There are a couple of brokerage sites that offer an unrestricted feed of MLS data fields. Check out Territory.com (see link below) and you can veiw all of the listings in Back Bay plus their corresponding condo fees and price histories.
So, the big websites are faced with a choice, only allow high grade listings with thorough information and have much less content, or open the flood gates and suffer some inaccuracy. I don't think I know of a website that turns down content in the name of accuracy.
Anna Brocco: Thanks for your answer also, but they should link up with the sources that gives the most answers to the viewers/end buyers informative needs. I'm a computer/software engineer.. it has been 10 years of internet development to make it robust for end users and "retailers" to show everything a buyer needs to know. Then the buyer can make a rational (key word) decision... which was unlike the "bubble people". And I agree with you about pre-approvals.. .no broker wants to waste their time on someone that can't come close to affording the showing.
For me, I'm not new, I've owned for a while now .. investments in brighton and living in Newton. I have an equity Credit line .. but I should get a pre-approval letter... as you stated and I also agree.
The answer should be that this website should get the most informative feed... I don't think Trulia mix and match source feeds...

Maybe this would be a great, unique addition for Trulia.
Not sure about the why for either question, but, at least for the condo fees, this could be something implemented in the future.
