Trulia is a real estate search engine that allows people to search for homes online and provides real estate information to help them make better decisions in the process. Their "Trulia Voices" are very popular in local neighborhoods and are a great way for individuals to get real estate related questions answered. I've found it great for someone who is relocating for a job and needs information on specific neighborhoods, or just wants advice from a local real estate professional.

Trulia, one of the Web's most visited home listing sites, on Aug. 25 is introducing a tool available on Apple's iPhone that can locate all the listings and open houses in a user's vicinity.

The free software application uses navigation technology to summon data and displays the results on an interactive map. It lets users call up such information as price, photos, square footage, and number of bedrooms. Another tap of the screen sends a call or e-mail directly to the listing agent.
