Hello. Often times tax records to not accurately reflect the number of bedrooms, baths or rooms to a home. When listing a property and imputing the information on the MLS, most Realtors will use what is on tax records. This is done because unless there is an appraisal of the property were the home is measured, the Realtor or owner will not be able to accurately estimate the size of the home. If you advertise a home as 2000 square feet for example and it is in reality 1800, there could be legal action by a buyer of that property that they were mislead regarding the size of the home.

If the tax records for this property are not accurate there could be a variety of reasons for this:

1. Additions/modifications were made without permits. If any additions or modifications were made to the property without the proper permits, the changes made would not be reflected on the tax records.

2. Tax records have not been updated. If the work was completed recently and the owner of the property did use proper permits to make modifications/additions, then if could be that the tax records have not been accurately updated as of yet.

3. Tax records are incorrect. It does occasionally happen that the tax records for the property are not correct.

As already indicated this home is not currently actively listed. Are you looking for information regarding this home in particular or are you gathering data for another reason?

I hope this helps!
