Most of the third party websites such a Trulia use whatever pictures are available. Although 1025 California was transferred in 2013, it does not appear to have been listed on the MLS. Sometimes pictures are used which were taken for Google Maps but that doesn't appear to be the case here. There are traces that the property had been listed for rent. The pictures may have been taken then.

Without an agent to update the sales record I don't know how you could get the pictures changed.

Although an older mobile home may have been paying vehicle "in-lieu" license fees, it appears the change in assessment is simply related to the home not having been sold for many years and the increase in assessment having been limited by the 1% proposition 13 limit. When a home is sold, it becomes appraised at the new sale price.

Trulia got their from county records. In order to change it you would need to go to the county. The problem with that is that if it was originally a 4 bedroom 1 bath home that was converted to a 3/2 without a permit you could be asked to turn it back by the city, or you may need to get upgrades to get a permit.

Is there a specific reason you want the info changed on Trulia?

That property is not for sale at this time. The information you found on Trulia just says that the property might become foreclosed.

If you want to look for foreclosed or short sale properties in Mountain View take a look at:
http://www.silicon-valley-homes-for-sale.com/listings/areas/27854,27855,27856/propertytype/SINGLE,CONDO,MULTI,LAND,INCOME/listingtype/Foreclosure+Bank+Owned,Short+Sale/

Keep in mind that the listed price may not be very close to an acceptable purchase price.

Realty Trac isn't posting a home for sale. They are posting information which might be useful to find a home which might be for sale in the future. When the home is put up for sale it is unlikely the price will be the loan amount which Realty Trac has posted.

Realty Trac is hoping you will find their information interesting enough that you will buy information from them.

To purchase a property, you need to structure your money and loan firstly. There are a lots of way of doing that, it mainly depends how much down payment you have, and how much your annual salary to support the loan amount. If you have $100,000 for downpayment, you can make it 20% down with a $500,000 priced property. This means you are making a $400,000 loan, IF your income can be qualified. When the rate is 3.25%, this makes your monthly payment is $1,741. This is a rough calculations for your ideas.

There are still lots of strategies on loans and purchase contracts, you will certainly need an full-time experienced to help you for sure.

What you have seen on Trulia is a notice of default or foreclosure posted by Realty Trac which is a reporting service. Realty Trac takes information from public records and provides it by subscription to its members who have registered and agreed to pay a fee for the information. What you see on Trulia is an abbreviated report from Realty Trac in order to entice you to sign up for their service.

It is unlikely that you will be able to buy this house for the price posted on Trulia. That is the amount of a default and has no relationship to the value of the property. The house may be offered for sale at a later date but it will most likely be listed with a Realtor and priced at a price that reflects the market price for the area.

If you are serious about buying a house, you need to align yourself with a full-time, experienced local Realtor who can help you to find the house that meets your needs. Your Realtor can help you to learn about the current market conditions, realistic house prices, loan qualifications, negotiating strategy, escrow management, inspections and everything else that goes into the purchase of a home.

The Medford Team answered:
Guess what … if the listing has the logo for RealtyTrac ...

Then what you are seeing is NOT an actual listing … it is an advertisement for RealtyTrac.

RealtyTrac is a provider of data for distressed homes. This data is used by investors and Realtors to track distressed homes. When you see the RealtyTrac logo, you are not looking at a home that is actually available for you to buy: what you are seeing at is either (1) the notice of default for one of the mortgages on the property in question, (2) a notice of an impending trustee sale or (3) a notice of a completed trustee sale.

RealtyTrac notices can be very deceptive because they usually give loan amounts, not the purchase price or fair market value. When and if this particular property hits the market, it will be at market price for the neighborhood.

Bottom line: RealtyTrac is trying to get you to sign up for their service.

I would recommend you call Sahara Village (650) 968-7891 tell them you are interested in buying #202 which is advertised for sale and that you would like to know about the terms and fees for the space and perhaps ask if they have other spaces available.
