Ever wonder when you drive around your neighborhood and see a “For Sale” sign on a neighbor’s lawn how much it eventually sold for? Of course you might find it an impolite question to ask. Wonder no more. With more advanced technology in place, you can now find out what your neighbor’s house sold for in seconds.
You could try to track it down with one of the real estate aggregator sites like Zillow or Trulia (now owned by the same company). However, in most cases the information is either unavailable or incorrect. That’s because the data these websites use does not come directly through the Multiple Listing Service. Instead, they use a variety of other resources, plus algorithms they invented to try and get a close approximation. But only a Realtor who is a member of their local MLS can tell you for sure.
There’s nothing worse than hearing the wrong price about your neighbor’s sale price when you are making financial decisions. If it’s inflated you will feel falsely richer and if its lower you will feel unnecessarily distressed. So next time just use the form and we can get you an answer in seconds.
