a more in-depth photo requirement for listings that included interior, appliances, and the neighborhoods. Some listings can be a bit misleading. I also would love the option to view 'private listings' versus 'business listings'. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Trulia has become a household name among search engines for rental properties and homes for sale. It is a beneficial site to get your listing in front of a variety of audiences. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

It is very beneficial to see what homes, and apartment complexes are using the site and their availability to analyze any shadow markets that could compete with the property I work for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Trulia is up there with the rest of the real estate platforms I love it cause you have a variety of selection for finding properties and agents as well as for sale by owners who want to sell and you can do business direct with them with no agent. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

No downsides for trulia I think they should update their website when properties are expired or sold. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I enjoy having so many filter options for searching your area. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

My buyers like the user friendly experience. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not like how it's connected to Zillow and I can no longer access Trulia reports. You cant do anything without paying for it now. Trulia and Zillow do not syndicate listings properly from the MLS either. It shows homes in "pre foreclosure" which is honestly the biggest scam I've ever seen. I can not stand Trulia and Zillow.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't have any dislikes but I would say it is not as popular as zillow.com. Review collected by and hosted on G2.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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

How easy it is for anyone to find my rentals or listings. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It's a good resource for home buyers looking for more information about properties. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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". Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like the ease of use for Trulia and it's simple to refine your search. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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 Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
