The Houston Association of Realtors has added Trulia to the list of Web sites it pushes listings to, under a partnership that will automatically feed more than 50,000 for-sale property listings to Trulia.com.
Other multiple listing services (MLSs) providing direct feeds to Trulia.com include MLSPIN, CLAW, MLSLI and NORMLS, Trulia said. Technology vendors that accept feeds from MLSs, such as Threewide Corp and Point2, provide listings from more than 200 MLSs to Trulia.
HAR has similar agreements in place with a number of other third-party real estate portals. When HAR announced in November that it would begin feeding listings to Zillow.com, it already had similar agreements in place with Cyberhomes, Google Base, Homes.com and Realtor.com (see story).
The listings HAR sends to Trulia will include full property descriptions, photos and contact information for the listing agent, the companies said. The listings will link back to HAR.com so consumers can obtain more detailed information about the property, neighborhood, listing agent and brokerage.
