My issue with RealtyTrac is that these postings are very confusing as consumers think that they can buy a home for the value of the lis pendens filing amount. RealtyTrac posts these confusing notices to lure you into signing up for their fee-based service.
Here is a free resource that is updated daily with Fort Myers foreclosure listings: http://www.greaterftmyers.com/fort-myers-foreclosures.php
Good luck with your search!
Trulia, as great as it is, does not have accurate information regarding active property either. Information is manually uploaded so it depends on the agent to keep everything up to date. Listingbook is a really neat tool that pulls directly from the MLS so you'll be able to see which properties are available and those that have sold or gone pending. Tax/community info is also available on Listingbook. Check it out for free - http://www.sharphomes.listingbook.com
Best of luck,

Thanks for a good question.

There should be some rules in place to eliminate this kind of blatant misinformation.
