Adams North is not a neighborhood Do you continue to separate it from the rest of Normal Heights to decrease the property value south of Adams?

If the comments below were true, you would not be able to search for "Adams North" on Trulia. However if anyone even begins to type in "Adams North, San Diego, CA", Trulia not only has it listed as a neighborhood/area, but they complete the typing for you.

Secondly Trulia uses Google for its maps. Google corrected the "Adams North" mistake about a year ago, yet if you select "map" on Trulia, they are identifying a location that is not a San Diego neighborhood.

To say "Trulia isn't doing it" is false. They promote in their searches and they actively add it as a neighborhood on a map program that does not.

4700 is the magic number. Streets running north and south, IE the numbered streets, the streets named after states, etc. will have an address with a number over 4700 if they are north of Adams Ave.

Trulia isn't doing it, people listing properties are, and probably just to differentiate the location of their property. Don't worry about your home's value. Agents and appraisers look at zip codes, major streets and similarities of properties within a certain area, starting at 1/2 mile if they can get enough comps. But if a house is in the south of Normal Heights, and there are 6 comps right nearby, no one will look further.

If you need to sell or refinance, it's best to contact an agent for an idea of value. Neither agents nor appraisers use online consumer real estate web sites to estimate value.

Whoever wrote this listing didn't check back very far. The original house was built in 1926, not 1945. The two story addition came in the early 1970s.

Adams North comes from San Diego Police Department's map of neighborhoods, which probably came from the original subdivision plats.

When Normal Heights was first laid out and lots were sold back in 1914, the neighborhood had 3 official subdivisions. They were Adams North, Cherokee Point, and Adams Park. The realtors and google maps seem to have revived these old designations in the past few years.

Look at the original Normal Heights subdivision map, which is No. 985, filed with SD County on May 7, 1906. Adams North, Cherokee Point, and Adams Park are subareas for planning purposes only and help the SDPD locate and narrow in on crime. They were never the "3 official subdivisions."

Not sure who you're addressing this to. Trulia just pulls info from various sources such as MLSs, public records, etc. When you say "YOU" you're making it sound like Trulia is doing this on purpose. Trulia really has zero involvement in ensuring the accuracy of information in it's listings. I would go to the source -- The LISTING agent who put it in the MLS incorrectly! Or maybe it's an issue with your county records dept.

If "Trulia really has zero involvement in ensuring the accuracy of information in its listings," then why do they have a website that can't be trusted for accuracy?
