Hi Cireyoung! Carol at Trulia here. I see you have done a great job adding your Owner Information to the property record for your address! Please note that the previous sale information we display for each property is obtained from information made publicly available through the County Assessor's office. Unfortunately, we do not have control over the content of this information, but until we receive the updated public records, we can block this information.

If you have additional questions, please contact us at or call Customer Service at 1-888-466-3501.

Good afternoon,

Ideally working with a REALTOR is the best place to start. They can help you not only find what you are looking for but also help present you to the landlord favorably.

If you decide to look on your own I know Westside rentals and craigslist are common areas landlords do list properties. Beware of scams on Craigslist, never wire money to an "out of area" landlord and if its to good to be true it likely is a scam. Westside rentals is more legitimate but they charge a fee.

Also, even if the listing says no pets it never hurts to ask. Especially if you leased prior and you can provide a letter from your previous landlord stating your pets are well behave.

Hopefully, these tips can help you and you can also call or email me for more info.

Have an exceptional day!

I live in South/West Torrance and can hear the train whistle blow "off in the distance", from time to time if conditions are right.

A reason for why a Seller would not want a buyer to know that their home is in contract escapes me. Typically, Sellers are pleased when they know unfamiliar people will not be walking through their home at all hours of the day.

If you do not trust the Seller to provide accurate information as far a status you can do any of the following:

1) Call the Listing Agent and ask for status.
2) Provide the property address to one of the Agents responding to your question so they can check.
3) Identify your own Realtor® and have them check for you.

I would agree if you are buying a home you should find your own Realtor®. In regards to finding this individual, the following sites, as well as a review of their Trulia profile/answers will give you good insight into the depth of knowledge and experience of each individual.

Note that DRE licensees are NOT bound to a Code of Ethics; only Realtors® take that oath, which can be viewed here:

You can check to make sure an Agent is a Realtor® by going here:

You can check the status of a DRE Licensee and their Broker (and past violations) here:

You can check for Desist and Refrain Orders, and Unlicensed Activities here:

Finally, I would encourage you to NOT enter into a Dual Agency (using the Seller’s Agent). Here’s why:

Best, Steve

Hi Karen,

Welcome to Trulia and thank you for your question. As others have mentioned below, your listing agent can send you automatic client listing reports that will keep you updated with your listing stats. Your agent should also be able to make changes to your listing either on our site or with the source that provides your listing information to us.

If for some reason your listing agent is unavailable to update your listing, you can contact our Customer Service team for assistance as well. You can send them an email via the link below or you can use the 'Report an error' link that you'll find on the property details page for your home.

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

Best Wishes,

Emily Gibson
