B, Home Buyer in North Carolina

Is there a way to research Suffolk County property records online?

Asked by B, North Carolina Wed Aug 6, 2008

I am curious what homes are selling for in a certain neighborhood, but live out of state. I can see what things are listed for through Realtor.com, etc. - just curious if your tax records/deed transfers were online yet like in other parts of the country?

Are you hoping to move back, or just curious?

The most reliable information available is in Riverhead and presently only fee for service companies offer the information on line. If you wish to get data that is specifically only MLS data and homes that are sold through Realtors, then there are many free search engines that can offer you that information.

Hi B,

Our tax records/deed transfers are not online in Suffolk County yet. If you are curious what homes are selling for, I can set you up on an ongoing free report which will let you know as things come up in your area of interest. Just email me privately, corik@optonline.net.

Yes we do. We receive our information through a variety of online sources, including an online database of public records, also various other reports of deed transfers not handled by agents, as well we participate in the MLS system, which a system of comprehensive data exchange, agent to agent.

If your next question is how can a home buyer get access to all that the answer is to work with a Realtor. Perhaps the best way to explain why you need to do that is to say that if you decide to bake some bread, you needs not only some flour, but also some yeast, then you need the two to work together to rise before baking. Without the yeast, you are going to end up with a very flat loaf of bread, and even if you can get the yeast through a friend of a friend, you still need to bake it, or it will be indigestible. It's not accessing the data that's the most critical (although obviously key to the analysis you are trying to accomplish), it's how you interpret the data that is the real skill and is what sets apart one agent from another. If you would like information on a particular area, you can contact me offline at joanna@propertyangels.com and I'll see what I can do.
