Why are the single family homes in Twin Creeks San Ramon listed as town homes? Who's the brilliant individual at Trulia who flubbed this?
They very well may be slated as townhomes or Planned Urban Developments (PUD) on the legal description.

Do we still need our buying agent after escrow is closed, for anything related to the house we have bought via him?
Sorry to hear about your bad experience with your realtor. To precisely answer your question, you do not have to use him again since escrow is already closed.

why are townhome stats not tracked separately? how do I infer price ratio between a townhome and a SFH?
It cannot. You need to breakdown components that matters you most and identify a price that can get you what you are approved for and what your comfortable paying.
