I've done both. Personally, I prefer the self-paced online courses (I like to go quickly). And there is help when you take online classes (you could ask questions here!) but, not necessarily at the exact moment you need it. Plus classroom interaction can be helpful, not to mention fun. It really depends on your learning style.

Trulia doesn't have rental listings, only homes for sale and property records. You might want to try craigslist (link below). Good luck!

I'm so glad you asked that question. The answer is...BOTH! I wrote about both services the other day and said: "I love the opportunity Zillow offers but wonder if they are the biker chick who will take off to Mexico leaving us broken-hearted. I know Redfin will ride this sugardaddy until he's broke than move onto the next sucker. Trulia might just be the gal you marry. Let's see how this plays out."
