I have tried Trulia a few times now, and it always end the same. They put me in touch with a real state agent who will tell me that the property is already in contract or sold. This company is unfortunate a real waste of my time every time. I have finally decided that I will never use them again. I started to use Streeteasy and haven’t had such problems. Therefore, I recommend you to go there instead. Best of luck!
Trulia is a big scam. They have so many rentals on there it’s so unreal nobody calls you back. Or the agent tells you to fill out a credit application, I fill it out and boom an hour later the agent says the apartment has been rented. How did that happen. That apartment was listed 2 days ago and already it has been rented. After you submitted your personal information I think they sell these personal information to telemarketers and other bad companies. Beware. Trulia you can’t foo me again. I will delete my personal information and throw you in the garbage bin to never see again.

Trulia.com a is one of the better websites I have used. The other ones are good, but Trulia allows the user to see the different loan rates, even for the Veteran. Plus you can see homes, & apartments in different Cities.
I like the how user friendly it is and the different map options. I am planning on moving within the next year and use it a lot. What I don’t like is every time you look at a house it opens up a new browser tab and before you know it, my tablet is slowing down. My least favorite feature is when you put in a city it doesn’t always let you look outside that area.
Not only did I receive 0 callbacks from any potentially legitimate listings, I received endless scam emails and scam phone calls, (not just spam, SCAM) so now my information is out there for all these scammers to pass around. DO NOT EVEN CREATE AN ACCOUNT. Hopefully the app will be removed from the app store.
Trulia is a joke, I found a lot of places on Trulia. Notified the property management with the phone numbers that was on there with no luck. Don't get me wrong. The site is very organize but when it comes time to to make an appointment to see the place, you will never get a response. If someone picks up the phone, they'll hang up on me or either telling me that the place has been rented, yet two weeks later they're still showing up on Trulia. No it's not because it's me because I had other people calling and they got the same thing.
This is ridiculous. No one calls me back for apartments. Waste of time. I have to do all the footwork in finding an apartment. Then I have to speak with a realtor to see the apartment. Then I have to pay a realtor fee?? I did all the work in looking for an apartment not them. I shouldn't have to pay a fee. No realtor calls you back. You have to harass them. So if no callback no appointment are made to view an apartment. All they do is ask for your info and then say, "I will call you back.." Nobody wants to do the footwork. I need a hustler that wants to make money. So ridiculous???. I'm so over it. TRULIA SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE. NEGATIVE REVIEWS..
I have used Trulia a few times over the years to advertise properties for rent. After the property was rented, I found that the old photos of the interior are still posted on Trulia. I got requests from my tenants to remove the interior photos as they now live inside and don't want that to be still out in the public. It took Trulia about 5 days to respond to my first request, though asking "Since you submitted your original request five days ago, it’s likely that you’ve moved on or that you were able to self-resolve your issue. If you still need assistance, simply reply back to this email and we will be happy to help you." I had to reply and request again. This time, the photos were finally removed.
I have another property still with 8 year old interior photos on Trulia, that I haven't got around to request removal of photos. And hope my long time tenants forgive me for the delay in acting on it. So, if you use Trulia to find rental units, please be prepared to have your interior published forever, unless you make your landlord or property managers do this extra work to remove them. Trulia, if you are reading this, please automatically delete old interior photos.
Trulia is interesting To a point. I have several searches, with specific parameters set. It still chooses to ignore these and give me information I do not want or require. In comparison, this problem never occurs with Zillow. Trulia needs to do some work.
The use of this site is extremely frustrating because it will tell me that there are a certain number of pictures of a house for sale and then it doesn't want to show me those pictures. I tried to scroll through them but it's like it wants to keep me on each photo for several seconds when I don't want to be there. Maybe the pictures are just slow in loading. I don't know what the problem is but I cannot use this website without going crazy. To be fair they notify me immediately when something new comes on the market but then I have to look it up on Zillow.
Trulia author review by ConsumerAffairs Research Team
Trulia launched in 2005 and is operated by the Zillow Group. The company focuses on providing neighborhood information to house hunters and renters, but it also has features to help real estate professionals. Consumers can access Trulia online or by using the company’s iOS or Android app. The site lists both properties that are for sale and for rent.
Neighborhood information: Property listing pages tell interested homebuyers what restaurants, grocery stores, entertainment venues, shopping districts and parks are near the home. The website can also display local reviews of those establishments.
Crime data: Each property listing on Trulia shows information about crime reported in the neighborhood. Users can browse reports by date or view them on a map. Data comes from SpotCrime.com and CrimeReports.com.
Commute estimate: Individuals concerned with the time it will take them to get to work can use Trulia’s commute calculator. The calculator can show the estimated time for driving, walking or biking as well as public transportation options.
Request information: Interested buyers or renters can easily request information about a listed property from the listing page. Their contact information will be sent to one of Trulia’s partner real estate agents, who pay to be listed on the site. Consumers can use the same form to request financing information.
Trulia resource: Homebuyers and renters will all find the Trulia website helpful. The Trulia Community section allows users to ask and answer real estate related questions, and the company’s blog has informational and news articles about real estate.
