In an effort to provide consumers with the most current information, Trulia is now updating the listing data it receives directly from multiple listing services (MLS) on a continuous basis, the company said today.
In 2012, Trulia began updating its direct MLS-sourced data four times per day, after moving to once-a-day updates in late 2011. Now, Trulia checks in with the MLSs it gets direct feeds from every 10 minutes, and updates listings on its site accordingly.
