First, let me ask WHY? Keep in mind that Trulia is NOT a real estate company, an auction company or even a property management company. Trulia (and Zillow and Realtor.com) are just marketing sites that offer info about buying, selling, and renting. The listings you see come from various sources, such as local MLSs (multiple listing services), public records, and individual properties for rent. The listings can be very outdated and have inaccurate info. If you're not buying or selling then you really should care what this site says about your house. If you insist on getting this info changed, then you need to correct it at the source -- your county records department. But then guess what? You could be opening up a can of worms. You can have the county correct the info, but then they'll likely raise your taxes! And if you had work done that wasn't permitted, then you could face fines. Regarding your home's "value" this site means NOTHING. The values are terribly inaccurate. The only way to get an accurate picture of your home's TRUE "Fair Market Value" is to have a Realtor do a market analysis.

I just wrote a blog post on the subject:

Hi Coby,

Owners who claim their home on Trulia cannot add photos to our display at this time. However I'll be sure to share that suggestion with my colleagues.

The square footage information we show towards the top of the page is based on data made available from public records. Further down on the page we show the square-footage information you've provided under the 'Owner Information' section. If you wish the public records data be updated as well, please contact your local assessor's office to ensure that they have the most up-to-date information on file for your home.

Best Wishes,

Hi Sherry,

Welcome to Trulia Voices!

Only listings that have been submitted to Trulia manually can be edited at this time. We are working to make all listings editable but in the meantime you'll need to update your listing photos at the source.

We receive your listing information from Coldwell Banker and we display photos in the order in which they are included in the data feed Coldwell Banker sends to us. Thus, you will want to contact Coldwell Banker to ensure that they include your listing photos in their feed in the order that you want them to appear on our site. Once they make this update to their feed, our display should update automatically and accordingly.

Please let us know if you have any other questions or feedback for us.

Best Wishes,

Emily Gibson

Hi Debbie,

The link below to our Knoxville Real Estate Guide displays this information. You might also want to take a look at some of the active listings on Trulia in this area. For each listing we display comparable properties that have recently sold if that information is available.

Hi Kither,

Trulia doesn't list rental properties in our search results - only active residential homes for sale. Hopefully the websites Tammy listed below will be helpful.
