Realty Trac strikes again:
Look at the posting for that home again and find the logo for Realty Trac (black and red). Most times when you see that logo on any listing it means the price you see is NOT a sale price, and the home is probably not for sale as of yet. It is just a posting of what the Bank/Lender had to pay the courts to document regaining custody of the home when they foreclosed on it (transfer value); and/or an announcement that the foreclosure process has just begun (Lis Pendens). Next that Bank/Lender will take several months to put the property on the market at "Market Value for the specific community" and it will be listed/advertised as a Foreclosure or an REO.

It is 'too good to be true!"
As Bonnie indicated, searching for homes that are REALLY for sale on aggregate websites like Zillow and Trullia will result in chasing the illusion of homes for sale and the vapors of homes sold long ago.
A recent study revealed 30% of homes shown for sale on these site are 'unavailable."
If you are a serious home buyer, you need to graduate to serious tools. The data resource with the most reliable, timely, accurate, comprehensive, relevant and accountable data is the local Mujltiple Listing Service. If you would like access to the Mid-Florida Regional MLS (Tampa Bay including Pinellas County) just drop me a note with your search preferences and I get you enrolled. Your next best choice will be Realtor.com or Remax.com
Best of success,
