Digital Real Estate Roundup: TurnHere, Trulia, Redfin

Lots of doings in the digital real estate space this week. Consider...

1) Brad Inman's TurnHere, conceived as a video-driven neighborhood guide, relaunches with a new design and a suite of fresh NYC neighborhood videos. Seen at right: part of the video guide to midtown street eats. Yum. [TurnHere]
2) Listings metasearch site Trulia continues to expand and tweak its features, including a new gallery view feature that allows searching by photo thumbnail, not address. Growth, however, doesn't come without pain. Curbed has learned that Corcoran parent company NRT requested earlier this month that Trulia not crawl its site; as a result, Corcoran listings don't appear on Trulia at this time. (UPDATE: We had written that Elliman listings had also been yanked, but Trulia says that isn't the case. Sorry about that.) [Trulia NYC]
3) Of potential greater concern for big brokerages: Seattle upstart Redfin, whose stated goal is to disintermediate real estate brokers by offering off-the-shelf services for a lower flat fee, just raised $8 million in venture capital moolah, TechCrunch reports. They're expanding down the west coast, with plans to "go national" later this year. [Redfin]
