Trulia.com, a real estate search Web site, now offers property listings in Florida, Texas and Pennsylvania in addition to its California, New York and New Jersey markets.
The San Francisco-based company today announced its expansion and has plans to add five more markets by July.
The site, which first launched in California last year, searches multiple brokerage Web sites for property listings and displays that information at its Web site. The site also incorporates historical information such as ownership history into most property listings.
Some of Trulia’s broker partners include Prudential California Realty, Prudential CA/NV/TX, Weichert Realtors, Prudential Fox and Roach, Intero Real Estate, Ebby Halliday Realtors, Century 21 Judge Fite, First Team Real Estate, Real Living, Alain Pinel Realtors, Stribling, Prudential Gary Greene, Prudential New Jersey, Prudential Tropical, Keyes Company, Illustrated Properties, and Coldwell Banker Hearthside.
Sherry Chris, chief operating officer for Prudential CA/NV/TX said, “We see home buyers relying more heavily on the Internet for information about homes for sale and neighborhood and demographic information.”
Chris’ brokerage company is one of the largest in Northern California. “Our strong online presence is further enhanced with Trulia directly connecting home buyers with our own listing agents,” she said.
Trulia.com is free and does not require visitor registration.
