Many buyers contact me about properties that were off the market that Trulia had listed as Active. Active means that the property is currently available for sale. I am guessing from previous experience that Trulia is about 1 month off from what's on the current market.
A buyer that was enthralled with a property on Trulia called me last week to inquire about purchasing the home, but the house had already sold to another buyer.

Trulia is a great resource for buyers to initially understand the market as they discuss prices with their realtor. If you would like current information, feel free to contact me at your convenience.
