Like, but
Trulia is fun to use on travel: however, it assumes you are actively looking for real estate and starts to send you house recommendations. I have had to ask realtors to stop solicitations, which they are happy to do. It would be nice to indicate to the App whether you were SERIOUSLY looking, or just looking. Also, when you choose a house to look at from the list, it does NOT indicate where the house is on the MAP like Zillow. I really like that feature on Zillow. Trulia allows you to REMOVE BOUNDARY and look where ever you want. This is handy when looking for, example, lakefront and are flexible with location. It doesn’t leave much room for privacy, since anyone can look up how much anyone else just spent for a house or how much anyone’s house is worth, indicating how much wealth someone has. I also wonder if less honorable people case a neighborhood. I, in general, like to see the cost of living by looking up houses while on the road. I also enjoy looking at gorgeous houses in my favorite vacation neighborhoods.

OK, but some annoying glitches
I get email alerts of properties that may interest me, and downloaded this app thinking it would be easier to view them on my iPhone than opening in my browser. It’s not really. The email links now open only in the app, no choice. When I go through an email I may click on several properties so I can then delete the email. The properties stack up in the app, and there appears to be no choice but to see them in that order. To see the next property I must close the one I’m looking at, and can’t go back unless I favorite it. I don’t want all those favorites, just an ability to move between three or four properties. There also seems to be no way to get a link to send without starting a false text and then copying the link. Even starting a false email does not give a copyable link. Yes, I can send a direct email to someone through the app, but that is usually not what I want to do. I want a link I can paste into an email or text I am writing outside the app. If there are solutions to these issues they are ones I have not been able to find in way too much time spent looking, which reflects on the usability of the app. These issues are annoying enough that I am going back to using my browser, and since there’s no choice where things open that means deleting the app entirely.

I like it and I don't
Like I'm sure others have said, you c ant clear recommended, and sometimes the recommendations are no where near what you're interested in, or can even afford (as much as I'd like to be able to afford a quarter million dollar home, throwing it in my face doesn't help :)). Another issue I have is the FEED. It started out being a good thing. But now, houses I've no interest in (maybe saved them at one point but are no longer) pop on and off the market DAILY, and fill the entire feed. There has to be away to report listings that are constantly on and off the market (possible fake listings) or at least remove them permanently. I don't want to see the same two houses 24 times on my feed jumping on and off he market. However, the positives are that typically I find more houses on this app than I do others. I call them "Hidden" listings, because living in a woodsy and farmsy Midwestern state, a lot of listings in these areas don't get listed on other apps, from what I can tell at least. With the last update I thought it was easier to "unsave" listings, but with them popping up a hundred times in my feed, I'm not so sure it worked haha. I still use the app, just think it could be better. N

Useful app
It’s useful and easier to navigate compared to other apps. The listings go up a bit later but if you aren’t looking in a super hot zone where days matter, it’s a pretty good app. There needs to be a cancel for request information and the DTI meter I think is backwards too. There definitely need to be some fixes but like I said, it’s easier to navigate. Also, foreclosures, more are listed on this app than the other apps I use, and they more often than not, they pan out to still be up for sale. I actually type the addresses into Zillow, as they sometimes provide pictures inside. Trulia provides a street view always so you can get a rough feeling on how the neighborhood is and if the house needs a lot of TLC on the outside or not. Trulia’s maps of disaster, crime and what not are extremely useful and accurate thus far. It has its flaws but it also provides some aspects other apps don’t.

Looking to Relocate? Trulia is the app to use!!!
I find this app to be very helpful and for the most part it has been accurate as far as crime rates in the neighborhoods and reviews on local schools, etc. which is a plus for me and something that is very important to consider always. I found my first apartment using this trulia app and it was quick and simple and made it a pleasant and hassle free process and experience. I was able to do everything through the app such as viewing photos, read reviews, and schedule a visit to view the property while also having the accessibility to any other contact information I might need if I had any further questions which I was surprised and thankful I received prompt responses from the agents. Great app definitely recommended to anyone looking to make your next move!!!

