Trulia - New Google Maps real estate mashup

The Mercury News 'Silicon Beat' blog has reported on a new Google Maps real estate mashup called Trulia. Here is an excerpt from the posting:

"..Trulia's housing listings have a nice feel. The site is a lot like HousingMaps the mashup of Google and Craigslist that we've mentioned before. Trulia appears to be working more closely with agents, and so pulling in housing information from real estate sites, as opposed to Craigslist listings. Right now, it provides only California listings, whereas HousingMaps has the whole country. Trulia, started by some Stanford students, is based in San Francisco and San Mateo. It has some fun searches like "Early employee at Google?," which lists the multi-million dollar homes within a 10-mile radius of Google's headquarters in Mountain View. Though, as Om Malik points out, the company might want to consider changing its name."
