Many websites, including broker websites, feed directly to Trulia and that's how Trulia obtains the information it supplies. Perhaps your home is still showing active on one of these other sites and that is why Trulia is still posting the house as for sale. Click on the view details of the listing and see where that takes you. If it takes you to the original listing agent's site, contact them to ask if they are still feeding Trulia this live data and you can also click on the tab to report an error to Trulia about the listing and you can tell them that it has been sold but most likely the direct feed they are receiving will need to be updated as well.
I researched the property you inquired about, and it is not listed in the MLS (Multiple Listing Service). It's also not showing up in the records for the Middlesex County Sheriff Sale log either.
Apparently, this property is currently in "lis pendens" status (which means pre-foreclosure).
A lis pendens is the formal notice filed by a mortgage lender that starts the foreclosure process. Even though this is considered a "pending lawsuit" the current homeowner still technically has possession and the right to sell or refinance the property.
In states like New Jersey that require official foreclosure actions through the judicial system, lenders usually file a lis pendens to foreclose on a mortgage or deed-of-trust loan that is in delinquent and in default.
Essentially, a lis pendens is issued to signal the beginning of the foreclosure process.
A property is considered to be in pre-foreclosure status from the day a lis pendens motion is filed all the way up until the day the property is sold at the sheriff's foreclosure auction. There is usually anywhere from 90 days from the first notice of a default judgement, to as long as 12 months.
It's unfortunate when people are faced with situations where they may potentially lose their home. These sorts of situations present unique opportunities for investors or buyers like yourself.
