Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com – Creating A Free Account

REALTOR.com®, Zillow, and Trulia are the top 3 ranked real estate websites on the internet. Consumers use these websites to search for homes more than anywhere else, which translates into more quality consumers spending more time looking at your listings.
These sites help to create more exposure for your listings by attracting more buyers, which helps YOUR online presence as well. HOWEVER it is important for you to know that if you have not created free accounts on these sites you are missing out.
For example if you have not registered on Zillow, when a consumer views a listing, your information does not stand out from the competition. By registering, you bring more exposure to yourself through options like your photo, a brief profile, and a link back to your website.
