Hi Victor,

The short answer is no.

Your best bet here would be to use our Home Roll which you can access through the tools link that Paul provided in his answer below.

Or, if you have programming skills or know someone who does you may want to check out the data Trulia makes publicly available through our API. Below is a link that will provide you with some additional information about our API.

Best Wishes,

You are absolutely correct. Also, the Trulia button is great for your homepage and it sents them to your profile. Great question and answer.

Great question! I think the first answer was the best answer. I will look into placing that code on my pages as well. I initially see some flaws, but it does work. The idea is to deliver information, and that it does.

Pulling Trulia data can be highly customized, and from my understanding, if you're within the terms of use you can put listings on your site (more than the home roll wizard offers, which is like 6) that are accessed through the Trulia API. Its all remotely hosted of course (all though the Trulia database and not yours). I dont know a whole lot about this, but from what ive gathered you can do what you are asking. You just need to find an API programmer to help you.

Thank you very much for your answer. But I mean a little different thing. I would like to take all houses that are on trulia to my site - to download them and to show on my site. How do you think - is it legal to do so? I heard about the lawsuite with Terrabitz - this guys where doing something similar

Victor, Great question. You can see by the link provided by Paul that you can. It is really pretty easy if you are tech savvy. You can see it is not on my sight yet....because I will have to read directions and I don't like to do that when I am tired!!!!
