Online real estate site Trulia.com says it has acquired Movity, a startup that promises to help homebuyers and renters learn more about the area they’re considering living in.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. In addition to movity.com — a site that promises to help users determine the safety of a prospective location, who lives next door, and what locals have to say about the area — Movity is the creator of social media check-in tracker weeplaces.com.

The Movity team includes Eric Wu, co-founder of RentWiki.com; Sha Hwang, design technologist from Stamen Design; Vaughn Koch, program manager from Bing; and Zain Memon, a contributor to the open-source framework Django.
