Do the math. If you subscribe for $40/month at Trulia's lowest plan, it would take one rental at a retail price of $1000/month (approximately) to capture your ROI. If your commissions are like here in SE Florida, you could pay the year with that one, single rental. One person renting a condo with you at $1000/month, that's it.
If you bump up to $99/month or $199/month, the math stays the same. At $199/month, you'll need to write two rentals at $2000/month or one small sale of $80-100K to cover the year.
The question is, do you believe that you'll drum up at least this much business (above) to pay the year and get your ROI? I say yes, it's a no-brainer.

Our recommendation is to give it a try on a trial basis, but closely monitor your results before making a final decision.
Hope it works for you...
She did not know how to procure more clients and felt that being in the real estate business was a huge mistake. Without her knowing, I decided to finalize her profile and ultimately try out Trulia Pro. I can tell you that she began to receive more clients than she was able to handle (a reason why I decided to join her in the real estate business).
Trulia really did give her a "life-line" when she needed it the most. Currently, we are not on the subscription plan only because most of our business has been coming from referrals and other means of marketing - but we are planning to subscribe again for a side-project that we had came up with.
I can certainly give it a try for a few months to check it out.
Thumbs up for all of you that took the time to share your thoughts. Thank you!
