It is crucial to be aware that data appearing on aggregate real estate websites like Trulia an ZILLOW have NO connection to the Multiple Listing Service. The WAVGroup has reported that 37% of the data appearing on TRULIA is faulty.
FAULTY DATA IS THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF TRULIA. If you have suffered real loss have your attorney contact Trulia.
Trulia states they receive real estate data from a third party data aggregartor. Listhub.
Listbub replces data from the MLS with date retrieved from public sources. Both Listhub and Trulia resserve the right to replace, substitute, supress, change, alter, delete or misrepresent information is it suites their marketing needs.
Real estate professional are in NO WAY responisble for faulty data and in many cases, (SUCH AS STATUS) are PREVENTED from correcting.
The moral to the story is, "IF YOU ARE A SERIOUS BUYER YOU NEEED TO USE SERIOUS TOOLS." Looking for home in the 'make beleive' land of aggregate real estate wbsits ALWAYS results on uninformed buyers looking for someone to blame...just as you are.
Trulia is NOT the MLS.
Trulia is not accruate.
Trulia is deliberately deceptive.
If you are a serious buyer do what serious buyers do, pick up the phone and call a Seattle REALTOR and get plugged into tthe source of reliable, accurate, timely, comprehensive, relevant and responsible data, the local Multiple Listing Service. Any Seattle will provide you FREE access.
So, show you are serious.
