Hello. I don’t know where you are located, but there are several reasons in my area that I know of (and probably lots more I don’t know) why the sale price would be recorded as 0:
Transfers from individuals to their own trusts will show no price
Transfers of deeds after death and sometimes divorce
Quit Claim deeds often show no price or $1.00
In my area, certain documents recorded before information was computerized shows up with default numbers and dates
I’m sure there are others who can say alot more about this. This has been my experience so far.
