Google Getting More Serious About Real Estate Search

By
Real Estate Agent with Kristal Pooler & Associates. Coast & Country Properties Inc.

I have been using Trulia and pay for the 'Trulia Pro' package. I like the services and exposure provided. I dislike the ability to not have as much robust editing of my listings as say, Zillow. I read today the Google is on the verge of buying Trulia. Google is attracted to Trulia, among other reasons, due to Trulia's deep integration of Google Maps. It will be intersting to see what this does in the realm of real estate search, Here is an article about the potential deal

I think its only a matter of time before Google is a major force web site for real estate. They seem to dominate.
