It's possible that some sort of "paper transaction" took place in 2000, and was recorded in the public record. This could have the appearance of a "true" sale, even though it really is not an "arms-length" transaction (between strangers), and no money actually changes hands.

For example, some transactions of this type entered in the public record are:

- A property becomes the responsibility of a personal representative handling an estate.
- A property is being put in a trust for tax, or other, reasons.
- The owner wants to add another person or persons to a deed, such as a spouse or children.
- A life estate is created, where the nature of the ownership changes.
- A quit claim deed is created, where someone gives up their stake in a property. (Could involve money.)
- Additional financing, such as a Home Equity Line of Credit, or new financing is obtained.

I hope that helps.

If by any chance you're planning on selling, I may have a buyer for you. They specifically want Homestead with no HOA.

From what i see in the tax rolls you are correct it was purchased 01/17/2012 for $24,000
from a trust, which im assuming was your mothers estate. Are you interested in selling or refinancing the property? If you are i can help you with that.
