The only way to access this data is through a Realtor. A local Orem Realtor will also be able to give you his/her best advice based on seeing and selling many homes in Orem. Accurately pricing a home is a matter of facts, figures, and gut feelings. A buyer will not pay more for a house than he/she can purchase a similar home for.
As a buyer, there is no cost to use an Orem Realtor and obtain all the experience and market knowledge of that person. You can visit a site like http://www.SoldByDenise.com and browse all Realtor listings with the most up-to-date prices and availability pulled directly from the Realtor MLS.
The prices for properties listed on Trulia should be the same prices that are listed with the local MLS. There shouldn't be any difference at all. If you (not your friends--you) find discrepancies, definitely bring them to Trulia's attention.
I have no idea what your friends are talking about and I don't think they know what they are talking about, either. If they are comparing list prices of homes shown on Trulia. com to final sales prices shown on other sites or to real estate valuation sits like Zillow they are making apples and oranges comparisons. Have them back up their statements by showing you the data that they are using.
If you want accurate data talk to a local real estate professional who can provide the facts.
If you are buying or selling a house you should give much greater value to the advice of professionals than to that of well-meaning friends.
The best way to evaluate pricing on homes is to involve a professional Realtor. He/She can pull comparables to give you a price breakdown of homes sold as well as homes listed. This will be the most accurate information.
