You are stating that you are trying to buy a house. I hope you are using a Realtor and he/she should be the best person to provide you with sales comparable and help you present the best offer for you. But if you are trying to buy on your own, then PLEASE go to Zillow and other real estate internet venues for a on-the-fly market analysis and you will end up paying more for your property.
Again, all the information you are looking for is clearly available online and is very easy to do. Agent's are salesman and unfortunately doing this yourself cuts out the need for them and they live off commission. It would have been nice to have seen one that just tells you how to find this simple data instead of only advising you to get one to get a CMA

There are a lot of risks when you purchase as a 3rd party at an auction.
I used to work in that industry and I've seen/heard a lot of crazy things happening.
the best way to find the answer to that question is to work with an licensed real estate professional. They have the best tools to help you with all your questions in your real estate transaction and know the pitfalls of the real estate transactions.
Call me in case you have any questions.

Click on the local info button and you'll find general information. Switch to Zillow and they'll give you their estimate of the value of the property. When you want to get serious, talk to a real estate agent to pull the comparables on the property. There are still too many variables that you simply can't see online. You simply need to get them from the MLS.
Trulia and Zillow will give you some average data. On Trulia go down to the bottom of the page of the house you are interested in to the PRICE COMPARISON (graph of prices for last 10 years) table and the SALES TRENDS (average price). The problem with these sites is that they use county tax record information for comparables and that means square footage and maybe number of bedrooms. They don't know if a property is on a lake, backs to a 6 lane highway, or has an updated kitchen, full of mold, etc. These are all value adjustments that must be made that a computer cannot make.
Your realtor can prepare a Comparative Market Analysis for you to help you figure out the average selling price for homes in the neighborhood or area.
I would be happy to assist you with this. Are you already working with a realtor?
Please feel free to call, text, or email me anytime, day or night.
