Asked by Mike, Denver, CO Mon Jul 16, 2007

Is there any way to find a list of recently sold homes, without going to a Realtor or using the MLS

Absolutely, use the county's public records. Keep in mind these few items, public records will not take into account any seller concessions ($$ the seller did not receive after the sales price) such as buyers closing cost or personal property sold and it can take weeks for public records to update. Nor does public records data take into account condition or upgrades of a property and frequently what is on public records in regards to square footage or the finishing (such as a basement) of a home does not match what the home actually is. Although, public records is a good source, there is a reason realtors and appraisers use the MLS which allows us to obtain all factors affecting the sale price of a home. I advise you to be careful solely relying on public records alone since their information is not fool proof. Public records can typically be accessed online for the bigger cities. Just search for the county assessors office or call the county assessor directly to obtain their local website. Whatever you do don't pay for this information. It is public information and provided free by your county.

Now Mike:
You know we want you to contact a real estate agent! It's more than just the recently sold homes - but also the for sale homes... all this information is a mouse click away - AND - it really is a NO OBLIGATION question.

Any agent would love to give you some time and answer your questions. This does not obligate you to sign a contract - it does however afford you a chance to talk to someone who might save you alot of time and effort. You might even find that you really like the person on the other side.

Give it a chance and if you don't like the result - you didn't lose anything - but you might gain some knowledge.

In Denver County, it can take up to 8 weeks for public records to be updated after a sale!
