Before you pay an attorney, you need to know some facts. Real estate websites like Trulia, Zillow and others are MEDIA WEBSITES - not licensed brokerages. These websites just host listings posted by realtors, owners, property managers, landlords, etc. Trulia and Zillow are the same company (Zillow Group). These websites have NO CONTROL over the listings and cannot edit or delete the listing unless it expired per the terms of use. Whatever information is in the listing is the sole responsibility of the person who posted it to the website - including pictures.

Further, you need to know that these websites (including Trulia and Zillow) earn money by charging realtors to advertise on their websites. Realtors pay monthly advertising fees to Trulia, Zillow and other websites. Realtors hope that consumers (buyers, sellers and renters) will call or contact them for assistance with finding a home. Since realtors are independent contractors, they need people to call them as "leads". Once you are on the phone or send an email or text, it is the realtor's job to assist you or ignore you - not Trulia's. Most realtors will ask questions and screen the potential leads to figure out if it's worth pursuing and assisting this person. If the realtor feels the person contacting them is not worth it, the realtor will end it or transfer them to somebody else. If the realtor feels it's worth pursuing, then a relationship will form. Although realtors are prohibited by Fair Housing laws to discriminate, it is LEGAL for realtors to CHOOSE who they want to work with because they are independent contractors. As long as the realtor is consistent and applies their decision to everybody - it is NOT discrimination.

Example: if I choose not to work with seniors, then I can discriminate against all seniors. However, I cannot pick and choose which seniors to work with - that is discrimination. If I choose not to work with renters, then I cannot work with all renters. I cannot pick and choose which renters to work with.

From what you stated, I don't think you have a case.

Sorry mine is different.
I am sick with worry about a bill the agent is expecting me to pay without my approval.
In February my tenant passed away. Apparently the house had a lot of rubbish so the agent hired someone to remove it all. After two months they sent me a bill of $2300. I received no photo's of what my premises looked like. The place was badly stained with smoke which cost me thousands. The agent applied for my bond but they kept it. I was given a choice to have the bond deposited in my account or go towards the bill. I emailed them I wanted the money deposited, plus a copy of the bill. I received neither. Plus they stopped communicating with me. They kept my bond. Recently 20/7/17 I received another letter from the agent with a revised bill of $1700. What can I do I never never approved someone going in and emptying the house let alone I never saw any thing of what state my house was left in with the furniture etc. Please help me I am so stressed. ... more

Faith T answered:
Hi,

Please keep in mind we are a real estate search engine so we don't represent the homes or agents found on our site. My best recommendation is to search from time to time for section 8 listings because not all rental listings from the site are accepting section 8 voucher.

Please follow these instructions to find Section 8 rental listings

1. Click Rent tab on homepage.
2. Enter your desired area in the search bar and hit Enter.
3. Click More
4. Enter the Keyword Section 8
and click Search.


Thank you for using Trulia!

I was in a terrible situation sometimes last year. We urgently needed to get a new house and my credit score and my wife own too was bad. We tried all we could to get a loan but all effort was in vain due to the bad credit score credit repair companies couldn't help me as quick as i want .God so good to us, I later met with a credit score specialist and instructor, he gave me some instructions and requested some information from me regarding my credit score in which I provided everything to him. Luckily for me, this man was able to fix my credit score, I was so amazed. I'm happy to tell you that I'm writing this review from our new house which I wouldn't have got without the specialist's help. I know some people out there are in this kind of situation and I would love to help to put specialist's contact here, You can message him privately on his mail which is hackwiz at proton mail dot com if you like, this help cam at a time I already lost all hope.you can tank me later. ... more

One more thing to think about. In a smaller home you can add a wood floor to all living areas and the kitchen to give the space a larger more unified look. I replaced a tile foyer, carpeted living areas and wood floor kitchen with a single new wood floor. Continuity vs patchwork. Works for me. ... more
