Zillow and Trulia are two popular “real estate” websites geared towards helping people search for homes in their local area and even estimating home values in their neighborhood. Inaccurate information in Zillow and Trulia are causing a lot of problems for home shoppers.
Let me explain.
These sites are not part of the Realtors Multiple Listing Service (MLS) nor are they an MLS of any kind. Zillow and Trulia are ‘aggregators’ or in other words, they are getting the listing information from other websites or in a small percentage of cases the information is inputed directly into Trulia or Zillow by the home owner or real estate agent.
No problem so far. Generally accurate information going in on day 1.
