I come across very few real estate blogs or sites that will say anything nice about sites like Zillow or Trulia or HomeGain or a dozen other sites that have a reputation for data mining leads and "selling them back" to Realtors. I think of the three, Trulia probably has the best street cred with things like Trulia Ambassadors and what have you.
In fact, I recently got a come on from Trulia about their Spoltlight and Featured ads -- something called Trulia Pro. It looks pretty legit and it's a ton lot cheaper than ,say, Realtor.com. But is it for real? Is any of it for real or are these just more johnny-come-lately and Realtor.com wannbes that want to stick their hands in my pockets.
Probably, more to the point, even if they get a gazillion page views a day what does it matter if no one can get a mortgage anyway?
Inquiring minds want to know!