App/Listings don’t follow filters
I used to really enjoy using Trulia. The interface was cleaner and more user friendly than some of the other apps (layout, ability to swipe through pictures). However, I’m assuming to some changes, searching for properties that fit my specifications has become annoying and cumbersome: 1) Lot size is very important to me but I can’t sort my search results by lot size. 2) I’m not interested in condos, apartments, lots/land, or auctions but those properties frequently show up in my results, no matter what filters I apply to my search. This wouldn’t have been a problem in the past, however 3) there is no longer an option to hide properties that I don’t care for. This was always a great option to have because I know that there are some properties that I won’t change my mind on, however I have to see them and scroll past a ton of them without the option to hide. I used to love what Trulia does, now I just get so frustrated with the fact that it’s not allowing a personalized search that I’m going to have to delete it.

Too engrossing!
Since I’ve downloaded this app, initially looking for coastal retirement home in an area of the country I’m not terribly familiar with, I’ve lost days and days of my time. I open the app, I begin searching, and the next thing I know 10 hours have gone by and I want to keep looking! Searching for a home, naturally, takes a lot of time. But this app has allowed me to become so familiar with home trends in places I never thought to look that I’ve expanded my search to pretty much the entire country. I’ve tried other real estate listing searches and none of them compare to the information this app brings to my searching finger tips, on a whim. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 is because it does not allow my search to expand outside the USA. I mean if I’m looking for a coastal home, why wouldn’t I also consider the Caribbean, Mexico, South America? Why doesn’t Trulia provide those listings? Get to work folks!

Trulia the truth
The option of circling the area you want covered to narrow your search is one of the best options granted on the trulia app. That gives you exactly how far where your search is from where you currently are. The mortgage and tax history is laid out for you and most of the properties has a good amount of pictures to help narrow your search. After you circle your scrub area you can choose from map by clicking the green price tag on the map or what I like to do is switch to the map view and scroll through the listings that way. All in all for house hunting and I’m sure for apartment hunting just the same Trulia helps you get the job done. Now idk if Trulia excludes certain listings or provides some that other apps don’t have, that might be based on bank and realtor agreements with the app itself but like I said this app to me is a wave. Easy and convenient. Helpful app so go and cop that you heard! Happy hunting.

I Used to Like This App
When this app sends you updates and recommendations for areas you are interested in buying in, it’s great. I’m searching for homes exclusively in the NH seacoast region and no where else. But somehow it started sending me recommendations for San Diego, CA claiming it’s based on my search history. I never searched for homes in San Diego, there is no way that I can find to disable that search location in the app, and I’ve sent two email requests to disable that search and both have gone unanswered. Now I’m getting emails and recommendations almost exclusively for homes in San Diego, which I could care less about, and my desired search area is virtually ignored. The app is now useless to me. Why can’t the developers allow you to disable search areas? How hard can that be? So be careful if you do a search for a friend or out of curiosity search in a location you’re only mildly interested in because then you’ll be inundated with results from those areas and not be able to turn it off!

Wonderful App
I use this app on the daily to look at houses and have used this app to move into a home before. I like that it asks residents their opinions on the area they live in as well as information on parking, how festive the neighborhood is, etc., and that it shows the crime rate in the area of a particular house. It answers most of the questions you have for a realtor before your actual appointment with them! Well thought out and easy to navigate! The only problem I have with this app is with the houses I have saved that are no longer available or off market. I can’t remove them from my saved list. I have tried over and over but I can’t get the houses to fall off of my saved list which is irritating because then my saved houses that are currently available get buried under houses that haven’t been available for months. Other than that, I love the app!

Probably great for studios, infuriating for bigger
This app should be great. I appreciate that one of the filters is how close it is to public transportation stops, something I haven’t seen on other similar apps I’ve tried. However, when using filters, particularly price and bedroom number, it’s immensely flawed. Instead of searching out places that offer the selected number of rooms within your budget, it finds places that offer units that meet either criteria. So if you’re looking for a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment, it pulls up places with studios in your budget even though units in the size you’re actually needing are way over budget. Trying to sort through them all to find one that actually works for you is such a headache. All that said, if they correct this I think it will be one of the more helpful apps of its kind. (Also their “leave feedback” button is giving an error, so this is currently the only way to make suggestions like this).

Love this app except for 1 thing
Love this app and its functionality, the option to remove boundaries when searching, the filters, the mapping, etc. all fantastic. I just have one problem: some of us who are retired are interested in low-cost housing which means looking at mobile homes in nice areas. The app never lists the space rent. All mobile home parks have space rent. So when a mobile home only costs maybe $150,000,Or $80,000, but the space rent is $1800 a month, that makes it prohibitive. Under HOA they list “none”When that is where the space rent should be listed because it’s the equivalent of paying an HOA fee in a condo complex. If they changed this feature and made it more honest, I would give this app five stars for sure.

