Texas is a Non-Disclosure state. The official deed shows that for "Ten Dollars and other consideration" you purchased the property at 123 Main Street. The other consideration is $150,000 other dollars but no one records that in the Deed. Now, the Note the creates the lien against the property does show the amount of the lien and sometimes you can play the percentages and guess what the sales price was. But it's only a guess.
Here are some samples that my client sent me recently. You'll notice they have the correct name of the lender but little else is accurate. And they show in the little highlighted box that they are not from the lender at all. I've tried to remove any personal information. You'll see that it appears to be from the Lender or the Title Company.
If you ever have questions, the best bet is to contact your real estate professional directly to find out what is real and what is fake.
