Trulia‘s Android app has been designed for house hunting on the go and is perfect for buyers, sellers, and renters. To begin, hit the Menu button and choose whether you’d like to see houses for sale, for rent, or comparable listings that have already sold. Further options for finding exactly what you want include price range, # beds & baths, square footage, property type, and more. Click ‘Apply’ to update the current viewable map area with your specifications.

Clicking on a bubble marker opens a preview of the property which displays the price, recent price changes, the address, and a photo (plus the details specified above). This intermediary preview is the perfect bridge between the map display and the full listing details which can be accessed by simply clicking the preview. This lets you quickly browse the basic information of a location without having to change through multiple windows.

The full listing page features all property photos as well as a button to open the street view. The street view is a nice way to check out the neighborhood since pictures of just the house don’t always tell the whole story. Another valuable info tidbit is the assessed property taxes for the previous year, since paying these is a huge burden in most cases. If you’ve found a place you’d like to see in person, the contact information of the real estate agent is also included on the full listing page!

Pros:

  • Enhanced real estate search functionality with an exceptional user interface
  • Full listings include essential property details, home facts, and price history
  • View agent contact info and call/message them instantly
  • Save properties and searches (requires Trulia account)



Areas for improvement:

  • Expand support for additional countries (currently U.S. only)



Conclusion: One of the best Android apps for finding a house to buy, place to rent, or to simply browse local real estate information.
