It’s a great place to see what kinds of questions real estate buyers and sellers have.
It’s loaded with head-scratching, “What the hell are they thinking?” answers from real estate pros. It’s cheap entertainment.
You can learn something there. Sometimes you just have to dig a bit (which is true of any on-line community).
And it’s actually not a bad place to pull in a prospect or two (though I’d have to question the ROI that folks who have answered hundreds and hundreds of questions are getting).
Trulia has some trulyia cool and wicked smart people working for them, and they do come up with some nifty ideas. The latest is adding RSS feeds to Voices profiles. This allows one to create cool widgets like this:
That’s not a bad thing to put in a blog sidebar or static web site page. I’d like to see the Trulia wizards find a way to do two things: 1) have the click send the reader to my answer (so I don’t have to put my sometimes too wordy answers in the widget), and 2) get “Question Removed” out of the RSS feed all together. It would be nice too if I could set the number of Q&As to display. But other than that, I think I’ll slap this guy up on the sidebar here and give it a little test drive.
Want one? EZ instructions are at the Trulia blog.
