At ListWizer, our realtors are often asked, “How much did that house sell for?” It is not unusual to wonder what a nearby home’s selling price was or how much the houses in a neighborhood you are searching went for. While it is much easier to peruse realty websites or apps to see a selling price for a home on the market, seeing the selling price after the property has closed is a little more challenging.
Here, we talk about the tools and resources available to you to get the most accurate information on the sales history of a house.
What are the Best Ways to Find Out How Much a House Sold For Near Me?
If you are in the housing market or are searching for a real estate agent who can help you find a home, they can provide the most reliable way to find out how much a home in your area — or in an area where you are looking — sold for.
A licensed real estate agent can look up the house on the multiple listing service (MLS) and provide all the financial details of the transaction so you can make informed decisions about buying the home or one in the area.
Another way to find out how much a house is sold is the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) method.
This may include:
- Checking online realtor websites/apps like Zillow, Trulia, or Redfin. These sources may give you an estimated or asking price but may not provide the accurate and final selling price.
- Checking with your County Recorder’s Office or website. However, this information is not available in non-disclosure states.
If you are searching for this information because you are considering selling or buying a home and would like to make an informed decision about its listing price or make an offer, we can match you with an experienced realtor in your area who will provide you with a free Comparative Market Analysis that will allow you to move forward with confidence.
What is a Comparative Market Analysis?
A comparative market analysis (CMA) estimates a home’s price based on recently sold, similar properties in the immediate area. Real estate agents and brokers create CMA reports to help sellers set home listing prices and help buyers make competitive offers.
Here at ListWizer, we can connect you with a top-rated, local agent for a free consultation — including professionally prepared CMA at zero charge — with no obligation to sign with any agent.
