Not all houses that are listed will show on Trulia. Trulia is a search engine and listings are either manually posted or fed through individual agents/brokerage websites if their websites have been set up to syndicate to Trulia. In other words, distribution to Trulia is not automatic once a listing is entered into the MLS and even if it is automatic, there may be a delay. I hope this helps.

Hi Marta

The listings featured on Trulia have been extracted from indexed broker/agent web pages. Realtors who would like to add their listings to the Trulia search engine should visit the link below to find out more.

Hi Marta.....Not all properties are on Trulia. Was your home listed with a Realtor? Some Realtors must manually imput your home on Trulia and if you are a FSBO Trulia only accepts listing from Realtors at this time. What website did you find your house on?

Your real estate company has to have a strong internet presence to be indexed on all sites, which is important, since not all homebuyers look in the same place. For example, Weichert has agreements with Realtor.com, Homes.Com, RealEstate.com,and RealEstate.Yahoo.com. Now, these sites also index to Trulia.com, Zillow.com, Move.com, and others. Next, I also manually input on places like Craigslist, HotPads, Facebook, MySpace, HotProp, and dozens of others. It's a lot of work, but VERY necessary to have this marketing in place.

Hi Marta,

On what website did you find the house that is for sale? Was it listed with a Realtor or a for sale by owner? As stated below, not everything is on Trulia. If you want specific information on a property, feel free to contact me and I will get that for you.

Hi Marta - Glad you took the time to ask a question. Without knowing about the specific property that you are looking into, I wouldn't be able to provide a great answer. I can tell you that if you would like to receive listings according to your needs, I can provide these to you through my email prospecting program on a daily basis. That way you will know about a home as soon as it is listed!

Thanks again Marta -
