Your agent should be watching The trulia site and can update your listing. This is an issue I have seen often despite trulia being obligated by NYS to update with in a set amount of time

Hey Steven. What's the address of the home you are talking about?

This is one of the problems that agents have with public sites. They "skim" the information they want from realtor dot com or, our mls. No one is holding their feet to the fire expecting them to post accurate information. In addition, they do not necessarily re-skim periodically to get updates. For the public sites, it is not about helping you, it is about helping themselves sell advertising. If it is on the internet, or in the newspaper etc. it must be true, right?

@Mary Sherer, if the goal is accurate information across the entire web, and the source system of record is the local MLS, the conversation should be focused on the integrity of the syndication process. Public sites, as your refer to them, are not posting anything, they're simply receiving a syndication feed of what's in the MLS. If price adjustments are not accurately reflected in a timely manner, the frequency of the syndication process between Trulia and the local MLS, which is oftentimes gated by the local MLS, simply needs to be increased.
