How can you find a property's historical buy-sell information?
Great sources for historical property information include the land titles office and the city property tax administration office in the related area. But of course, these methods take considerable time and effort, and the information you find can be difficult to understand. Here’s where working with an experienced REALTOR® pays off.
A knowledgeable professional can locate several years worth of historical property information by searching through MLS database systems – viewable only by licensed REALTORS. Not only do they know where to go to acquire the information you need, but they have the industry experience to determine what’s relevant to the property you’re interested in.
Of course it’s still a great idea to do as much of your own homework as possible, but make sure you provide your findings to your REALTOR for additional details and insight that you may have overlooked.