Decent app, one major flaw
I like this app because it has a lot of options, especially viewing neighborhood data like schools and crime etc... However there is a huge problem of moron jerk faces posting “lot” or “land” that “would be great to build on” and crap like that on home listings. Additionally when builders list “not yet built” but list “plans and a lot”. This is so frustrating and these listings should be pulled. They should have their own section for people who actually are interested in that. This app would be 5 miles ahead of all other platforms if they would add the ability to “report” those listings, to be pulled so that everyone doesn’t have their time wasted by lying manipulative jerks. Perhaps if a certain user gets 3 or more flags in a given time they should have their account suspended. This is an ongoing problem lately and I’m sure I’m not the only prospective buyer getting mad about this.

Great App
I can’t speak for sellers but as a potential home purchaser I love this app. They include lots of information that includes crime school taxes home insurance you name it and although some sellers for one reason or another do not include photos they still tell you s much as possible but to buyers I am not going to check out a house that I have no idea what it looks inside As a single woman with only one income I cannot afford an expensive home and many lower cost homes are in crime ridden neighborhoods but being able to see the crime and names of the actual crimes committed over the passed year is a very useful tool that I have not found in any other reality app.

They changed it.
I have several apps for searching for houses that I refer to. Trulia was not my favorite for this reason - you have to actually click on a house to see the pics instead of being able to quickly scan across the pics from the main page. This seems like a little thing, but when you're looking at so many houses, and looking at many of the same houses again and again, these things make a difference. That having been said, Trulia had something that none of the others had - maps of the crime in the area of the house. This was invaluable, and I would get all my addresses and plug them in here to see those crime maps. And now it seems that they've taken that off. On my mom's phone and mine, we can't find it there anymore. That's a shame. Not much reason for me to keep using this now.

Impossible to stop unwanted notifications
About 10 months ago, I was using Trulia to search for houses in two areas, let's call them A and B. Eight months ago, I stopped looking for houses in area B. However, I continued to receive notifications in the app for new listings in area B. This continued for months, so I finally contacted support and asked how I could disable notifications for area B when I was no longer interested in it. After two months of back-and-forth with their 'support' person along with mutliple pinkie-promises that it would be fixed as well as lots of "just wait seven more days!!!!", I was finally told it was my own fault and to wait another 30 days for it to clear. (Nevermind the insults!) I've wasted an incredible amount of time on an app that basically shows pretty pics and lots of inaccurate listing information. I am now using the MLS directly with my realtor, the information is 1000% more accurate, and I don't get unending empty promises from a company with useless customer support.

Great Potential with Limitations
I’m thankful for the flexibility in this app. It can easily transition categories, from ‘rental’, to ‘for sale’, to ‘sold’. My partner and I used this app to successfully find our current rental and are now using it for house hunting; sort of. If you select ‘single family home’ there shouldn’t be any townehomes, row houses, or attached living spaces. Furthermore, when we type ‘garage’ as an added feature I’d rather the list not include options with ‘garage parking’. Lastly, and probably the feature trulia has the most control over, is I wish there was a ‘remove option’. I understand that the houses viewed are ‘grayed out’ but I think it’d be especially helpful in deselecting houses/units which are undesirable. The app is otherwise easy to use, intuitive, and I’m grateful that turning off notifications/emails is easily achieved. I’d give it a 3.5 if possible.

Want to love but GLITCHES
I’m giving up on this app because the glitches make it almost unusable and I came here to see if other people have been having the same issue thinking maybe there will be an update that will fix this soon but I see reviews from 4 years ago about the same thing so clearly it’s not something the will fix. Recommendations are not accurate to the saved searches and now I’m bombarded with 20+ notifications a day for places not even close to my location or budget or what I’m looking for. Also when you go into saved searches and try to delete them they never actually delete. Filters never seem to work accurately and the fact that I can’t edit and delete the searches and recommendations makes it unusable and if people have been complaining about it for over 4 years it’s time to pick a different platform.

