Hi Gail,

I'm afraid that for some cities, like Marietta, we don't have neighborhood information, however we do allow you to filter your results by zip codes. I'm also afraid that neighborhoods can't be added to our site.

Please keep in mind however, that, when you use the 'search within map' option, you pinpoint the specific location you want to focus on just by moving the map. I hope that information is helpful.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or suggestions for us.

Best Wishes,

Emily Erekuff

The previous answers you received are correct. When you are listed with an agent, it is your listing agents responsibility to advertise your property on various sites, etc. I'm not sure if Trulia pulls information directly from GAMLS, FMLS or not. I know that my broker, Keller Williams Atlanta North has a deal with Trulia whereby all of our listings are entered here automatically. ... more

It sounds like you are referring to "HOME Atlanta" or "The Georgia Dream Program". One is a grant the other is more like a loan. Lenders must be certified to provide the Ga DP.

Kelly from Trulia here. This is an important question as we measure our success by the value we deliver to you. Not to make this a blatant sales plug, but since you are just a few data points:

1) Volume - Trulia was a top 3 referrer to 12 of our largest broker partner Web sites, according to Hitwise data from this Fall:

2) Quality - The Trulia user is a highly attractive audience of serious home searchers - take a look at my blog post with results from our recent Trulia user survey:

3) Measure by Others' successes - there is a great case study no Prudential Fox & Roach reporting that Trulia users were clicking to their site and requesting double the average # of showings than other user:

And if you purchase a monthly subscription to Agent Featured Listings you get: contact info displayed, ability for clients to email you direct, listings placed in the top 3 search results and weekly reporting you can forward to your clients. Plus, agents receive 4x the normal Trulia traffic on average through this product!

Hope that helps.

Thanks to all for the healthy discussion on this. I think the variety of responses point out that there are many reasons why this gentleman posing the original question has a perception that there are no RE/MAX listings on Trulia.

Let me make another more focused attempt at answering this question. From my perspective, because Trulia is such a new site, and so many others like it are continuing to pop up daily, there are not yet consistant practices in place on how it is populated. Currently, in Atlanta, the MLS boards do not allow for auto-feeds to Trulia (or other syndicated sites for that matter). From the Board's perspective, they believe that listing data, once posted on the FMLS system, is owned by them.

Therefore, decisions on pushing listings automatically to Trulia must be made at the individual listing agent level or at the broker or corporate levels for each Real Estate company. Those decisions likely have a direct correlation to how many listings are posted from each brokerage firm onto Trulia.

For autofeeds of listing data to work in Atlanta (and many other cities), the individual brokerage firms must first "own" that data vs. the MLS boards owning it. Keller Williams Realty has made a decision at the corporate level to partner with Trulia and other syndicated sites to make this feed automatic in an effort to receive the broadest level of exposure possible on the internet for its Agent's listings.

To do this, first Keller Williams had to develop a KW Listing Site that was independent and not feed directly from the MLS board sites. This process was put in place for KW in early 2007. As KW Agents, we enter all of our listings into both the MLS sites and into our Corporate Listing Service. As a result, all listings entered into the corporate KW Listing Site are automatically fed to Trulia and other syndicated sites.

At a recent Mega Agent Conference held in August for Top KW agents Sami Inkinen, the COO and Co-Founder of Trulia, was invited as a guest speaker to talk about this partnership and to educate us on the changing syndication practices that are occuring throughout the real estate market as it relates to the growth of internet marketing, IDX options, MLS board rules, and consumer interests, etc.

Those working for RE/MAX would need to answer whether or not a similar corporate decision has been made or if those decisions are still left up to the independent broker's and/or agents. The decisions made at the corporate level are likely impacting the number of listings posted by broker firms on these site regardless of current market share increases or declines.
