I have access to the MLS. And I am a Realtor in Florida.
If you are doing a Forensic Check on the prices, I would be happy to help you with the research. It would be like doing a retroactive CMA
There will be a cost. And it will take a lot of time, depending on what you were looking for.
You would have to be there with me for a couple of hours at the beginning, defining all the parameters, for example, where is downtown by streets, the size of the condos in square feet that have 3 bedrooms that are in question, new Condos or existing Condos, how you would like the report to look like (ie: price per square foot in 1st quarter, 2nd, and so forth).
A major problem is, New Home Sales AND Builder's Incentives and Subsidies are usually not recorded on the MLS!!!
And to worsen the problem, New Homes' Purchase Prices that are recorded in the Land Records at the Court House do not include the Builder's Incentives and Closing Cost Assistance, and other Subsidies offered to the Buyers.
In some areas of the United States, the Real Estate Agents have to enter subsidies paid for by the Seller/Builder into the MLS. To date, I haven't seen that as a requirement in Florida.
There is a lot of smoke and mirrors in the numbers that are recorded! And if Builder's were Unscrupulous, they could hide a lot of information (such as more and more Incentives being paid to new home buyers) and put the tax burden on the new home buyers (keeping the prices high and giving more and more to the new home buyers), as well as Drive Up Prices, or keep prices Inflated (in a changing from Seller's Market to Buyer's Market), when actually, they were selling properties for less, or better equiped properties for less (if you keep the sales price the same and give more, ie, $15,000 upgrades for free if you buy today).
You could do a lot of the work yourself utilizing Palm Beach County's Property Appraiser's Public Access System and the other online Government web sites. You can go to the Land Records Section at the Court House as well.
Might I ask why you are asking for this information?
