Trulia’s valuation is said to be between $150 million and $200 million. Google has completed six transactions recently, spending a total of $1 billion, and Reuters has reported that Google CEO Eric Schmidt sees one small acquisition a month..

Microsoft?), but it seems that Google is not interested in a bidding war, and so far, nothing more has been said publicly.
