If you have tried using different browsers without success, chalk it up to Trulia (rather "Zulia") making changes to the site once again. You aren't the only one having difficulty over the past two to three weeks.
While I imagine it will be up and running shortly, it doesn't help you if you are searching for a home "now." To that end, find a Realtor in the area you wish to live and have them email (you) a personalized home search with a "live" feed directly from MLS.
To find an agent, use the tab at the top of the page and call (don't email) for assistance.

I'd like to know this, also. Doesn't look like it's possible, but it should be. It's kind of essential for what I need.

Have you found your answer? The market here is stable and it has given a great environment for buyers and sellers. To win out over other buyers submitting offers its a combination of allot of things. The source and completeness of the loan approval, the offer structure (cash/loan ratio), offer to asking and so much more. Many that have answered here have great contributions. As the Top agent in Green Valley I help buyers and sellers get the deal they were looking for and I find the "deal maker" being different to each transaction about 80% of the time. Good Luck ... more

In this instance where the agent out and out lied to you I would be of the opinion you have every right to fire her. In the case of procurring cause for the most part she is the first to take you across the threshold, and in fact did create the contractual documents on you behalf.

Now did she take reasonable care of the transaction. It doesn't sound as though that was the case when you had to follow up on your own with the listing agent. It also does not sound as though she acted in a timely fashion, nor abide by all the procurring cause standards as ambiguos as they may be sometimes.

It amazes me when agents take a hard stance as this one did, also the broker. I believe she and her broker would have been much better off trying to overcome this obstacle by searching out a better customer service solution i.e. asking if another agent within the brokers group would be acceptable, at least there could be some commssion sharing and the procurring cause issue would have gone away, or some other solution where both parties in the end could feel not so slammed by one another.

I hope you get the home of your choice and am sorry you have been treated so poorly. Not all real estate professionals are like this one. It sounds as though you are putting alot of right efforts into this. It has been my observation most generally in situations of this nature the buyer agent and broker do not take it to a law suit. Too much time and money.

Good Luck with your new home !
