Why indeed is your home not listed on Trulia?
The fact is anyone choosing to sell their home needs to be working with a Real Estate Agent that understands today's market and where the buyers are looking. The days are gone when all the information about homes for sale was in the hands of brokers or listed in the newspapers.
Today, smart home seekers are getting online and becoming extremely knowledgeable about the inventory, about the prices, the schools and proximity to shopping. They learn about the commute times to work and what type of public transportation is available if the need arises.
An agent like myself is aware of the changes and takes all steps necessary to be ahead of the curve. Trulia and many other websites such as NY Times.com, Yahoo-Real Estate, REALTOR.com and even the Wall Street Journal online are essential to a modern marketing plan. When I list a home for sale, it not only goes on the MLS but It is placed on over 30 websites within hours of becoming active on the MLS.
Remember, maximum exposure helps to ensure a quicker sale. Don't you deserve to be with an agent that is willing to invest in you?
Trulia as with a lot of search engines are not linked to MLS directly so they need to be uploaded by your Realtor. It is fairly simple and should only take a few minutes. I'm sure your agent will be happy to do it. With so many internet feeds these days, it can be easy to forget sometimes to post to all of them.
Good Luck with your sale.

However, if you check with your agent, and the brokerage is not doing that currently, you can ask your agent to submit the listing manually via Trulia.
