Since Zillow and Trulia are the same company, you need to go to Zillow Rental Manager and edit your listing on that website. It should populate to Trulia within 48 hours.

I can only speak for my own personal preference. I would not buy anything with laminate flooring anywhere in the house. Laminate off-gasses nasty stuff, is bad for health of the house occupants, and is also bad for environment. Information about all this is very readily available online. Laminate also looks cheap, no matter what anyone says. Now, vinyl has a bad reputation from times past, but high quality laminate (only two American companies make it) is in my opinion not a bad choice at all. I would go for vinyl any time over laminate. Modern vinyl is surprisingly environmentally friendly, and there is nothing about it that might compromise the heath of the inhabitants. Personally, I dislike tile in the kitchen too, because everything that falls down breaks into pieces, and that is not the case with vinyl (my top choices are hardwood and cork for kitchen flooring). I hear that vinyl's only limitation is that there are not too many designs and color combinations that are available. But again, if I was in the market to buy (and I was until recently), this would carry very title weight compared to the harmful effects for the health of my family and me, and even environmental concerns and the fact that laminate looks and sounds plastic and cheap no matter what. ... more

FYI -- the "foreclosure" listings you see here aren't necessarily true foreclosures (aka "bank owned") that are for sale. Realty Trac likes to list these bogus listings that aren't on the market. It's possible the owner has missed a few payments there is an NED (notice of election and demand) filed with the county. That doesnt mean it's for sale. You should hire a REALTOR as your Buyer's Agent, and he/she can help you buy any bank owned property that IS listed for sale. ... more

What property are you referring to? You'd be better of by having a Realtor working for you as a buyer's agent. He/she can show you any property you'd like.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Yes, but not directly on Trulia. You need to go to www.zillow.com. or other websites that let owners list their homes. I'm a retired realtor and currently staying in S. Cortland since we're on vacation. Best method is to find a flat fee broker to post your listing in the MLS & save thousands in commission fees. However, you will be required to pay a buyer's agent fee. ... more

Go to the local Assessor's Office to find out the taxes paid the previous year. This may be at the County or City level. This will also tell you approximately what taxes you will pay on an annual basis if you purchase the property. In Michigan where I live every City would have a local Assessor's Office that deals with property tax issues. You can also find out if there are any outstanding property taxes due.
Also be aware of special rules like the cap on property taxes in Michigan where there are two values on a property---the assessed value and the taxable value which may be different.
You may have to talk to the local Assessor and the County because in many States the local municipality and the County both levy a property tax and they are probably separate billings.
