Mark, Both Buyer and Seller in Barrington, IL

Anyone following Trulia.com's "description" for sold homes should be aware--it is posting false information!

Asked by Mark, Barrington, IL Tue Mar 24, 2009

Note: under "description for sold homes": the average list price for similar homes for sale is $-----; the figure given for comparable homes sold is false. EX: "the ranch" on rt22 and rt59 with over 4.5acre sold for $280, Trulia is claiming similar homes in the area sold for $239----yeah right! It is one-of-a-kind, no other property even remotely compares to that selected property. Look at all the other sales: for the average price for "similar homes" sold, all are priced well below the selected property. What is Trulia trying to pull again!?
I remember when the housing crisis began to escalate; Trulia deleted all past sale price history on all properties recorded.
What was Trulia.com's intent to do that?

Mark-Thank you - Your comment is directed at system generated Home values. These are only as good as the data in the system, they cannot take into consideration any of the possibly much more important factors involved in Real Estate. We need Realtors and assessors for this.
