I.Y., Home Owner in Northbrook, IL

How do I remove pictures of my home from Trulia after closing? I bought my home in 2011 and the pictures are still up on Trulia.

Asked by I.Y., Northbrook, IL Thu Jun 20, 2013

I have asked they seller's realtor to remove it and they said they didn't put it up on Trulia originally and therefore are not able to request to have it removed.

I also called and spoke to the nicest woman. She assured me they will be off within 24 hours. Wish I had known 2 years ago how to do this.

I called 888-466-3501 twice but no one answer the phone. Just machine answer and ask to wait forever. I ask them to remove my new purchase home photos on their contact page and get a case f #1802816 but still no one to remove the photos for me.

They are correct. Homes you see on Trulia appear without the agents knowledge or permission.If the agent does not have a Trulia account, they can not remove it.

Your home very likely appears on hundreds if not thousands of websites containing real estate data.
During the listing conversation with the listin agent, the seller was asked, "Do you wanted to promote your home in the internet on aggregare websites"" Many folks actually think real buyers exist on Trulia and Zillow and resond "YES." What you are expereincing is the result of a YES resonse. It is not reasonable to expect an agent to have an account on hundreds of not thousands of aggregare websites simply to police what these folks are doing. Imagine how much time that would take. Then comes the reality that many of the data fields are restriced from agent access so they may not be able to edit or delete after all the effort.

Now, when you talk to your friends who are thinking of selling or when you are ready to sell your home, all of you should give serious thought to promoting on the internet (aggregage websites) and have your agent discuss the better alternatives. Your home is on hundreds of websites....forever.
In this case, you should contact your attorney.
But the Truia staff may remove it before you have a chance to do anything meaningful.
