I'm not particularly impressed with the blog personally. Lot's of fluff, spam, self-promotion and self aggrandizement. But I do feel folks gain some reasonably good information from experienced and sophisticated RE professionals who take the time to offer up sound advice and not just a bunch of gibberish to conjure up a lot of points.
But let there be no doubt that Trulia is a real estate professiona''s way of connecting with prospective clients and building a stronger website presence and SEO. Like anything and everything you just need to filter through things until you find something that hits your hot button.
All forums you can find look for real estate or ask questions and look for a realtor or mortgage broker
To find properties it is best to be working with an agent or realtor as you will have correct up to date info about the property as on the Internet not all sites update the information that is put out there. Some update once a week, once a month or never.
Did you have a question I can help you with?
