Mj - Looks like your from the Coraopolis area which is Allegheny county. Check the Allegheny County Assessment Website for the sales price and date for a given property. The site takes a month or so to update after a sale. The URL is www2.county.allegheny.pa.us . If the site is not updated with the information you need feel free to contact me directly with the property address and I can help.

The closest to what you're looking for is, as Kamal suggests, the web site for the county or city the property is in. Most will have property records online. One limitation is that the prices shown don't reflect seller subsidies. For example, let's say Joe Smith bought a house for $400,000. However, he asked for, and received, a $12,000 "seller subsidy" for closing costs or other purposes. The sales price will show as $400,000, not the real net of $388,000.

To drill down to that level, you need a Realtor for access to MLS data, which will show seller subsidies. But, obviously, you can come fairly close on your own.

Hope that helps.

You can also check out Zillow.com, they will show you how much it sold for, plus provide a map with other properties for sale and etc. Zillow.com

Property information is public record, and each county has a website with all the property information. Google "property records in xyz county" and you should get results including the county's tax assesor or something similar that would provide you with the information you need

Yes, if you know the address you can go on the Allegheny County web site and it will give you alot of information about the house. Don't let the assessed value influence you, alot of them are wrong. But you can scroll thru 2 or 3 pages & it will show you the sold dates, how much it sold for and to whom it sold.
