I use Trulia Pro because it enhances my listings, but I feel that most of the leads I get from there don't turn into anything because they are being sent to multiple agents at the same time so the odds are much lower.

I use Local Ads for my main source of buyer leads and have had tremedous success.

I find Trulia pro promotes my listings and enhances the ability to reach more potential buyers. The local ads do add more exposure but depending on the amount of listings you have, could be a bargain or could be costly.

Agree with Sarah. Tried to use use Local Ads recently with no noticeable results. While the leads are certainly not very successful with Pro, I have closed one very nice deal last year and have another client for the future.

Trulia Pro is primarily for buyer leads. Local Ads is a branding and listing tool. If you can afford it, do both. In my market most of the listings are "Featured" through corporate agreements with Trulia and therefore you get less exposure but that may not be the case in your market.
