Frankly, pocket listings are bad for sellers who sacrifice the highest possible price for their home because of limited exposure.

Yet, in the past, it was difficult to direct consumers to a resource where they could obtain the information themselves. Trulia has released what they believe is a solution for this difficult issue: Crime Maps. Agents can suggest that consumers use Crime Maps to perform their own research about neighborhood safety.
