Now, what Manuel failed to make clear is the data appearing on Trulia does not come from the REALTOR (r) supported MLS. Data on Trulia comes from LISTHUB. Both Listhub and Trulia reserve the right to change, replace, substitute, surpresss, misrepresent, alter and modify data as it suites their business purposes. WAVGROUP reported 37% fo data on Trulia is faulty.
Why are you not using the FREELY available MLS through your local REALTOR (r) ?
If you are a serius buyer, do yourself a favor, get access to serous data resouces. The MLS is the rescource of accurate, timely, reliable, comprehensive, relevant, responsible data.
The choice is yours. Contact a Miami, FL Reator (r) for FREE access.
Best of success to you,

However, I had situations when I removed the property, but it was uploaded by another source (like Point 2 or ListHud) again.
Most accurate site is Realtor.com - however, I recently was looking for my own listings - and could not find it, opened a "case" with them - and was told that this was common and they were working on it...
So, nothing is perfect, you are right!
Hope this helps,

It appears you waded through all 14 reponses preceding yours.
Thanks for the 'TWO THUMBS UP"
Below is a link to the source of my 37%. Like you, every call I receive from a buyer using Trulia or Z are from citizens chasing VAPORS!
REALESTATE WEBSITE ACCURACY â€“ Professional vs Aggregate

I have attached a link to my website below that I have for my clients. This website works directly with the MLS so it is updated instantly. This means every property you see has "available" status. You will notice a smaller number of properties but they will be the ones you can actually buy.
Working directly with an agent will take a lot of the guesswork out and it costs you nothing as a buyer or renter.
Best of Luck,
When a Realtor posts a property for sale on the MLS it will not hit Trulia for 48 - 72 hours, by that time there could be multiple offers on the property or the property may even be under contract. Lets say that Realtor places the property in pending sale status, then it will take the same amount of time for the listing to be updated on Trulia. THEN, there are the Realtors who never place their listings on pending sale status and sometimes not even on closed sale status, therefore Trulia is not to be blamed for the issue.
The solution to your problem is simple, give one of us Realtors that have so happily answered your question a call, so that you are first to know which properties come on the market, which are available and which are not.
as others have expressed, Trulia is a great site to give you a general idea of the market, but for a more up-to-date view you should contact your realtor and if you are not working with one at this time, please feel free to go to interactiverealty.net and if you find something you like feel free to contact me at any time.

But they are really good at giving enough mixed data for users to explore communities, find trends, see inventory movement, etc. Then the user should use Trulia to select a local agent to work with, by reading their responses, their reviews and recommendations. Then that agent will provide buyers, also for FREE, upto the minute local specific information directly from the MLS and be there to answer every question with specific answers based on real local knowledge. This is the service Trulia could never provide and why Trulias function will always be to funnel buyers into the best agents in the area. Was this answer helpful?

Trulia is a great tool to begin and keep abreast of what's going on in the market. It's also the optimal place to connect with professionals in your area to assist you with your real estate needs.
The best resource for locating properties as soon as they hit the market are real estate agents. Information Trulia post comes directly from us and our associations. A great real estate agent who's working to help you meet your objectives is better than a thousand websites.
Wish you much success in your home search.
