This homeâ€™s listing agent can tell you more about this place that I can (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). You can email the agent from listing page using the orange â€œContact Agentâ€ button to the right of the home photos.
Or, you can look for other local agents on Trulia here: http://www.trulia.com/voices/directory/
Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!
Guess what â€¦ if the listing has the logo for RealtyTrac ...
Then what you are seeing is NOT an actual listing â€¦ it is an advertisement for RealtyTrac.
RealtyTrac is a provider of data for distressed homes. This data is used by investors and Realtors to track distressed homes. When you see the RealtyTrac logo, you are not looking at a home that is actually available for you to buy: what you are seeing at is either (1) the notice of default for one of the mortgages on the property in question, (2) a notice of an impending trustee sale or (3) a notice of a completed trustee sale.
RealtyTrac notices can be very deceptive because they usually give loan amounts, not the purchase price or fair market value. When and if this particular property hits the market, it will be at market price for the neighborhood.
Bottom line: RealtyTrac is trying to get you to sign up for their service.
