Trulia has refashioned the way it displays new-home listings on its search results and property detail pages to more accurately label homes by type and consolidate information about a new-home listing’s community.

Up until now, Trulia treated new-home listings as it would any other, Trulia spokesman Matt Flegal told Inman News.

A Trulia new-home search results page now shows a plan name (if the listing is preconstruction) and a clickable name of the community the plan or newly built house is a part of. Listings are also tagged with a “New Community” label.

Trulia also now provides links to all plans or house styles in the new-home community on new-home listings’ property detail pages. (See, for example, the “Pinehurst Plan” in the Austin, Texas, new-home community Maravilla at Avaa.) The detail pages also include additional community information and a link to new community detail pages that provide further information about the new-home community.

Trulia, which has displayed new-home listings since its launch, currently gets listings directly from more than 800 builders and through two new-home syndication platforms, and, Flegal said.

BDX operates the new-home listing sites and

Thanks to “historic” changes to the operating agreement with Move that the National Association of Realtors authorized in a special July meeting, began displaying 44,000 new-home listings from BDX in August.

Trulia’s rival Zillow also gets listings directly from builders and has had new-home listings on its site since launch. Zillow, like Trulia, gets new-home listings from, a Zillow spokeswoman told Inman News.

Editor’s note: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated that Zillow does not receive new-home listings from syndicators. In fact, in addition to listings it gets directly from builders, Zillow receives new-home listings from syndicator
