How can I rely on properties listed in Zillow.com, are truly available?

The properties below are still listed in Zillow.com,  but when I checked with the Realtors, they said that the properties are no longer in the market.  How can I rely on the Zillow's listing that the properties listed are truly available?  How often do you update the listings?
1) 2239 Double Tree Ave., Henderson NV (MacDonald Ranch) MLS# 1196682

2) 1065 Castiron Ridge Ct, Henderson, NV 89052   

3)  1025 Astounding Hills Dr, Henderson, NV 89052

You really can't as the data is updated very slowly.  The safest way is a MLS direct link like my website.  Feel free to search here at [www.deletedbymoderator.com] you will also find valuable market information under the market insider tab as well.  Feel free to contact me direct with any additional questions you may have.

Contact a licensed Realtor.  Ask them to search the MLS.  This is really the only way of knowing.  I get plenty of calls about homes that were for sale years ago or that were in foreclosure.  The agent will point you in the right direction.

You need to talk with a Realtor. We have the updated information. A Realtor will be able to send you homes that match your search criteria as soon as they become available. Homes are selling extremely fast due to the low prices, rates and inventory

You can't...there are too many databases feeding into one..or vice versa..keep it local to get real information..use a local Realtor to get real answers.

For an accurate list of homes matching your search criteria I would HIGHLY recommend contacting a local agent and having them send you a list of homes that match what you are looking for. Don't waste your time searching through ads that may or may not be available. Furthermore, a good agent can screen out the deals that will not work for you such as HOA litigation, sellers looking for cash only offers, if you are investor certain HOA's may have a cap that you will be unable to rent out etc. My 2 cents.

for the most accurate and up to date info check with your local realtor...as a member of glvar we have access to the most up to date and accurate information...when a property goes into c (under contract status) it must be reflected so we don't waste our or our clients valuable time when they are looking to buy a home...however on other sites this information may not be required to be updated in a timely manner.

Some agents intentionally do not update their listings so that other prospective customers will call them.  In order for Zillows.com to be a credible website, you need to have access to MLS listings and be current on the status of the properties.  Otherwise, your website is not reliable.

All listing information on Zillow is under control of the listing agent, and the agent is responsible for updating the status as ZIllow doesn't syndicate directly with the MLS in your area.   It can be very frustrating.  Some agents are excellent at staying on top of this, and some less so.
