Do you mean the purchase price? Next question -- why do you need to change it? Did you purchase it recently? What's important is what shows in public records and on your settlement statement. These so called real estate websites are really just marketing sites and a way for them to make money on us Realtors and lenders. They pull listings from various sources, such as local MLSs, public records, etc. The listing you see is probably an old record. Then they charge us money to advertise our own listings, or to get the leads from them! I wouldn't put too much stock in the data you see here. Trulia is notorious for having old, outdated info.

Good luck to you!

Taxes are based on the assessed value. The assessed value is based on numerous factors. You can challenge the assessed value at the Assessor's office. On my tax appeals in Will County, the Board of Review will rely heavily on a recent appraisal.

There are certain instances when a seller will entertain offers from investors only after a certain waiting period (such as fannie mae houses). Generally, when the house goes on the market, seller's want offers!

Hopefully you are working with a qualified buyer's agent to help you through the process of purchasing real estate. It is important to have a professional on your side. If you haven't found someone yet, interview a few agents you find through referrals or from this website. Talk over coffee (there is a great coffee shop right downtown Crete!), find out how long the agent has been in the business, what is their background, are they full time, do they know your area of interest, etc. Treat finding an agent like hiring someone to help you with one of the most important purchases in your life (except your are not paying the agent since realtor commissions are typically paid by sellers).

I am located in Crete and would welcome the opportunity to buy you a cup of coffee and learn more about your real estate goals. Check out my website if you want to search the mls -

Extensive statistics including sales volume, number of homes sold, average days on market and months' supply of inventory is available through the Multiple Listing Service, using software called AgentMetrics. I have access to all of that information and will be happy to send a report for Crete (which is broken down monthly for the past two years). The report will come in a .pdf file and includes charts for easy interpretation. Just send me an e-mail at and I'll get it to you within 24 hours. ... more
