Hello - most any agent can, including myself, find the information you are requesting.
Just a little information like the specific neighborhood is all that is needed.

I look forward to helping you, good luck.

Grace was certainly not suggesting I'm the only local source of information! There are many awesome Realtors that service Union City.

Hi HI, the answer to your question depends on what criteria you look at, and the further you dive into details the more accurate your answer will be.

Since it looks like you may be researching a new purchase, rather than a wide-sweeping approach to the information you seek consider having a Realtor perform a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA), which is the "gold standard" for determining pricing trends based on a targeted search criteria (beds/baths/SF, etc.). A CMA always provides the best representation of market price/activity/trend direction - for the specific property details you search on (and it shows the details you are looking for).

You may also find this 2Y history for Union City useful as well (Detached single family homes (no condo/TH), 3 bed, 2 bath, min SF of 1200): http://docs.Steven-Anthony.com/UnionCity2yrSFR3-2-1200.pdf
This will list: a) Median Sold Price, b) Sold Properties, c) For Sale Properties, d) Under Contract Properties, e) New Properties Listed, f) Supply/Demand, g) Average Days on Market, h) Months Supply of Inventory.

I need to make a comment regarding the first chart you will see, the Median Sold Price chart. I typically advise Buyers to NOT use Median price reports for making purchase decisions due to the fact a “median” is defined as “the number separating the higher half of a sample from the lower half.” Most Median reports are of questionable usefulness because the sample data it too wide, which can be skewed by segments of market activity not matching your individual “target home.” For example, I’m sure you can appreciate the difference in data quality between an “all home sales in Union City” versus “all single family home sales in Union City." The more detailed your criteria, the more meaningful it will be.

Best, Steve

Brian's right. Any agent who's analytical and tech savvy, and a member of the MLS who knows how to run reports can generate the information you seek. Make sure you are working with an experienced agent.

It's a very dynamic market right now and experience will help you win. Good luck on your hunt.

Try emailing Carl Medford. He's the Trulia Voices "Mayor" and can be found here on Trulia. Simply go to Trulia Pros and look for Carl Medford. He's located in Fremont, but can assist you with comparables or can refer you directly to someone who can provide you with the information that you seek.

If you should need the same information from Santa Clara County, feel free to contact me directly.

Good luck!!