Updates are bad
A lot of changes were made to the app in the most recent update that weren’t that great. I regret applying the update to the point I don’t even want to use the app anymore. When I search for a specific address now I get a map boundary of the area the house could be. It’s like a game which green oval on the map is the house I was looking for. Before I could search an address and it would pull up the exact listing. The history of what you have viewed is gone. Previously you could click on a house it would turn grey and remain grey even after closing the app and reopening it. Now the app only maintains that history until it’s closed. I used this feature every time I used the app. It was helpful in knowing that anything green was new. Now I have to click through everything looking at 100 houses I’ve already looked at. The amount of detail for each listing is gone. Before you could tell the exact type of heat and air conditioning a house had, central, forced air, radiant, etc. now I get a yes or a no whether the house has heat or ac. Along with this you have two categories cooling system and air conditioning, what’s the difference? Cooling system is always yes whether a house has central air or not from what I’ve seen. Cooling system can be yes and air conditioning can be no, it doesn’t make sense.

Bogs down device taking user data and uses up your battery
I’ve used this app for 1+ years and don’t recommend the app because of what it’s doing in the background. Within the last 4-6 months, I’ve noticed reduced performance using my device such as Safari pages taking a long time to load and my battery life quickly eaten away. Battery went from 1-2 days between charging to less than 2 hours if using say to read a book which was less than before. This app owns that it takes your personal info and pretty much anything it can gain from you. The circular icon noting data transfer while in Safari rarely stops even when I’m just reading a long article or using a recipe. When I check battery usage, Trulia is like 86% of use!! Sorry but “free” app is taking too much so I’ve deleted. I’ll go back to using RE sites through web browsers which are better at limiting data grab.

5 years ago, pet policy
Looking for a home is always a struggle and it only gets harder when you have pets. Being able to specify more on what your looking for would be really helpful. I am constantly waisting time on homes that wont accept my pet due to size or breed. Im unsure why the renters are able to specify small or large dogs but as someone looking for a home i only get the dog or cat option. We should be able to filter more options or maybe a more advanced profile where i can put in who would live in the household, what breed and size pets i have as well as the types of homes and areas im looking for... Theres alot of areas in our city i would t want to live and it would be nice to be able to highlight areas your interest in or uninterested in. That way you only see properties that match what your looking for.

Love Trulia app!
I have looked at real estate for sale & rent in different parts of the North East & in Northern VA. This app is easy to use. I like it better than the competitors because it has more features. You can get a street view of the property, schools, ratings & a crime report in relation to where the property is located. It shows a color scheme to show the amount of crime. I’ve not seen this on other apps. There is also a map that you can enlarge to see what cities are around your property or you can zoom in for local street details. There are many pictures of the homes inside & out & many details are listed. I give this app an A+.

Notification Spam
The app overall is of a pretty good quality. But ultimately, I had to uninstall it. It sends me too too many notifications. Trulia Prosuct team calls these “alerts”. I even gave it a second chance, and bothered to try and reduce the notification spam by toggling settings/preferences. But, that wasn’t enough. The app continued to show a notification indicator with 18 new notifications the next day, even after I had adjusted settings and cleared the existing “alerts”. I don’t know how to make that stop, and I don’t have all day to figure it out. Completely ceasing my engagement with the product and brand was a much easier option. Maybe I will engage again someday? But for now, I’m all about that Zillow and Redfin lifestyle.

Crime rate map
Hi! I love trulia. That’s how I’ve found multiple places to live/rent through college. The one thing I’m a little upset about is that the crime rate map isn’t there anymore. I lived by that thing. I am a paranoid lady and I used that to help determine what I felt was safe enough for me. Obviously it wasn’t the Bible or anything but it was a HUGE help. Now my boyfriends sister is looking for a place to live and it’s a very patchy city. As soon as I heard she was moving I ran to trulia to see the safest areas…and it was gone :’( pls bring it back !:) it was so so helpful especially because my sister is now in college and it can be a helpful tool to her as well. And I will be looking for a house soon so it would be great to have it then!

