my house is listed as being sold 04/2009, it wasn't. What's going on?

I live at 11 Merrill Ave in Amesbury, Ma and it is quoted as being worth $665,000.00, and it is wrong information, what can I do to remedy this situation?

Where is it listed as being sold?  On Trulia? On Zillow?  On another website?  Or on the County Assessor's website.

These websites assign value based on properties in the area that may or may not be true comps.  If the house next door is 1,000 sq ft bigger or smaller, in much better or much worse condition, it still counts it as a comp.  This is my biggest problem when assuming these sites give you true value for a property -- they don't.

When a buyer is interested in your property, they're going to use data supplied by a real estate professional which will show what is listed, under contract and recently sold to determine value.  If you're hoping to refi or borrow against your property, the bank will hire a professional appraiser who will use accurate info to determine value.  So don't get hung up on what one of these sites say your house is worth.

As far as it recently sold, mistakes are made all the time.  Again, I wouldn't lose any sleep over it, but you can probably as the owner go in and enter info about your house on these websites which may help provide more accurate info.
