I checked the MLS and couldn't find an active listing in the 100 to 300 block of 70th Ave or in the 7000 block of 2nd Street. Do you have more information? I did find a condo listed for $22,000 http://www.trulia.com/property/3039174310-1051-79th-Ave-N-20… See if this helps.

I'd be glad to check the properties out with a specific address or MLS #. Usually they will start with a U75 or T24. As for something saying $100.00 that is usually a holder price or beginning bid for an auction. It can be confusing and misleading. One thing to keep in mind with auctions is that the Buyer pays a premium on the final agreed upon sale price, usually 10% and then the contract is written for the total amount. This is how the auctions get paid.

Are you currently looking for a home or just browsing on line for now? I have a free service called “Listingbook”, which I provide for my clients. It is like a back door into the MLS, which updates daily: new listings, price changes, solds & withdrawn listings, allowing you to really be able to follow and learn the market. I set up a basic search according to your guidelines. Once you are in, you can change the parameters as you need. If this is something you would be interested in let me know & I would be glad to set up your free Listingbook Account.

When you visit the Tampa Bay area, I also have a free automated service called CITY (Curbside Info to You) available 24/7. I issue you a number you can call in on ANY Real Estate For Sale sign and it reads the MLS information to you from the street address for all ACTIVE MLS listings. If this would be helpful let me know. I just need your cell phone and an email to register it. If you want to put it on multiple phones, I can put up to three numbers on one user. Just send the numbers you want added. I will email you the number you call in on to get the information. Put it in your favorites for quick access when you are driving around. I use it all the time.

I feel an informed client makes the best decisions regarding their real estate needs. Let me know if I can be of assistance.

Your best bet is to work with a Realtor, preferably one who has listing book, where you can do your own searches. The information is pulled directly from the Multiple Listing Service, so you would get the same info.

If I can help you in any way, feel free to call or email.

Good Luck!
