I have found in the past that there are some listings that do not exist, especially when there is no address listed. Also some of the information comes from a listing feed and that is not always up to date.
Sometimes the listing is sold or under contract but if you follow the link you should be able to see that. In general many agents in the industry do not update their information very swiftly and the hardest and most time consuming part of my job is calling listing agents only to find out a home is sold or under contact or has an offer out.. My understanding is that Trulia has recently updated and upgraded some of their listing processes and therefore it is getting better..What i have also found is that there are many more homes for sale that do not show up here so your best bet is to contact one of the buyer brokers or experts here and let them work with you to find you the most suitable available home at the best price.

Most listings are accurate and I am able to verify them on the broker database

Hi, Yes they typically are unless you have been a victim of a scam. This site is an agent only platform at this time so anything posted has to be through an agent.

Apartments go very fast in NYC. Owners and brokers put their listings on the site but often, neglect to close the information when the transaction ends. It IS possible for some properties to be scams so proceed with caution. Having a qualified, licensed broker will help keep you from pitfalls.

Keep in mind that some of the rentals are listed by brokers, others by owner; scams do exist therefore always proceed with caution and verify ownership before exchanging any money. Consider working with an agent of your own.
