Trulia San Diego

 

Trulia San Diego – A Review

 

Given the virtual world and all of its possibilities, it could be tricky to find a good online company that can help you with your real estate needs. At first glance, Trulia may have a lot to offer, but there is more than meets the eye when using Trulia for your San Diego real estate needs.

If you are unfamiliar with Trulia, this is how they work. First, the attraction – search unlimited real estate options in your local market. Second, setup an account so you can gain access to real estate professionals and unlimited information regarding home buying, home selling or rentals. Third begin searching. But hear is the catch, as you pour through all of the real estate offerings you may come across something you are interested in. If you choose to be contacted they send out the inquiry to several different agents. Which doesn’t necissarliy help you or the agents. You will most likely be approached by several different people looking for your business. But how do you know who will be the right match for you? In here lies the challenge. Finding the right person who you are interested in working with.

Now I am not against Trulia making money or offering these services. But I think that a potential home buyer could be better serviced if they found a local company with a good reupation who can help them unconver and answer all of their questions. A real person who works for a local business that they can build a relationship with.

My other challenge with Turlia is that their listings do not show if they are active – meaning still available, or are they pending – meaning they are in escrow with another buyer, or expired – meaning no longer on the market. That can be frustrating when you are trying to find the right home that fits you. Accurate information is everything!

Havin said all this, Trulia does a lot of things good. Their site has great graphics and an extensive database of articles on various real estate topics, and access to current conversation regarding the market. However, if it were me, I would want someone local who can offer up-to-date information that could educate me and who is willing to invest in building a realationship.

If you are using Trulia San Diego and are looking for an alternative, visit  ScottWayCapital.com to start your local San Diego real estate search.
