We're all responsible adult professionals, right?
And yet, how many agents do you think are not going to bother with Trulia verifications?
Honestly, in the past month, I jumped through hurdles in order to get another realtor to verify that the withdrawn listing he had was in reality a listing where he had worked both sides. The listing had closed. Finally, through some legwork, I was able to get to the title company and they were able to confirm the sale was arm's length. This was critical to my buyer's appraiser.
Yet, the agent never responded to emails or to phone calls, even when verbally agreeing to follow up an serve appropriate documentation to the appraiser.
I can apprecaiate Trulia trying to enhance their profile strategy, but if part of that is dependent on the other agent taking a step, I fear it won't work well. If the agent doesn't comply, then the sale will show as "not verified".
Let me take my rose-colored glasses off for a moment and consider if agents will purposefully deny to verify. Yes, I'm pretty certain that will occur as well.
Lets see at what point Trulia tweaks that part of the process.
