I agree with the other agents here about working with a Realtor directly as they have direct access to the MLS.

The best thing to do is get yourself an agent to search for homes for you. This way you will be viewing homes that are REAL, and available.

Best of luck to you.

Fullerton, Brea are in my backyard. Email any questions you might have and we will get the information to you. Pricing on homes can be difficult to understand especially on a short sale.
If the price is too good to be true it generally is not real.

Hello YellowSand2964: As previous agents have shared with you "What is real as to prices" all depends on if your question pertains to one property or a type of property. For example, agents with under water listings which have a Trustee Sale date just around the corner will list the home price wise $20-$40-$70,000 under market value to generate enough buzz in order to obtain an offer to delay/postpone the Trustee sale. Another example are listings from Altisource who also list their homes under market value because the will provide a 7 day auction period for interested buyers to submit offers on. Now as to the two homes you have mentioned in your question and additional comments they both can be found in the MLS and both are listed at the stated price your link provides us. One problem I can see here is that you may still be thinking that deals can be found and that is not the case. In today's market place you are needing to be very aggressive with your offer and sellers are pushing the envelope with accepted prices which is why they target all cash offers with no loan/appraisal contingencies. As you can see there is a lot to think about and why any buyer looking to buy in today's market really needs professional guidance and not a part time agent or uninformed agent which there are way to many of.

Maybe they were talking about the "foreclosure" listings through RealtyTrac. Those ones are usually not even for sale and I get lots of people asking about them. Could see where somebody would call those "not real". Other than that, most Trulia listings are indeed factual.

This is an active listing at $389,000. Again, I'm not sure what is not real about that?

It is not that the prices are not real - it is that inventory is moving very fast and Trulia does not link directly to the MLS - so they are behind the curve. If you want accurate inventory - link up with an agent to get you set up on a MLS Gateway.

this is a HUD home and it is in pending status, meaning it is under contract. What is not real about this listing?
