Trulia DOES NOT pull homes for sale directly from the MLS. Trulia receives homes for sale information from LIST HUB. This data can be AND IS altered to suit Listhub or Trulia.
Why doesn't your home appear here?
Perhaps the data related to your home has been determined to be important and that when it appears to the public it should be ACCURATE. Your agent may have recognized that once your homes data appears on aggregate websites, neither you or your agent has ANY CONTROL over the accuracy of such data. When your home does sell, it may remain on these aggregate websites, as FOR SALE for months!
Although your agent, like so many, has little knowledge of how Truila works, your agent DOES know real buyers do not make decisions based on what the see on aggregate websites. They make their buying decision based on what appears in the MLS.
If your agent choose to keep you homes data OFF aggregate websites, you should realize this protects the integrity of such data., retains control of that data, and does NOT compromise access for those buyers who are SERIOUS. You know who those SERIOUS buyer are. Those who are qualified to buy (can get a mortgage) and are working with a real estate professional.
Best of success to you,
