How can I find out whether this was a real sale or just reverted to a lender? The public records lag behind.

Dear M. Kalfus:

This house has not been "sold" in the traditional sense (offered to the public) nor is it currently offered for sale.

Streamline Document Svcs Inc took over ownership of that property on 12/18/08 for $59,609. The property last sold on 09/30/2005 for $372,000. It looks like the 2nd TD steped up to the plate and purchased the home to protect their interest. The first is still owing. If you need me to do some more research, just send me an email.

It can be difficult to tell sometimes what happened. A large majority of homes that have sold recently are in the multiple listing service (MLS), and this is often a good place to look that is updated before the public records.

If you have questions on a particular home, please let me know, and I'd be happy to help. You may contact me at