It would be better if you could delete/change alerts
This app is fine except for one thing. If you are looking for homes in a specific area for a while and then one day you change your mind and would rather look elsewhere, you can’t change your alert settings to exclude the area you don’t want. I keep getting notifications for homes in an area I’m no longer interested in moving to and I 1) can’t delete the alerts, and 2) can’t change the alert criteria to exclude that area. I don’t get any alerts for homes in areas I’m ACTUALLY interested in, which is very annoying. And my alert notifications won’t go away unless I mark them as “read.” I hope this feature is changed with a future update.

app isn’t working anymore
I love this app and I’ve been using it for about a year to look for a new apartment. it started out great and the app was really helpful in my fiancé and I’s search. however, since the last update, the app just isn’t working at all. it’s been about two weeks now that I can’t get the app to even open. I’ve tried redownloading the app a few times but it’s still won’t open. it’s just a blank white screen with a red alert at the bottom that says “cannot open app, please try again later.” I’m not sure if it’s a bug with the new update or if it’s something wrong with my phone, but I’m really disappointed. I’m still getting notifications multiple times a day for new listings and it’s very annoying that I can’t look at them. please fix it so it can be one of my favorite apps again!

By far the best real estate search engine for a while
Trulia is accurate, easy of use, and has all the appropriate features to refine and gather most of the public information available. It has been a must for online search and I have no doubt it will be hard to beat if I rely on their ability to improve their application and website and how smartly they are built. Love it. We used it to source the house we bought in Madison and are using it to hunt for a loft / condo / townhouse in Chicago. Way way better than Zillow... always been and thanks Zillow for not having killed it. Trulia should be your name now Zillow ;)

On the app, I can’t find my ‘searches’ like I could the last time I used the app. Nor only see the homes that have piqued my interest. I can’t swipe away homes I’m not interested in. I get recommendations for locations I’m nowhere near and at prices way beyond my interest. I should be able to have defined parameters to a search, with only notifications for homes fitting those parameters, with ability to ‘deny’ properties and not see them within my search again, and should be able to open my searches each with its own criterion and see only the properties I haven’t ‘refused’ and that fit those criterion... if you want a list of homes available that may or may not be what interest you, this app is super. If you’d like to use this app to narrow your selection and monitor places of interest, go for a different one!!!

Inaccurate and out of date
Do not waste your time on this app if you are seriously looking for a home. This app is always late to post new listings or update existing listings. I am constantly getting notifications for new listings from other home apps and then I get them from Trulia like weeks later. My notifications are set up correctly on Trulia too so this isn’t user error. My husband and I put an offer on a home in the first week of January and it was pending several days later. I JUST got the notification from Trulia this morning saying the home was pending and we are closing on the home tomorrow. Redfin had that weeks ago. That’s almost a month late, Trulia. The only reason I still have this app is for the heat map that shows the crime reports. That’s super helpful and the only reason it got two stars.

Pretty good app
This app is usually one of the most up to date when it comes to new listings. Think it’s pretty good. However, I would highly recommend a dedicated field for Master on the Main. Just like there are fields for number of bedrooms, # of full bathrooms, or half bathrooms there can be a field for Master on Main. It can just say Master on Main: yes/no. That would cut down on time for people who are looking for it or not. There are people who don’t want buy a house with the master on the main fl and there are some who won’t buy a house unless it has that feature. This would also help with filtering because houses can be included or excluded based on the yes/no.

No one replies
I have been on this app for months trying to find a rental property. While the app itself is easy to navigate and use, I can honestly say that I have not heard back from one property management company or landlord at all! It’s a scam that these rentals are requiring application and payment up from to apply to simply view or tour a rental, but to not follow up with you or notify that your application has not been selected for whatever reason is completely unprofessional. There should be a way Trulia can track these scam listings because I refuse to believe I am the only person that has paid to apply for several properties without even a single email or call back. I have since stopped applying now that I’ve caught on, but it’s a shame to be taken advantage of when I am in desperate need and in search for a place to call home.

App is severely glitchy!
Previously this app worked very well however in the past week or two it has been extremely glitchy. It will send me recommendations that are completely outside of my search parameters and also it will send me a push notification for a new property listing only to go to the app and into my alerts and have it tell me to ‘set up’ new alerts as if none are already there. If I hit refresh the previously saved searches list will reappear. Lastly, I tried to report the issues via the ‘report a problem’ option and it redirects me to an apple site where it then tells me that ‘I do not have the product’ in order to do a support request… very frustrating!

Stop hijacking my search with begging
I’m in the middle of a search. I’m looking at a house. Suddenly! As if on cue! The app whisks me out of my view screen and asks, “do you like Trulia?” Uh, no, no I don’t! And if you click YES it sends you to the iTunes Store to leave a review. If you click NO it shunts you into a feedback form to force communication with their developers. If you take me out of my flow to demand feedback, I will give it to you. And you won’t like it. I don’t like the Trulia app. I hate it for its inappropriately-timed begging for feedback. I dislike the fact that you can’t clear or escape the Recommended properties. I think the crime view is fairly inaccurate based on downplaying crime wherever you’re searching, but I could be wrong about this aspect. Aren’t you glad you pushed me to leave feedback, Trulia?

