I evaluated several home search sites by performing the same search and comparing the results. Trulia is CLEARLY better than the other home search sites...and I'm not just saying this because I'm on Trulia. I will post this blog message on other sites as well.
BAD: Not easy to enter city. Have to navigate link from county and then look for link for the city you are interested in.
BAD: Not possible or not readily available to restrict search based on price.
BAD: Zillow is not just for sale. Also, includes “Make Me Move”, “Recently Sold” and “For Rent”.
BAD: Zillow includes “Manufactured” homes and most agents enter them as “Single Family”.
BAD: Featured homes on top have nothing to do with my search criteria.
GOOD: Bubbles clearly indicate which listings are Foreclosure and New
GOOD: Trulia clearly shows homes that are “OPEN”
GOOD: Trulia provides and easy drop-down to select what type of property you are interested in (Single Family, Condo, Manufactured, etc.)
