A local Realtor (r) has access and resources to get your home to appear on Trulia.
Of course, you do realize real, qualified home buyers do their home searching on the MLS.
There agent will advise then, :If you see it on Trulia or Zillow, veirfy it is available on the MLS before you call me." Over 37% of the informaton on aggregate websites is incorrect.
As you should see, your homes presence on these sites does not add value. What is does to is create a condition of persistant peril for you and the new owner. Add to that your homes image on Google maps and you have the perfect storm for those who wish to create harm.
You should go, right now to Google Maps and blur your homes street view. The street view, as you very likely already observed is the common resource of those who wish to create bogue rentals , leasse and for sale ads. Trulia iwll use this image to post your homes value. You should blurr it.
When you list your home with a Realtor (r) have them syndicate with professional and respondisble websites who will not host your homes information thereby, keeping the control of the data within our grasp. Do not blast to the itnernet and onto aggregate websites.

Best of success,

It's your house you have the right to do what you want with it. Just refer to your listing contract as to terms of advertisement. I am sure you'll find the answers there.
