Hi Roshan,

Deborah is correct. Listings are submitted to us by brokerages, brokers, agents, and third party vendors and we will give precedence to listing submissions from those parties in this order if they happen to submit the same listing to us.

Best Wishes,

Agents and brokers are only allowed to submit the listings they represent as evidenced by a listing contract. It is possible for the same property to be submitted more than one time if a third party vendor submits the property data in addition to the agent/broker. The third party vendor would reflect the same agent/broker contact info as representative of the property in all exclusive right to sell lisitngs.

Trulia appears to have software in place that bumps one of the submissions if a property is a duplicate submission from an agent as well as a third party vendor. An example of a third party vendor is when a real estate publication submits all listings from brokers that it printed this month to Trulia.
