Jonathon has provided a viable option below. In the meantime, I have already compiled a database with statistics for Fairfield on a monthly/quarterly/and yearly basis dating back to 2001. If you're interested in the # of units sold, average list/sale price, median list/sale price, and/or average market time I can provide them to you. I also have the % change for each category compared to the same time period of the previous year. Please let me know if I can help.
Real Estate Professionals also can supply property history, too. The cost is a usually the chance to make your acquaintenance in hopes that you will do business with them.

The statistics Chris mentions below would also be very helpful. I will try to contact him as well.
If you would like accurate inforamtion about homes that have sold, I would be glad to let you search the MLS for free. Visit fairfieldhomes.listingbook.com Within minutes, you can retrieve data directly from the MLS, about homes that are currently on the market, homes that are pending, and homes that have sold. HAVE FUN!
However, if you're looking for comps, the question is whether you SHOULD. In many areas, data on sales of property from, say, 2006 would give an entirely misleading picture of the value of a property. There are plenty of areas around me (Northern Virginia) where houses that sold for $500,000 in 2006 are selling for $225,000 today. Condos that sold for $300,000 in 2006 are selling for $90,000 today. And other areas--more to your point--where properties sold for $400,000 in 2006 and there are no recent sales. No way to tell for sure what those properties are worth.
My suggestion would be to contact a Realtor. Don't just ask for sales. Ask for properties that were listed and didn't sell. Maybe they were withdrawn. Or maybe the owner decided to rent the property instead.
In the example above, of a $400,000 property without recent sales comps, I'd look at all activity. Maybe a few houses were listed last year at $300,000 and didn't sell. That tells you the price is somewhere below $300,000. Maybe a house was listed for sale at $320,000 and for rent at $1,700 and ended up being rented. Again, an indication that $320,000 was too high.
That's what I'd do before relying on sales from three years ago.
Hope that helps.
In some instances may have past 6 months past, many issues are involved.
If you dont have a realtor investigate MLS sold properties, an appraiser is next option
