We are experiencing some areas where the opportunity to buy a home, fix it up, and sell for profit still exists. I've had a couple buyers in recent months buy homes that appeared to be "flips". What matched my buyers need was that they were looking for a move in ready home that was not a short sale. The bank owned bids we placed had multiple offers and we lucked upon a couple where we were able to deal direct with the seller and get the home at a price they wanted to pay.
Another agent in my office had a home sold in 11 hours after putting it on the market after it was bought, remodeled, and then resold. These home still appraised even in a much more strict/controlled appraisal environment. I don't find it to be the norm, rather the exception
Buyers still would like nice homes at reasonable prices.
We are here to help as needed.
It appears that the listing agent has failed to remove this listing from the Trulia.
It is no longer available on the Multiple Listing System. (See sales history below.)

Regarding your question about the increase in a property asking sales price: This may not necessarily be 'flipping' in the case of bank owned properties. Once a bank purchases a home at foreclosure, any current listings are cancelled. The bank will ask a Realtor to re-list the property based upon the latest comparables for the neighborhood. In some instances, this new listing price may be higher than the pre-foreclosure offering price.

I don's see where it is currently listed. You are probably looking at outdated information unless there is a FOR SALE BY OWNER sign in the yard.
I hope this helps.
