GIS is an acronym for Geographical Information Systems. Municipalities setup online databases that show previous sale prices, tax assessments and other useful information. It is commonly referred to as GIS. I hope this helps.

Check your local tax records. The best way is to search via the internet on your county or city's GIS or real estate valuation dept. online. It may take a little while to update from the recordation of the deed.

We put our house on the market in May 2007, anticipating a move to Illinois (where we have lived since 8/07) due to my husband's new job as a professor. It remained on the market with several offers which were less than what we owed, and which the banks dragged their feet on, thereby losing the offers. We had to move, and left the house on the market, no other offers being made. We put about $10K into the house before we left, naively thinking it would improve our chances of selling it. Wrong.

County records will tell you. Having answered your question directly, let me chime in that the home was very likely sold to the bank since they will bid what is owed to them on the loan, which I am guessing is more than your property is worth? The bank will be starting the eviction process soon. Have you moved?
