This is one of the most frustrating things that I have found. I find what seem to be good deals all the time, just being in my own neighborhood and being very aware of things like FSBO signs, overgrown lawns and what seem to be abandoned properties etc.
I go home, I go to the various RE sites, and I type in the property, only to be told there are no matching results?
I just saw the prop. live and in person 5 minutes ago and now I am looking at an aerial view of a 'patch of green nothing'!
There is one fantastic property that I really wanted more information on, it was not on Zillow (empty plot) - I did find it on another site, it is beautiful and listed at two thirds of the original listing price . I actually found it on another RE site, with an entirely different photo though!
So, to set the record straight, I went to my local court house, the property is not in their computer, they pulled out the "big maps' and yet again it looks like an empty plot.
Can anyone explain these 'ghost houses' to me?
