Customer: "I'll NEVER fly your airline again!!!"
Agent: "Yes you will."
Customer "I know"

Trulia gets their open house data from the MLS, which is input by the listing agent. Sometimes I advertise my listings as open and then no open happens. Why? Because something else came up. Because the site agent I hired got a flat tire. Because one of my clients called and needs something. Because the seller broke her ankle and cancelled the open. Because LIFE happened. Sitting at an open house is probably the LEAST important thing I will ever do. Open houses are generally designed to pacify a seller and get new clients for MYSELF.

If you want to see houses for sale then I respectfully suggest you have your agent take you to these houses. I do understand that it's really irritating to get to an open house and find it not "open" but honestly, the internet has sort of taken the place of much of what these open houses were for.

It's not Trulia's fault, they are not the scheduling center for the world's open houses. Get a buyer's agent to work with you. There's a whole bunch of us on this page to choose from.
