Please know the 'Edit Home Facts' feature is currently removed from all property pages. While we do not have a time frame for when this will be restored, I can assure you this is only temporary. Home facts on Trulia is coming from your county records. This data is gathered by a third-party data collector and only updates on Trulia when discrepancies are identified at the next data collection cycle. Unfortunately, we are unable to expedite this process. Our best recommendation is to check with the county to ensure the information is correct at the source.

I hope the information I provided today was helpful in addressing your concerns.

Thank you for using Trulia,
Consumer Care

Rent to own is really not a good idea, therefore consider fixing whatever is preventing you from purchasing outright. Rent to own can be risky and one could stand to lose a bit of money, it favors the owner; therefore inform yourself well in advance of your search, and consider consulting with an attorney who specializes in real estate before considering the idea and or before signing any agreement. If you haven't done so yet, visit with any licensed loan officer, see if you can buy outright, or simply continue renting until a purchase can be made. ... more

It might be from a previous listing that carried over, otherwise you'll have to contact the site admins directly.

Understand that ANYONE can post a rental. Trulia is only displaying 3rd party info, and there are ways for scammers to post fake listings on other websites which then get mirrored on trulia, zillow, realtor, etx.. When a deal seems too good to be true, it is.. ALWAYS verify EVERYTHING you see online with a local Realtor. Realtors adhere to a strict code of ethics which offers you consumer protection and piece of mind. Flag the listings and email Browse the agent directory to find a well reviewed local Realtor. ... more

It varies based on condition, style of home and price but, I would plan on 6 months as a guide.
Condition would enable some homes to sell within 1 week and others not. Even get an offer in a year.
Off street parking makes the sale much quicker too.
