I agree. The problem, I think, is that our listings are sometimes entered in by other sources. If we 'claim' the listing (which we should), we don't have the ability to change it, just claim it. If we 'unclaim' it, our name comes off but it's still out there. If we are to be held responsible for the public/web information on our listings, we should be able to make the necessary changes when our listing are posted by others.

Trulia needs to add a link that we can click on to change the status. Hopefully they will work on this.

I emailed Truilia and they have not taken it off. I was able to change other websites to reflect the status after contacting them so if you click the links, it will show that it has sold. Since it was previously fed by a different broker, I have no control over the 'status'. I guess I just have to wait till it expires. I don't want to have closed sales out there being advertized as active, for obvious reasons! thanks for the help.

Carol, have you figured this one out? I would like to change the status of some of my sold listings, too. I have checked everyplace that I have posted them and have updated them when I have access. There are several sites that have posted my listings that I have no control over so I can't update them. Thanks!

Regarding to Lor's answer - Unclaim will just take away branding the listing to the listing agent, it will not remove the listing from Trulia - meaning people can still do a search and find the listing even though it's sold.

The only way to delete it is do what Ute suggested, or just email Trulia customer service and have he/she delete it.

Hello Carol. Congratulations on the closed escrow. I am assuming you are talking about removing it from Trulia. Since Trulia is fed from various sources, you have to go to each source that fed your listing to Trulia. For instance, if your website and V-Flyer or postlets fed your listing to Trulia, you should change the status on your website to sold and delete the online flyer. It may take a day or two before the status change is picked up by Trulia. I hope this helps.
Best regards,
Ute Ferdig

My understanding is you can just unclaim it.
