It is difficult to compare apples to apples here. While most brokers will list a property for rent on the MLS, many owners, property management companies, apartment locating services may not. Also Trulia takes marketing feeds from the MLS along with many other private feeds. For example our companyâ€™s property website pushes our listing on to Trulia. Due to this type multi data input the data is only as good as the people who enter it into the system.
Jeff let me say I am confident the pricing you find on Trulia should fall wall within the median range for the rental market in the area you are looking in.
