What type of information is incorrect? These websites pull data from various sources such as old MLS listings, public records etc. If you've made improvements to the home (i.e finished a basement or added br/ba, etc.) that were NOT permitted, it's unlikely the public records will reflect the changes (for obvious reasons). If it was permitted, then you can bring this to the county's attention and have them correct it. Beware that this may result in higher taxes for you, my friend. ;)

When you go to list your home in the future, your agent will enter the correct info in the MLS.

Are you the seller? If you google the address, you can find all the sites that have it listed:

Sometimes if you just try to search for you home by entering the price, BR/BA etc. it won't come up. Which is why I tell all my clients to NEVER rely on these sites for accurate listings. Most buyers will find your home through their REALTOR (via the MLS).

Good luck!

Yes, definitely seems to be lots of fraudulent listings - Trulia - you should maybe charge for listings or do some other way of screening people posting rentals.

Is there some reason you're asking this? Do you not feel comfortabe with the knowledge of your realtor?
Is there some reason your realtor is making you feel this way?

It don't take too many years doing real estate to learn about the different areas of this town. (maybe you need to ask how long they've been a realtor) It's part of your job to learn about the areas. In an office, we talk to each other all the time about different areas of town. I know Colorado Springs seems large to some people, but it really isn't that large.
When you find the home you want to buy, ask the realtor to pull some comps for the area you wanting to buy in. That should help you feel like you're paying the right amount. Make sure the comps are sold homes with in the last 6 months and in the same subdivision if possible.
I've worked as a Buyer's Agent and a Seller's Agent. You get to know your client very well. You learn what they like and want. I love working as a Seller's Agent and helping my Seller find just the right home when they are ready to buy. It becomes a relationship for years. As a realtor you want that relationship to last years. You become a tool for the family. Someone they can trust.
Hope this helps,
Gilda Baxter GRI, SRES

Of course, you're angry now. And, you have every right to be. Unfortunately, there is ZERO rhyme or reason when it comes to banks and short sales. Your offer may have been the first, and may have been accepted by the Seller, subject to bank approval of short sale. What this means is that the bank can reject the offer at any time, whether or not they have another offer that is better.

The only way that you're going to get resolution now is to hire an attorney and have him/her start legal proceedings. Now, this will get expensive, so be prepared. And there's limited chances that you'll get a resolution that will be acceptable to you.

Probably the best thing for you to do is accept what the Seller's Agent is telling you, and stick to your guns. Then, when they tell you that your offer has been rejected, make sure that you tell the Seller's Agent that you are requiring, in writing, the rejection and cancellation of contract. Then you wait and see if you get your rejection notice.

More than likely, the whole thing is on the up and up, and you can move on to the next home. But, if the bank (or Seller, or Seller's Agent) is playing games, you may get the home in the long run. Very doubtful, but possible. I would just plan to start looking again and see if you can't find a better home. And make sure you're using a Buyer's Agent. Good luck.

An easy and FREE way to do this is to go directly to It won't cost you a dime and will search all the foreclosures in our area.

Also As Gilda Posted below,.. Realtor's with MLS access can specifically target these homes in the area's you want along with the amenities you are looking for.

Would love to help you get started or answer more questions for you...