What is missing in Trulia
Good application with the wealth unique and useful information, for example - demographic data. Unfortunately the use of Trulia requires some data from other search engines: walking score, for example. None of the known to me application allows to eliminate from the search something like : carpet floors, first floor of the apartment building, the absence (not the amount) of the reserve account, number of the residents/families in the community, etc . All of this could be additionally supplied (in the extra “broker’s” field) by the knowledgeable listings broker . It will adds listing broker value and make the potential customer contact the source.

I don’t like the fact that there’s no receipt of messages or a way to follow up with places you may be interested in. I’ve tried to look into several places I’ve sent “emails”, “1 click availability”, and I haven’t heard back from 1 of these places and there’s no way to check if you’re “message” has went through or maybe I’m not using the app right idk but as right now, I don’t seem to like how that app works in that aspect. There should be a message area through the app that shows receipt that I reached out to realtors and they can reach back out to clients through the app. I’m waiting on an email (reply) that I don’t even know that was received. Frustrating.

poor and often not showing most listing
This app regularly doesn’t show most of the listings other apps show. Often quite a bit of them. Not sure why anyone would want to use this app. as you won’t see alll the available listings that you may be seeking for a designated area. If you don’t believe me, give it a try by comparing realtor dot com to what this is listing. You’ll easily see at least 25% of the listings are absent in Trulia. The app. itself is tremendously glitchy when searching and clunky to use the settings. When I to contact a listing agent I couldnt get anyone. Instead I got a long list of credit application questions. I was only able to contact someone by calling an actually agency and giving them the MLS number of the home I was looking at. This app is horrible.

Do not request a showing - Constant Spam
I really liked this app for browsing for homes and seeing the data they provide. But seriously, DO NOT request a showing through them. I hardly ever got spam calls before I did and now they pop up every couple hours at least, even with spam blocking. I also kept receiving texts from them trying to get me to use one their agents even though I found my own right after I’d requested the showing initially - I had to block the number they were texting me from. And I still started receiving texts from multiple other agents trying to set up showings. I literally got in touch with my own agent right after sending the request through Trulia and had told them never-mind right away after the first time they texted me they, and I’m still getting constantly hounded.

I used to love this app
I’m not sure what changed but in the past week while scrolling through rental listings I have gotten emails from property managers wanting more information regarding my “inquiry” on their properties that I have not inquired about AT ALL. I am even getting phone calls and I have NO IDEA where they would have gotten my personal cell phone number!!! The only thing I can think of is that option that’s at the forefront of every listing “check availability with one click”-that needs to be placed elsewhere in the listing to avoid accidental touches as it seems sensitive or it should at least be layered with another popup that asks if you are sure you want to proceed-It still DOES NOT explain the phone calls!!!

Was Good
I was enjoying this and found it quite useful for our house hunting. However, about a week ago I started getting notifications for NYC apartment rentals. I don’t live in NY, I have never searched in NY, and I most definitely am not interested in renting. On top of this, suggestions used to be spot on; now they suggest houses which are in no way in my search parameters - not even close. $500,000 homes are not in my family’s budget. Lastly, the app tells me I have 8-10 new notifications and it turns out there is only one. Maybe this is just a bug, but it’s a dumb one. Fix these things and get 5 stars. But the app has been more annoying lately than helpful.

Limited filtering
I have been using a few different apps and trulia is the most inconvenient. They offer less options for filtering. I live in Florida and will only buy a house that has a pool. I entered “pool” as a keyword, yet half of the houses shown don’t have a pool. I don’t have this problem on other apps. Sure this app has a lot of houses, but I spend most of my time looking at ones that should be filtered out. I find better houses faster on other apps like realtor and Zillow because they have better search parameters. Also, I have multiple saved searches set up, and get notified as houses show up, yet my app says I don’t have any saved searches created? Trulia has good potential but needs some work.

