The county where the home is located will have deed history on a home. You can usually Google the county and find it's web page and it should have the records. If you go to remax.com or realtor.com you can conduct a search and see if it is on the market. You can even check the local board of realtors web site and see if that information is available to the public. The best thing to do is to probably contact an agent who is a member of the local board and ask him to do a search on that property to see if it was listed and sold. It may vary from state to state depending on how much information is available though.
