Trulia is a service that enables users to get an impression on the lifestyle and atmosphere of a neighbourhood in the USA before moving there. On their website, users can search for a home for sale or rent using various filters, such as size, public transport connection and pet allowance, so Trulia can make suggestions based on their requests. In addition, interested parties can get detailed and authentic insights into neighbourhoods. These insights include information such as the distance to places of interest, educational institutions, restaurants, groceries, nightlife, safety and crime, ratings by locals, shopping, as well as maps and photos.
Trulia collects data in the form of original neighbourhood photos, drone footage, resident reviews and local insights. The service then organises the data and provides it on their website.
Trulia is one of the over 550 use cases published on the European Data Portal. If you are aware of another inspiring use case, share your experience and knowledge on different applications and websites using open data with the EDP via mail, Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.
