    Since Trusty recently launched home reviews in the nine county area surrounding Sacramento, we thought it's a great opportunity to challenge our community to submit the most creative, insightful, entertaining reviews of active listings on the market.  

    Announcing MARKET MADNESS, a first-of-its-kind home review contest where participants can win prizes ($100 Amazon Gift Cards) by reviewing homes for sale in the Greater Sacramento Area.  All you need to do is browse active listings, find ones that look interesting to you, and submit a review about the house.  You don't have to have any housing experience... just an interest in real estate and a critical eye for pointing out the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to homes on the market.  We're giving awards for the most helpful review, the funniest review, and the most reviews submitted so there are multiple ways to win this competition.
