Trulia Twin Cities

Of all the "Web 2.0" style real estate search applications, our favorite has always been Trulia  (If you aren’t familiar, Trulia is an application developed by a
couple of Stanford smarties that aggregates property listing information from virtually every broker on the planet in one easy to use website.)  These people get it. With a great interface, simple, intuitive design, but still plenty of cool features to geek-out on, it is the gold standard of real estate search.

Problem is, Trulia only covered listings in California and New York.  Until now, or, until August 30th anyway – that’s when Minnesota listings started to appear as part of a ten state expansion (we’re almost national!) by Trulia.

We are way to excited about this.  Search on.

[As an aside for the brokers reading - check out Trulia Maps - which allows one to imbed a trulia map mashup with your listings right into your website or blog]

Nice concept, but hardly seems comprehensive (yet). I did a couple simple zip code searches and Trulia returned only a small fraction of those returned from Edina’s site.

Agreed, though one wishes that a real estate broker could come up with a web site search interface even half as user friend as trulia. Both Edina and Burnet’s are incredibly bad.

Trulia will never have all the real estate for sale that is in the MLS so it will never be as useful as a brokers site.

I agree with this view of Trulia
