Good question!

Like the other agents have said, unfortunately Trulia isn't always 100% accurate or quick about updating their information. 6065 Buggy Whip sold for $297,500 on 1/15/2013. Always best to work with an agent that has access to correct data.

Please let me know if TEAM Patterson can assist you in any way.

This is one reason why Trulia (sorry Trulia) should not be used for sales data or listing data, some of their sources are not very accurate in the way they interpret data (in my opinion) and in the way data fields are matched up.

I dug a little deeper and could not find anything on the Realist tax record that would match the $148,554 price. So I looked at the Trulia property page and clicked on price history and expanded the details for the date 1/15/13, that shows the price calculated on the transfer tax, which in some cases may not give an accurate calculation of the actual sales price (maybe this time). Or the data was pulled from the another property and attached to this one, the old garbage in garbage out.

If you are the owner of the property you can modify the Trulia info by claiming the home.

6065 Buggy Whip Lane sold on 1/15/13 for $297,500. It sold in 1998 for $198,000.
I have found that Trulia does not update thier information on a frequent basis. My best advice is to work with a realtor that has access to the most current accurate data.

I am happy to help you look in the area for similar homes.

This is likely just an error on Trulia's part. MLS and the tax records reflect the correct sales price. Are you planning to buy or sell a home in the area?
