Default If you are looking for a home in The Villages.

And if it is a resale and you wonder how much it sold for in the past;

You can find the price on Sumterpa.com or Marion County Property Appraiser's site or Lake County Property Appraiser's site.

It is good to know.

But do NOT type in last part of address, such as Loop, Boulevard, Street, Avenue. It won't take you to the right place. So if you are looking for 298 Bradford Court. Leave off the "court" part.

I am waiting for the price collapse , because of the 1/3 expansion, the third GEN developers, and all the Finnegans run a muck, cut backs on the cheese.

Hire your own appraiser unless your buying new. There are realtors out there willing to take advantage of gullible old folks that come from the north where homes cost and sell for a lot more.

No age bias please.

Older buyers are far more savvy than younger ones. This isn't our first rodeo.

You can find the same info on Zillow, in fact it is better because it will show all the sales prices paid since home was built, plus tax history. Just type in full address for property and scroll down and click on price/tax history and you will see everything.

Realtors want to sell their listings as fast as possible, that's how they get paid. If a listing is way over market value its usually due to an over zealous owner and a weak agent that couldn't talk sense into them.

I use Zillow frequently. Don't know if Trulia, Redfin, Ziprealty or Realtor dot coms have all of the bells and whistles Zillow has.

Happens all too often. Listing goes stale. Price comes down...

I have found fewer errors on the County sites, vs. Zillow's site.

I agree. I have put just about as much into my home as I paid for it.

Zillow is not perfect, but I checked several properties I own or have owned and it was accurate.

The one thing I do not trust on Zillow is their "zestimate" on what a property is worth. They use a very simple algorithm that does not take into account upgrades in the home nor lot/view.
