Jennie and Don are both correct. Both this site, and zillow.com do have a limited amount of information on price changes and length of time on market. But remember that the info source is 3rd party, and is subject to errors and delays.

Here is one example: There's a nice listing in Windham that has had a couple of price reductions. You can see the listing here: http://www.trulia.com/property/1088896216-9-Hancock-Rd-Windh…

Scroll to the bottom of the Trulia listing and notice the following price reductions:
11/11/2009 Price change $379,900
11/04/2009 Price change $388,000
10/14/2009 Price change $397,950

HOWEVER, here is the real story:
Property listed for $397,500 on 10/10/09
Price reduction to $388,000 on 10/24/09.
Price reduction to $379,900 on 11/06/09.

Not bad... just a couple of days off, right? What difference can just a couple of days make? In this case, it makes all the difference. An offer was accepted on the property on 11/10/09, before anyone price-watching here or on other sites knew about the price reduction.

Internet sites are GREAT for doing research and familiarizing yourself with trends in an area. And if somebody is dead-set against having a Buyer's Agent work on their behalf, that is for them to decide. However, a Buyer's Agent will IN MOST CASES be the source for the most accurate and up to date information...

This site does that for some of the properties. Just type in the address and then click the "Price Trends" tab.

The best way to get this information is to have a Realtor that you want to work with. Realtors have access to the MLS information that the public does not. It's best to work with one Realtor and that way they can keep you up to date on the properties that fit your criteria. If you have any questions or would like help with anything, feel free to contact me, My contact info is below.

As the others say, any Realtor can get that information for you, and that's the most reliable source. Before I became a Realtor, I used Zip Realty's web site, which provided some of that information.

I hate to sound like a broken record, but the answer is... your agent. The information on the Multiple Listing Service is not considered "public knowledge", but is accessible only to those who actually belong to the MLS. All of the info (days on market, price changes, status changes, etc) is information that your agent will be happy to share with you.

If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact me at your convenience. My contact info is below. Thanks, and enjoy the day!!

As ussual, with a local Realtor. Local Realtor must have acces to local MLS sytem and could do the search for you.
You could call an office for someone on floor duty or for any agent. You do not need a contract but be ready to answer questions, such as, are you pre approved to buy? Are you just looking? What are your motivations for this property?
