Trulia.com, a real estate search Web site, now offers New York property listings.
The site, which first launched in California last year (see Inman News article), 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, according to the announcement.
As part of its expansion to the New York market, Trulia has integrated property information from data provider PropertyShark (see Inman News article about PropertyShark) to offer property information including taxes paid, permits issued, and ownership and title history. Trulia has also partnered with real estate appraiser and consultant Miller Samuel to offer reports and statistics on the Manhattan residential real estate market, such as historical market analyses and future trend outlooks, according to the announcement.
“This partnership with Trulia is another way for us to provide reliable, independent residential aggregate market information about New York City,” said Jonathan Miller, president and CEO for Miller Samuel Inc., in a statement. “That’s important to market participants because co-ops are not a matter of public record and most publicly accessible data is limited in scope and difficult to obtain.”
Pete Flint, CEO and co-founder of San Francisco-based Trulia, stated, “In a market such as New York, where real estate is a local obsession and there are no comprehensive sources, Internet-savvy consumers are demanding a more intuitive search. By integrating content from data specialists PropertyShark and Miller Samuel, we can offer consumers a more informed search experience while simultaneously delivering brokers more qualified prospects.”
Trulia.com is free and does not require visitor registration.
