Visit a neighborhood several times to get a sense of belonging. Check out area statistics; real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods; so, you should check out demographics on your own to assure your comfort level can be reached. You could also check the census data.... ... more

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.

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 Beverly Howe, ABR, GRI, TRC, CIPS Broker/Owner Florida Buyer Broker ... more

As Don Trepper and the Naples Real Estate folks point out, "IT IS NOT THE REALTORS FAULT!'

Now, the way I see it, if you were able to purchase a ticket on the Titanic, and knowing everything you know, having watched the movie and all that,, and bought the ticket and ended up getting wet, whose fault would that be? Would you be shouting, "Why are they allowed to sell tickets when they know it will sink?" Inspite of all the disclaimers, warning and personal knowledge, some will buy the ticket.

Aggregate web sites such as Zillow and Trulia are notorious for faulty data. Real estate professionals provide access to the local MLS, (the only source of timely, accurate and reliable data) and it's FREE!

As you review consumer comments on Zillow and Trula...time and time again some poor sole writes..."hey MY HOME IS NOT FOR SALE! What are you doing?" Then that poor sole who has limited dollars and finally sees 'the' home at their price point only to discover it's a FAKE RealtyTract posting. Even my own listing on Trulia have had the data altered by on the Trulia website. Agents DON"T do this! YOU NEED TO PUT TRULIA IN THE CROSSHAIRS...but, as in most cases, the real estate is the only person in the mix that you know, so we are the only ones blamed or held accountable. Are you seeing the picture?

In the midst of all this wreckage, how some continue to not realize aggregate websites are not the source for actionable real estate data, but is perfectly fine for entertainment purposes. Using it other wise is like getting your news from the "Daily Show."

You now have and have always had choices. If you are ready to make a real estate decision, you need accurate, timely and reliable data. You need to get off the Titanic and onto a vessel that is able to delver the results you want. The choice is yours.

If you are looking for a new home in the Tampabay area you can search the source of the area most reliable data by signing up.

So Reddog, what will you do?
