I'm trying to find out when a home last sold and what the sale price was.

Be careful to get records from third party sources such as Zillow, the information that they list, often times, seems to be incorrect. Make sure you are getting accurate information.

For an accurate look at previous home sale prices you should check with the tax accessor or from a Realtor.

One thing to be careful of--even with tax records--is they can be incomplete, inaccurate, or misleading.

Incomplete: The tax records may not show/reflect recent additions to a property.

Inaccurate: Sometimes the numbers (square footage, for instance) are just plain wrong. Or with my home, for example, the tax records show electric heat and say that gas isn't available. However, gas was run to our home more than 10 years ago, and we switched over more than a decade ago.

Misleading: The tax records might show that a property sold for $300,000. That technically might be correct. However, it won't reflect any "seller subsidies." So, for example, a $300,000 sale with a 3% seller subsidy actually netted the seller $291,000 (before other expenses). The real number you'd be interested in is $291,000, not $300,000.

A final note: Remember that what a home's last sales price was has almost no relationship to what its current price it. It can help with negotiating: If you see that the owners bought it 10 years ago for $150,000 and it's now on the market for $300,000, you know there's probably some negotiating room. But if they bought it in 2006 for $320,000 and it's now on the market for $300,000, it probably means they can't afford to go much lower. In neither case, though, can you tell what the house is worth today.

Hope that helps.

The Tulsa County Courthouse Administration Building (NW corner of 6th and Denver) is the only place I know of where the public can find an informative sales history on specific properties. But even then, the process is not user friendly. It takes patience and time to learn how to use the proper search commands for their catalog system. Your best bet is to contact a Realtor. We have database access (that we pay for) readily at our fingertips and can quickly email you the results.,,, /dustinthames

That information is not just readily available to the public to search for on the internet. You can get basic idea's from Zillow or similar sites but your best bet is to talk to a Realtor in your area that you trust. Some Realtors will give you basic information to assist you with no string attached but they will probably have a few questions as to what you are needing the data for, and this is because we are in the business obviously to earn a living and want to try to secure any possible lead that we can. Just be honest with what you need and they should be willing to assist. If I can be of further assistance please visit my website

I do believe that you can access some sites, i e zello, trulia, that will give you the closed sales, but they may or may not be current as many times they seem to be many weeks behind the sale.
You can contact any realtor to get the answer to your questions. as Ken stated in his answer we have access to the records and would be willing to assist you.

As a Realtor Associate I have access to the Tulsa County assessor's data which may reflect the last sale date and price. I also subscribe to RedLink which has assessor data and appraisal data.
