Trulia has updated a mobile app that it designed specifically for agents to allow listing check-ins and insights to be shared over Facebook, Twitter and agents’ Trulia profiles.

When an agent tours a home and "checks in," an alert is posted to the listing agent. Agents can also receive inquiries from consumers.

Editor’s note: This story has been updated to correct that according to Trulia, listings with check-ins get twice as many views, not four times as originally reported.

Trulia has updated a mobile app that it designed specifically for agents to allow listing check-ins and insights to be shared over Facebook, Twitter and agents’ Trulia profiles.

When an agent tours a home and "checks in," an alert is posted to the listing agent. Agents can also receive inquiries from consumers.

Listings with check-ins get twice as many views as property listings without check-ins, said Heather Fernandez, Trulia’s vice president of agent services.

Trulia first released a mobile app for agents for the iPhone that featured property check-ins and lead notifications in December 2011.

The following August, listing syndicator ListHub instituted a policy restricting the use of listings in agent tools, including mobile apps designed for real estate agents by Trulia and others.

The change was required under the terms of a new syndication agreement between Trulia and ListHub’s parent company, Realtor.com operator Move Inc.

Although ListHub is the largest syndicator of listings data to third-party sites like Zillow and Trulia, those sites can also get listings directly from multiple listing services and brokers.
