Like many websites, it sometimes takes a while for it to be updated in the public websites that you see, the most updated and true time activity for any listing will be on our MLS website that realtors use. I would be more then happy to help you. I live in 34209 as well. Thank you. Have a great day!

Trulia gets information from lots of different sources.

Programs like POSTLETS syndicate real estate information to dozens of sites for real estate.

Sometimes the information is mistakenly uploaded from these programs and skews the data on Trulia.

Find a local Realtor that can get you up to the minute data for your local area.

Good luck!

Gerard's answer may be more technically accurate but Debbie is local and at least addressed my question, even if she doesn't know WHY the data is withheld. I appreciate all responses but am familiar with MLS and working with agents already.

My beef is with Trulia. But at least they don't use random valuations like other sites (z.....) do. How does it serve either buyers or sellers to publish valuations based on properties that aren't even vaguely comparable? Ugh, what a mess.

Trulia, like most online services, isn't set up to be real time. In order to get real-time updates, you need to start working with a local realtor.

If you want truly up to date listings on "active", "pending" and "sold" listings in 34209 or any other zip code in Manatee or Sarasota Counties, visit" and click on "Dream Home Finder". I promise you will receive everything your looking for within hours of the transaction taking place. Your other asset......I live in the middle of 34209.

That's a tough question to answer because there could be numerous reasons why sold listings aren't updated promptly. Workling with a Realtor, like myself, you will get more accurate and up to date information. If I can help just let me know.
