The Real estate websites are designed to give an idea of places, communities and prices. If you are serious to find a rental place you should contact a real estate agent that can be a real resource with update listings. They can help you to narrow your search, provide you with private advice on the terms of the lease and negotiate a better price because of their knowledge of their local market.

Best of Luck,

Ashley, The rental market moves much faster than the for sale market. Thus, keeping the information and inventory up to date is an ongoing challenge.

Yes, the depicted rentals could be already rented out and remain on the website. Keep in mind, that the funtion of the websites is to provide you with an overview of the market, trends and questions asked by the public and answered by professionals.

If you are seriously interested in securing a rental, best to work with a rental agent. At the time of initial intake be sure and discuss with your agent, your particular interests and needs. For example, if you have a pet that is important so that units that are pet friendly are shown to you.

The real estate information posted on Trulia isn't always the most up-to-date or accurate. Your best bet is to work with a local Realtor who has access to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) - the database used by Realtors nationwide.

They could be old or they could even be scams. In the case of rentals on Trulia let the buyer or in this case the renter beware.
