Trulia Logo 2Today, Trulia announced the addition of 400,000 foreclosure listings to their index of more than 2 million searchable homes for sale. These additions were accomplished via partnership with RealtyTrac.

“In response to increased consumer interest, we are excited to introduce integrated foreclosure search capability on Trulia.com,” said Trulia co-founder and CEO Pete Flint. “At Trulia, we recognize that the foreclosure process is an extremely complicated one for both buyer and seller. By adding foreclosure data to Trulia.com, we are providing a one-stop destination where consumers can locate properties, research their local market and get qualified advice from local professionals on the complexities of buying a foreclosure property.”

“Trulia.com is one of the most innovate real estate sites on the Internet, and we’re excited to have them as a venue for RealtyTrac’s foreclosure data,” said Rick Sharga, vice president of marketing for RealtyTrac. “We believe this partnership will benefit consumers using Trulia, whether they are specifically looking to buy a foreclosure or whether they researching foreclosure trends to help them make an informed decision about buying a resale property.”

According to Kelly Roark, Vice President of Industry Development at Trulia:

  • Foreclosure properties are highlighted by specific stage – pre-foreclosure, auction or bank-owned – to help educate consumers about the multifaceted foreclosure market.
  • The increase in listings volume provides a better user experience, which drives up consumer traffic and opportunities for properties to be seen.
  • More opportunities on Trulia Voices for real estate professionals to provide expert advice regarding foreclosures, especially since more than 10% of Trulia Voices questions relate to foreclosures – above both open homes and FSBO questions.
  • More chances for agents to demonstrate their expertise in the foreclosure process and in handling complex home transactions.

Syndication to Trulia’s search engine is one of several options available to you when you create Show Flyers at Real Estate Shows.
