If you purchased the prperty the 2003 value does not matter. Your basis for tax purposes is purchase price plus any capital improvements less accumulated depreciation. If you acquired the property through an estate in 2003, if there was an estate attorney they may have notes in their file regarding the value at time of death (there are several options to value the property post mortem).

If you inherited the property then you should contact the Urban Team who answered you and offered their assistance.

Have your Agent run the comps for the months just around that time period, and the comps now.

Have you spoken with an accountant about this? You will really need advice from an expect in that field.

I can come up with a retrospective value by using comparable properties in 2003 to give you a value. Please give me a call to discuss.
