    Found a good comp in RMLS, sold 9/1/2009-$1,200,000. Checked the quick county records and found no such sale, but did find a land sale 2/08 for $485,000. Called the agent do clarify what took place in Sept and found that was when they replaced the take out loan with premanant financing so he thought it would make a good comp so it put it in as a sale at $1,200,00. !!!!m2:m2:

    You know the skippies are not going to confirm that info, just use it.

    Report it to your mls. The GLVAR in Las Vegas likes to collect fines for things like this.

    My favorite one here: two lakefront properties. #1 listed for $1,400,000, #2 listed for $1,100,000. Same listing agent - both on the market about 2 weeks. Reported in MLS as sold on the same day for $700,000 each.

    I pulled the deeds. It was an exchange, and so the agent just made up a sales price. I immediately called the agent, she wouldn't take my call. Called the broker and explained that lazy appraisers were going to use those two waterfront sales at $700,000, when they were each worth more. Nothing happened. Called again two weeks later - told the broker that next time he had a waterfront listing, it was going to get crushed by those two "comps". The next day, the mls data stated that these properties were an exchange.

    Still, I bet stupid appraisers are using them.

    Bulk land sale in one deed that's recorded for every legal description is a common misinterpretation in the public records.

    Answer: Record the HUD-1's.

    Never ceases to amaze me - I confirm all sales and most Realtors react with "no one else ever calls." Gotta love it.

    11 $100 cats? Cat equivalency??? :rof::rof:
