Does Trulia list all of the recent home sales in any given zip code or just some of them?

Asked by Allison, 08873 Thu Apr 30, 2009

I'm looking at recent sales in 08873 and I'm curious as to whether this is just a sample of sold homes or a complete list.

Not sure if your goal here to determine resale value or to investigate a possible tax appeal.

Your best sources for real time info are (1) a real estate agent as he/she can provide you with the "on market" sales and (2) the official county tax records as they will show "off market" sales (those not listed with an agent and sold via a multiple listing system.

I've recently assisted two clients for the purpose of a tax appeal and we had to use both for sources in order to provide a true picture of the neighborhood sales.

As for Trulia and other internet portals, it is my opinion that they don't provide "complete lists."

Love and Peace,

Hello Allison,
You didn't mention if your search is to determine the value of your home or if you are looking to purchase a local property. However, to ensure that you have all pertinent information concerning recently sold homes, I would advise requesting it from a local real estate agent or checking the public access to Garden State and/or Middlesex MLS. For your convenience here is a link to both:
