Where do I begin? Um...The most accurate information will not come from Trulia, Zillow, Realtytrac or any other third party website. These sites get their information from us! Realtors pay dues in order to have access to and list homes on the Multiple Listing Service. MLS or brokers can then syndicate those listings to Trulia. The problem is that some MLS companies around the US syndicate and some do not. So therefore information is not always going to be accurate. Some listings are added to these sites by hand, and when the home is sold no one bothers to update these sites with correct information. So homes stay on these sites that appear to be an active listing, but in essence it is not. But the site doesn't mind cause that is just more information on the site to attract home buyers like yourself. It is unfortunate, at best. But if customers would just go to a realtor in the first place, we could just avoid this song and dance and just get to workâ€¦. Yes, Trulia, Zillow and Realtytrac bring some convenience and a bit of value to the table and they offer some solutions, but when it comes to getting the most accurate information about any listing, or about home buying or selling in general, you really should speak to a RealtorÂ®, They will understand your unique situation because every real estate transaction is different. No one is exactly the same. I am not saying that because I want your business. I am not going to give you a pitch at the end here. I simply am writing this one to try to educate the public.
Oh and did I mention that we have to pay Trulia if we want to access more people like youâ€¦Ingenious website, donâ€™t you think? ïŠ
