Once a listing is sold the agent is required to change the status to sold in our MLS. Our MLS then feeds the information to realtor.com and maybe a few other sites. From there realtor.com feeds the info to a few places. With this in mind in can take a few months to filter through the internet to the various place you might see it. The best place to look at listings would be off an agents website. Look for a link that says "MLS Listings" or "View Homes Now". This is called Internet Data Exchange and allows agents to generate a feed directly from out MLS. This will be the most current info you can get.

Trulia is a national website. For that reason they don't have direct access to any particular MLS system so they are always going to have outdated property. It is not that the home is available. It is just that Trulia is not an up to date system.

Trulia, Zillow and other national sites are frequently out of date and show homes that are under contract or have been sold. To avoid out of date listings, please use http://www.CentralAZHomes.com to search for available listings. My site is updated hourly so you can stay on top of what is available.

Trulia says They " license the information about sold and off-market homes. Our data provider compiles public record information from local assessor, tax collector, and recorder offices across the United States going back for a period of 10 years. Home owners can claim homes on Trulia that are sold or off-market and can add to or update the home facts we display for these properties. " Since I did not find where you do that , I looked again and found this info on their site.

"If you find an error in an active listing on Trulia, please select the 'Report error' button located on the property page and complete the form attached. Your feedback will be sent to the listing agent if his/her contact information is available, or to our Customer Service team. If you find an error for a property that is off market or recently sold, please keep in mind that the information we show for these properties is from prior listing information made available by the former listing agent or broker, or from public record data made available by the local county recorder or assessor. Public record information cannot be updated on Trulia and must be updated with the local recorder or assessor's office. However, if you are the owner of the home in question, you can select the option to 'Edit home facts' on the property page so that you can claim your home on Trulia and update your home facts. Those updated facts will then be shown on the listing page under the heading "Owner Information"" Unfortunately I did not find how to do that either.

I don't know why Trulia make it so hard. Does anyone else know exactly where the owner can "claim" their own house?
