Many MLS systems have a map pin placement option where an agent can precisely place a pin where your home is located. Unfortunately, many agents don't know how to use the feature and others don't bother. Call your agent to see if corrections can be made.

Unfortunatelly the listing agent have no acces to the mapping of the property. That comes directly from the MLS or brokerage firm that you listed with. The listing agent can change pictures from the property to make it look more appealing to the prospective buyers and he can add a note stipulating that are some errors on the map and the property is on the other side of the street.

Best of Luck,

It is frustrating when such errors are encountered. Real Estate agents have no control regarding what appears on these aggregate websites. I know, it's hard to beleive. Agents often think they have control. Following is the messsage I receive when I attempt to correct data for my Bacopa Bay listing. The following is information presented by Trulia.
Editing Your Listing

In an ongoing effort to improve accuracy on Trulia, ListHub and Trulia have agreed to restrict editing of core information (e.g. price and status) that is sourced directly from your MLS or brokerage database. This restriction does not apply to other marketing information such as photos, which are limited in some MLS systems.

To maximize the quality of data on Trulia, we recognize the need for agents and brokers to add additional photos, including branded virtual tours, add additional data points, and edit photos to include higher resolution photos directly on Trulia. We are working with ListHub to enable editing functionality where appropriate.

In the near future you will be able to log on to Trulia and edit or add some additional data to maximize the quality of your listing on our site. Core information (e.g. price and status) will remain uneditable. We appreciate your business and are committed to helping you provide the best listing content on behalf of you and your sellers.
In essence, the only thing an agent can edit is adding images and they may schedule open houses. That's it!! You may choose to instruct your listing agent to NOT SYNDICATE your listing EXCEPT to those approved sites your MLS uses. This means, don't send to

Best of success to you.

Hello Kay,
We cannot see the address of the property that you are referring to. I suggest that you either inform your agent (if your home is currently for sale and represented by an agent) or contact Trulia about the incorrect location.

You can contact Trulia M-F from 7:00am-4:00pm PST at: 888-466-3501 or send them an email message and be sure to include the entire address to: . They usually respond within 48 hours.

Good luck to you!
