Home Buying in 34602>Question Details

Louisebmalco…, Home Buyer in New York, NY

The tax assesser's office is incorrect in stating we have 2 bedrooms. We would like the trulia site to state the correct number which is three.

Also, the living area is 1947 sq ft. Under air is 1545 sq ft. We know people looking for homes go to your site and we want it to reflect the correct information. It makes a huge difference to someone looking. Zillow has it correct.

Help the community by answering this question:


From a practical stand point, the official information is the information that one finds on the tax records. If there are inconsistencies, the owner should resolve them.....only then should any agent/agency adjust there information to anything other than what is stated publically in these records.

There can be much more to adjusting from a two to a three bedroom home. There may be other regulation involved that could be impacted based on regulations and codes......

If Zillow has it as a 3 bedroom and trulia has it as a 2 bedroom there is obviously a conflict. My guess is that your listing agent accepted your stated information without verifying the records while trulia based their information on what was presented in the tax records.

Either way, one must be very careful, making certain that the information that is presented is accurate.

Hope this helps.
