The amount my home sold for is $525K not $252K. Please change it. You are bringing prices down in whole neighborhood because of this error. I have written before and held on hold for over an hour trying to fix this. (No one ever picked up though I was from 10 in line to first for 15 min. guess the other 14 hung up, too.)