Almost perfect
I really like Trulia and it is my go to real estate app but 2 things keep me from giving it 5 stars. First, there is no filter for HOA. I want to search for homes in neighborhoods with NO HOA. The second deficiency is with Trulia’s “Recommended for you” homes. They don’t even come close to my saved search. The homes are often much smaller or on lots that are much smaller than my minimum requirements. Wastes my time looking at them. Things I like: the filters (with exception noted above), the large photos (much larger than most other real estate apps), ability to save homes and search criteria and you can search for homes anywhere in the U.S.

My favorite home app!
I love looking at homes in this app. It is by FAR the best, and I love that it gives me the crime reports especially when looking at areas I am unfamiliar with. My only suggestion for them would be to allow a filter for HOA fees. I am thankful they show them, but I would love to filter out homes that have astronomical HOA fees to make it easier for the future. I also would love a thumbs down button! Sometimes I look at homes I’ve looked at before and just forgot about, I liked the home but there was a reason I didn’t save it to my faves. So just a thumbs or even a check to show me that I’ve previously viewed it, would be great!

Pretty good but could use some tweaks
I like the app but when it comes to renting the person posting the rental should HAVE to provide certain information and pictures. Like how much is a deposit, do they need my credit score(cause some places do require it), are pets allowed(this should have to be answered to let people like pets know if the rental will work for them or not), what utilities are included(and don’t let them put wood floor as a utility or appliances that’s a perk not a utility), must have one pic of each room. This will help save both parties time, if I don’t like what I see on the profile why bother seeing it in person.

Pros and cons
Cons: The major issue I am having right now is that the app won't recognize that I've changed my alert settings. It keeps showing me homes for rent in an area that isn't in my saved searches, and I have unchecked showing homes in the surrounding area. I am purchasing, not renting. Currently, when I try to go to the alert settings it gives me an error message and shows a blank screen. Pros: I enjoy this app for its street view, and it gives more information than other home search apps don't have. Sometimes it even lists homes before Realtor. The price drop alert is a great feature. Other than that, it does what all the other similar apps do.

Almost perfect but too difficult to see lot size
I don’t know exactly why I like this app over others for searching real estate. Something about the base functionality is more fluid or something but I can’t exactly place my finger on it. But I have to use a second app to see details more easily. I believe it’s because the website posts lot size on the photos. The app does not and I think lot size is a key feature for buying. The app doesn’t display it anywhere without expanding menus for mor info and I still have to hunt for it. I’m sure the app could have other improvements but I don’t use it as my primary right now.

I have a love hate relationship with this app. I love the fact that it doesn’t look at specific realtor house (zillow, realtor, etc). My issue is that it is flakey showing houses. I can look at houses one day and then the next day won’t show anything at all! Not even the ones I viewed the day before! Before I would get a message saying nothing found try changing filters. Still wouldn’t show anything. But now I don’t even get that message! No houses show! The app isn’t hanging up. I can still see my favorites. This issue really needs fixed. It happens on all 3 of my devices, but I’ve noticed that my much older tablet doesn’t have this issue as much as the newer devices!

Needs adjustments
I do like the app. I would like to see the app be easier to use. I would like to be able to put a thumbs down for houses I don’t like or I no longer wish to see. I feel like after looking at so many I sometimes end up wasting time looking at the same one again. I would like to also be able to share the same list with my spouse. I will also share the same feed back with other apps . I hope one app can make this possible. I would rather use the app that does. Looking for a house is time consuming enough , I would like to see this be possible I would definitely be easier. Thank you

Worst experience ever
It's too competitive to even rent a home with these apps, Zillow, Trulia, realtor . When I first started using this app, I didn't expect to compete against other people. I thought this would be more of a home warming welcome like I get at the dealership when I go to purchase my first new car I didn't expect it to be like my first job. applying to multiple jobs and hoping and praying to see, which one gives you the opportunity to make money. This is how every app feels when you're looking to rent a home not the best experience I would never recommend using apps for rent maybe for looking to buy homes, but never for rent or leasing, I recommend always walking in to a leasing office for a better experience and better opportunity.

Good luck contacting property owners
2 stars for being able to see pictures of properties and overall ease of searching for apartments using the map. I would give it no stars when it comes to attempting to contact a property owner/manager to inquire of availability. I have reached out to several managers and never receive a call or email reply. Makes me wonder how often listings are updated? What’s the point of this app if I never get a call back to attempt to get an apartment. Other websites seem to be more efficient such as cragsL. Good luck actually trying to get an apartment using this app, you’re better off driving around town and call apartments that have a vacancy sign outside with a phone #.
