Knowing how long a house has been on the market helps when negotiating the price. The house I bought was listed on 5-27-2011 at $169,000 they changed the price on 8-26-2011 from $154,000 to $145,000 and I offered them $130,000 in Jan 2012 and they accepted. I doubt they would have been willing to negotiate that much if it had only been on the market a month.
So there is no place on the internet for someone to find out the listing history of a house, only a realtor can do that?
The listing agent may be able to provide you with some insight on this information.
You absolutely want to find a Realtor to assist you...otherwise you will miss the very best deals. Some asset managers will accept an offer the first day it is listed so you need an attentive Realtor.
All the best,
