Find a Home Where You Can Be You with Trulia + Enter to Win $25K #TruliHome

I received compensation for this post as part of a promotional program with Trulia and MomSelect, regardless all opinions expressed below are my own.


If you follow me on social media or here on the blog, you've probably noticed that the Harmon family has been on the move this summer! By on the move, I don't mean we've been dancing and traveling... although we have been lucky enough to do a little bit of both. I mean that we moved into a new house, finally! Can I get a little "hip, hip, hooray"?

Both my husband and I are so excited to have finally found the house for us, but let's get real: house hunting for the perfect place is overwhelming. We spent hours just driving around through neighborhoods we liked, some nights I would stay up until sunrise looking at listings online and writing down little notes about each house. During the month of May, house hunting is all we did in our free time and it was getting old. Browsing listings on local forums without any of them actually panning out to be anything worthwhile was becoming a daunting task; I was just about to give up the search and re-new our lease, but then I started using Trulia.

What's Trulia? Well, it's basically a house hunters dream, whether you are wanting to rent or buy! Trulia is one of the leading destinations for home buyers and renters, it's a website/service that makes finding a home, condo, or any piece of real estate an easy and enjoyable experience, for everyone involved. Whether you are the type who likes to debate over board games in your birthday suit while lounging in your lush backyard or the type of couple that spends hours loudly practicing your whale language skills in your acoustically pleasing loft, Trulia will be able to find the perfect place for you!


After we found Trulia, the house hunting game changed for us. I was able to adjust my search to only include places that fit into our price range, that were in the area I wanted to remain within, with the amount of bedrooms and bathrooms I preferred, and so on. Adjusting the search parameters made it easy to find houses we fell in love with, but our next hurdle to overcome was other couples falling in love with the same home.

It's a dog-eat-dog world in real estate, so having Trulia's e-mail alerts and notifications set to alert me on my phone when new listings were available in my area was a huge help! These notifications allowed us to be some of the first eyes to view the listings and ultimately helped us snag our cute little place before anyone else!

After about three days of new listings being sent to my phone, I knew I had finally found the one when I saw the front of our new place in the photos, then we drove by the outside and we both fell in love. Butterflies were fluttering all over the bushes in the front with a beautiful pink & red flowered vine growing along the trellis, an oversized backyard, quirky details within the home like original hardwoods and built-in dressers, our place is perfect for us and we knew it from the second we saw it on Trulia!

Whether we are walking around in the backyard singing silly songs that rhyme to our dogs or dancing in our pajamas on top of the couch on Saturday morning, we are free to be us without worrying about disturbing neighbors on each side of our apartment walls now. It feels so nice to be able to freely express our silly selves and we have Trulia to thank for our new digs to be so silly within.
