Trulia real-estate website, a leading source of data on home sales, is offering users an interactive interface that lets them find properties, search for deals, and compare prices.
The website, which lets users purchase homes for as little as $50, also offers real-time traffic data, which it says helps it rank the homes they have purchased in the past.
Trulia is offering an upgrade to its mobile app this year, but the website’s mobile app remains free.
“Real-time data gives us insight into how our users are searching for homes and what they’re purchasing,” Trulia CEO Matthew Roth said in a statement.
“By analyzing the traffic and buying history of real estate websites and mobile apps, we’re able to improve our product and service for our users.”
Trulia also said it plans to offer real-name verification and email address verification for customers who want to verify their email address when they sign up for the service.
It is also adding a credit card processing tool that will allow people to buy homes without the need to wait for a credit report to come back from credit bureaus.
In a blog post on Wednesday, Roth wrote: “When we launched Trulia in 2016, our team was overwhelmed by the demand for real-life data and real-person engagement.
Over the past three years, Trulia has become one of the most valuable sources of real-world information for homebuyers and renters alike.”
Trulia also plans to launch an app to let users browse through their home inventory, and to add new features such as “Trulia for home sales.”
Trusted sourcesTrulia’s real-search feature also has a twist.
It lets users search on a specific name, such as a home or business, instead of just a list of properties.
For example, if you search for “Trumans” in the search box, you’ll get results for properties with the name “Truman” on them, as well as properties with different names.
The company said this feature will be rolled out over time.For more:
