Hi Gary,

I'm not sure what information other agents are looking at but as far as I can see this home last closed in 2010 for $4,000,000..the MLS listing is 4255298. It does not show any additional sales activity.

Are you particularly interested in lender owned luxury homes or short sales? If so, you may want to take a look at my website...www.arizonaluxurybankhomes.com.

This website provides a weath of information about buying both luxury lender owned and short sale properties and offers the ability to search by price or a via map feature.

Please feel free to have a look at my website and contact me any time with general questions or if you find a property you would like to see.

Thank you Gary and have a wonderful day!

Julianne, please, Please, PLEASE secure the services of your own Buyer's Agent to assist and represent you in the searching and buying of your next home. Do NOT subject yourself to the risks and perils of dealing with the listing/seller's broker. Your representation and protection is at risk.

All the best!

I agree with Jim,
Why would you want the Listing agent to contact you. Get you own Buyer's agent.
Jay is local, email him. Your best bet is to get un-conflicted information. In a Dual Agency unfortunately, every list agent has a conflict of interest. Most of us can deal with this conflict well but for your sake why even go there.
Best of Luck,
Brad

Hi Judy. I like Trulia as much as the next person, but they don't do a good enough job of updating the listings and differentiating from rental properties and/or properties for sale.
*This property is a rental home.

You won't find anything in Paradise Valley for this price. It is a very affluent section of the Valley with properties ranging into the millions. Rentals in PV will go into the thousands of dollars per month.

If you're searching for a nice home in a nice area of the Valley, send me your search criteria (price, minimum sq/ft, minimum # of bedrooms/bathrooms, pool yes or no, large lot, single-story or two-story, maximum age of home, and anything else you feel is important) and I'll gladly set you up on a custom search.

I see you live in Mesquite, Texas. Are you looking for a second home or a retirement home, or are you relocating to the Valley to make it your permanent residence?

It is truly a 'buyer's market' right now and there are more good deals coming up in the next few months. I deal with a lot of banks and foreclosure properties, and according to my sources we're supposed to have more hit the market in September.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,

Bradley,

Home in PV are much higher that is a rental! If you would like some guidance on a purchase feel free to contact me!

Trulia can be informative however is not the best search engine for finding homes for sale!

Currently Trulia does not accept rental listings; therefore, the confusion. Also, they pull the information randomly so, as mentioned below, are not consistently accurate.

Hi Joy!

It's honestly not Trulia's fault. Rental properties are sometimes entered by the listing agents in hopes of picking up a tenant. They are against Trulia policy, and there are a number of us on here that Flag them. There were 3 that were removed from this site just last week, and I just flagged the above property, too.

If you're not already working with a Buyer's Broker, I would highly recommend that you develop a working relationship with a good Realtor. S/he can put together a comprehensive, customized search for you that includes all of the currently available listings that meet or exceed your desired features and parameters. That's the only way you will ever get accurate, up-to-date property listings AND have the advantage of an agent that is representing your interests as a buyer.

Have a terrific weekend, and let me know if we can assist you in any way!

Hi Marielle,

This property was listed on Realty Trac.com but, once again, RealtyTrac.com is wrong.

Firstly, the listed price is not $195K, but rather $140K, and the size is not 1082SF, but rather 955SF. Here’s what’s going on. A notice of forclosure was posted in the free, public online public database found at Maricopa.gov. This notice of foreclosure is the bank’s first step in starting the foreclosure process. The amount owed that is being foreclosed on is $195,000, but when RealtyTrac searches through free, public online databases for information, they almost always interpret the information incorrectly. So, don’t trust that website for complete and accurate information.

This property is listed for sale in the Phoenix MLS for $140K, but it’s a short sale. Less than 10% of short sales ever ending getting sold, mainly because the seller needs to convince their lender to take a loss on the sale, and that’s a very difficult, almost impossible task, which is why about 90% of short sale properties never sell & eventually end up going back to the bank.

You will benefit greatly by having a Buyer’s Agent REALTOR® assisting you. Otherwise, you will continue to look at properties that cannot be purchased. With ~54,000 properties for sale in the Phoenix area, you’ll need to know which ones are perfect for you & which ones can actually be purchased.
