Usually if the address isn't included, it's a RealtyTrac listing and they want you to sign up.

If the listing has the logo for RealtyTrac ...

Then what you are seeing is NOT an actual listing … 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.

If you want to know when these or similar properties will actually hit the market, have a Realtor set you up with an auto-feed that will alert you the moment they become active on the MLS.

odeankenneth,
It would be good business, if the business was selling homes. Realtytrac sells subscriptions to their site and most of the homes you see here advertised by them will either never come on the market or will be priced substantially different from what they suggest when/if they do.

The only home on Purdue St in North Port that I think you are referring to is listed on Trulia as a Foreclosure/Lis Pendens. It is not actually for sale. Realty Trac posts homes that have been served a lis pendens and could possibly go into foreclosure, but the owners could also catch up on payments and the house may not go up for sale. If you want to search for properties that are actually for sale, you want to look for the words For Sale in the upper right corner of listings on Trulia.

You can also search the actual MLS listings on my web site at: http://www.tammyhayes.remaxagent.com/. I would be happy to help you find a home in North Port. If you could send your search criteria, I can set you up to receive listings automatically. Let me know if I can answer any other questions you may have.
