SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 13, 2011 –Trulia.com ( www.trulia.com ), a top site for homebuyers, sellers and renters, announced today a partnership with ListGlobally, a global property listings firm, to provide Trulia users with the ability to search for homes outside the U.S. Trulia will be ListGlobally’s exclusive partner in the U.S. for international real estate search. Trulia plans to launch the international search feature in the first half of 2011 to address increased consumer interest in the global property market.
“We live in a global marketplace and more and more Americans are expanding their home search beyond U.S. borders. Our users are moving overseas for jobs or they may be interested in second homes and places to retire,” said Pete Flint, CEO and co-founder of Trulia. “We are excited to launch global search capabilities because it is important for us to establish Trulia as the one-stop shop for the real estate needs of all of our users.”
ListGlobally currently offers listings in 17 different countries and plans to rapidly expand their listings throughout the year.
