I believe in Dallas and north texas you are not allowed to post SOLD data. This is why you don't see individual websites with the sold listings on it. With Trulia, they are pulling very inaccurate public record data into their database which is why you see a ton of homes in your search that say public record. Trulia also leaves it up to the agent to update their listings. If the agent doesn't do this it can stay as an active listing which will generate them more advertising and leads, but it's a pretty tricky bait and hook.

Hi Velzyiii,

Sometimes Tulia just dont have the latest info.

Are you looking for a home in the area and need a CMA report?

Please let me know if there is anything i can help you with.

The definitive source for sale information is your Realtor who has access to the data. Trulia doesn't have access to accurate sold data. They can pull the sale date out of public records, but if the warranty deed never got filed there would be nothing to pull. There are tons of reasons why Trulia can't report this kind of information accurately, but as Kenny said, probably best to ask Trulia.

Try emailing Trulia for that information.

Good luck.

There can be several reasons. The most likely is that Texas is a "non-disclosure" state so services such as Trulia don't have access to publicly recorded data on sold homes. Your best bet on looking at comparable sales is your real estate agent.
