Another housing “innovation” is upon us with Trulia Real Estate Search. Think MLS meets Google Maps meets your local agent’s site.

Trulia is an independent and unbiased residential real estate search engine that gives you free and open access to real estate information.
Trulia helps you search homes for sale and other residential real estate property information directly from hundreds of thousands of real estate Web sites. As an independent information source, Trulia offers you tools and unbiased information to compare properties and locations.

For instance, according to Trulia, that property that we’ve been keeping our eye on at 300 Sea Cliff Avenue is priced at $2,640 per square foot (versus a local average of $551) and has been on the market for well over two years (versus a neighborhood average of 64 days). We’re sticking with our original advice and “suggest waiting another year or two to see if they’ll knock a little something off the asking.”
