Trulia is an independent and unbiased residential real estate search engine that gives you free and open access to real estate information. Trulia helps you search homes for sale and other residential real estate property information directly from hundreds of thousands of real estate Web sites. As an independent information source, Trulia offers you tools and unbiased information to compare properties and locations. Our goal at Trulia is to connect you directly to the source of the richest real estate information, often agent or broker websites. We encourage you to complete the possible property transaction with a real estate professional, a Realtor®. Unlike Multiple Listing Service (MLS)-based online real estate services, Trulia does not host the full property listing, but helps you find the most relevant information across the Internet and connect to it. Search, Compare, Connect! Why Trulia? As consumers looking to buy a property, we wanted a service that helped us find real estate information on the web with useful tools for one of the most important decisions of our life. We knew there were thousands of real estate sites offering valuable information, but finding them through traditional search engines was time-consuming and inconvenient. Some of the existing real estate services had restricted access to the information and were neither comprehensive nor unbiased. We wanted to work with a Realtor®, but we wanted to do our own research first. That was our need!
