Hi Scott,
More often then not foreclosed properties for sale will have limited photos.
I would suggest to ask a local Realtor to go to this property and take photos.
I even take video for my buyers/investors who request more pics.

Good Luck

Trulia gets data from a variety of sources, including a couple of companies that track properties that are in foreclosure but not actually for sale yet. Are you looking at an actual listing or one that says foreclosure? ... more

Most likely because Trulia is not in the business of presenting everything accurately, they are in the business of presenting everything and letting others figure it out.

HOA fees are $ 1240.00 per quarter. Taxes are based on what you paid for the property. Take 85% of the sale price times .0153 (millage rate). If homesteaded take $ 50,000 off the 85% figure and then multiply millage rate. ... more

Hi, Joe -

It depends on what you're asking.

'Market Value' is defined as 'the value an arms-length buyer will pay for a home on the open market.' 'Just Market Value' (which is the term used in county tax purposes) is defined as 'some number the county thinks your home is worth, and that is hopefully in the general ballpark'.

Many buyers make the mistake of looking at the tax value and trying to divine some kind of price conclusion from it. In Florida, tax appraisers very rarely drive past the homes they're appraising, much less visit the interiors; there is no real basis in fact for tax values.

The only reliable way to determine a property's value is to look at the comps, make adjustments for features based on recent sales, and figure out what a home is worth to you.
