Now that you have provided a hint, I have located the EXACT property you asked about. What is even better, I have every piece of information available on it.
It was listed by 2 different agents for 1 year and they couldn't sell it. unfortunately for the sellers (but lucky for you) the home went to foreclosure
It's a rather cute house with more than an Acre of property I Can email you a dozen pictures (inside and out) if you would like.
The property IS STILL AVAILABLE. And handled the correct way, Can be bought well under market value.
Here's where you find out that you don't need a good or great Realtor. You need a Realtor Who KNOWS how to get the information and get the deal done.
Even though you already have chosen the best answer, I will still post What I have discovered for you. If it seems I am boasting my services, I guess you'd be right. It pains me to know end when consumers ask for advice and the responses, Although well hearted in nature, are just wrong or inaccurate.
This is a New Era in Real Estate and even Realtors & Brokers are lost in it. This is Not the time to "Just pick a Realtor" , Unless you like frustration and want to over pay for a property.
A WARNING which will save you a ton of Time, Money, Energy and Frustration: RealtyTrac and ALL the those other sites are a total waste of your time & money(as you just learned) . They are there for one reason and one reason only. To Tease you with info (many times inaccurate) and then bribe you for your credit card to get more info (again inaccurate) . Then they take YOUR INFO and Sell it to a desperate and inexperienced Real Estate Agent.
Hope this sheds just a little light on your question.
And Oh Yeah, Both the numbers you saw , $1655 and $290,000 are correct for what is in the Records but those numbers mean absolutley nothing.
I can explain in great detail if you would like.
