The source is the Lawrence MLS, which as previously stated, is not public and we as Realtors are not allowed to post the addresses of SOLD properties unless we personally SOLD them. Any of the other 239 Lawrence Realtors could verify that the number as of yesterday was 702. Today, in the past year, it was 698. Your source is Yahoo and that is not a valid source for real estate SOLD data as was proven earlier when I stated the Active listings for Lawrence and provided the website that shows that exact number of Active listings. The only way to see the accurate list of the 698 that SOLD in the past year would be to sit alongside one of the 240 Realtors while they logged in to the Lawrence MLS and searched for all the SOLDs in the past year. Laura, Lisa, and Marilyn are the other 3 Lawrence area Realtors who have answered this question. You could contact them and get the exact same number of 698 SOLD from today 12-23-11 back one year to 12-23-10. If you would have asked them yesterday, it would have been 702.
