This week we look at the Real Estate search engine Trulia for the Website Crate.

Links of the week 3-3-07


Simply put Trulia is search engine for finding real estate. Just type in your City, State or zip code and press search, and the results show up on the left, combined with Google maps on the right that let you see the area in question, just click the map and drag it around. You can refine your results by choosing your price range and housing type along with the number of bed and baths you want. The site has some nice features I haven’t seen else where.

According to the site the listings on Trulia come from partnerships with thousands of brokers and agents across the country to provide consumers with the best source of information on any home. I would definitely give then a try. Kevin.

Trulia is a real estate search engine that helps you find homes for sale and provides real estate information at the local level to help you make better decisions in the process.

We aim to be a delightfully smart partner when you are looking to buy a home. The smart part should help you find your dream home (or at least the dream home within your budget) and arm you with data and information about local real estate (without too much work). The delightful part should make you smile and keep you coming back.

Whether you are moving down the street or clear across the country, we’re here to help you understand real estate trends at the local level. When you are about to make the biggest financial decision of your life, we help you understand how your future home stacks up compared to similar homes on the market, and similar homes that have recently sold. We show you how sales prices have been trending where it matters—in your county, city, ZIP code and neighborhood.

We’re data hounds but we don’t expect you to be. Our crack team of engineers and analysts are focused on building tools—like our Heat Maps and real estate guides—to help you understand and interpret the real estate information. Real estate search just got much smarter.

Trulia is also a tool for real estate professionals to market their listings, view real estate data and promote their services. If you are a broker or agent, we’ve got a Real Estate Professionals section just for you.
