Are you suggesting the folks in Harper Woods MI are using entertainment sites like Trulia and Zillow for making real estate decisions? Are you of the belief that "If it's on the internet it must be true?" Did you read the disclaimers (the fine print) regarding the information they publish? If you had, you would not have a question.
Further, you would have followed the direction provided and allowed yourself access to reliable, accurate, relevant, current and comprehensive data. Just a brief survey of the Q&A forum would have revealed data on aggregate websites, not just Truila is fabricated, outdated and often blatantly incorrect.
You should not feel badly. Even the President of the United States fell for the deception of aggregare websites and participated on Zillow believing it to be a real estate website. Do you think HE will rely on Trulia or Zillow when it's time to vacate 1600 Pennsylvania Ave?

They have not visited the properties, nor verified any of the information. They have no idea if any of the information on the tax records is accurate (and gosh... who ever heard of a governmental agency posting incorrect information?).
Anyone who used Trulia's information to make a financial decision is doing it the lazy way, instead of doing the appropriate fact-checking. You're directing your disappointment at the wrong entity.
