Dear Reddog, The county recording office does not immediately change the ownership name on the public records once a property sells. It often takes months for the new owner's name, how the property conveyed, whether arms length (regular sale) or some other type of sale, Deed in Lieu or deficiency like foreclosure appears in the public records. Also the amount of the ownership transfer will show at the time it is actually recorded by the county. Please don't hesitate to call me directly with any questions you might have at 1-800-283-7393 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

You are correct that this is no longer an active listing. It closed in April of 2011. Unfortunately, Trulia does not update their listings with the MLS often enough, so if the listing was picked up from another source, such as Point2 or Postlets, it doesn't get updated when it is sold.
Sometimes the listing agent is unaware that it is even on Trulia, so unless they are aware and go in and manually remove it or mark it sold, it stays there long after it has been closed.
If you're interested in a current website to search for properties, please let me know and I'll be happy to set up a free account for you.... more
