Sorry, I just saw your question or I would have answered it sooner. It looks like the last time that property address was listed and sold was in January of 2013. That address isn't actually associated with that MLS number but that MLS number sold in 2005. Sometimes the homes that show up on Trulia and Zillow don't get updated as the agent is really responsible for making the changes to status. If they don't do it, it doesn't get reported. If you are interested in a more reliable way of searching homes let me know and I can get that to you. Getting accurate information is invaluable in todays market. The good homes go fast and it helps to have the information on listings as soon as they become available.

First off I have to mention that Trulia and Zillow ARE NOT usable measures of the value of a property because they use out of date information to value a home. It's fun to play with, but not a substitute for a professional appraisal or even a Comparative Market Analysis or Broker Price Opinion performed by an experienced professional Realtor.

Secondly, by statute "the data-gathering period used to estimate the value of property for 2013 value shall be the 24-month period running from July 2010 through June 30, 2012. Only properties having sold within this 24-month time frame may be used as comparables when estimating a market value!" So this value does not represent the CURRENT market value, but the approximate value during the statutory time period.

You can find further information on the dispute process at the El Paso County Assessors Website:

I hope you find this information of use

Hi Vickie, Shane and Boulder SuZ have it right and have provided some good links for you to check out. Just wanted to say that the USDA loans won't work unless you are looking quite far east of town or up in the Woodland Park area. Please feel free to contact me if you'd like assistance devising a "home buying plan" so you can know the exact steps necessary to get started. ... more
