How to Find Out How Much a House Sold For (Fast & Accurate)

Don’t want to go through a lengthy process before knowing how much a house is sold for? Luckily, it can be done in one click.

The easiest way to get the selling price of a house is to use a third-party tool. Real estate transactions are public records. You can access a reputed public database like BeenVerified to try to find out a house’s history.

price history

What’s more, you will be able to view the owner and residents’ contact information. There is also detailed information about the house and the neighborhood, including but not limited to what is shown below:

  • Ownership & deeds
  • Tax history
  • Sales history
  • Property details

How to try to find out how much a house sold for quickly?

Finding out how much a house is sold for can be easy. Here’s how to try:

  1. Go to the BeenVerified search page, and select Address Lookup.
  2. Enter the address correctly. Wait for the recommended address to pop up. Select the address and BeenVerified will be searching their database.
  3. BeenVerified offers a 7-day trial membership for $1, which enables you to run wide range of searches. It’s definitely worth a try.
People search services are often not free because they pay for expensive bulk data. An effective and powerful search tool always comes at a certain price.

What’s the traditional way to get the sales history?

If you’re not very interested in checking the sales history using a third-party tool, or you’re just very curious about other options of finding out how much a house is sold for, below you will find every possible alternative way.

1. Contact a real estate agent

The data is available online, so many of us won’t bother asking a real estate agent about the selling price of a house. If you’re comfortable working with a real estate agent, they can provide all the little details including the sales history, and help you conduct a comparative market analysis.

If you’re wondering about the sales price of a house in your neighborhood, you can also pay attention to the name of the company on the sign. Give the realtor a quick call. They can check in the local MLS and find the information you need.

2. Check real estate websites

Another way to find out how much a house is sold is to gather information on some real estates websites such as Zillow and Realtor.

However, this is probably the most inaccurate way of getting sales prices. Sowe recommends this as a last resort. Here’s how to check the sales price of a house:

While you are on Zillow, you can zoom in and start highlighting the neighborhood of the house you’re interested in. Click on the yellow button, and you will be able to view how much this house was sold for.

If you’re on Realtor, enter the address, and it will list all sold houses in this area.

You can also do this on other real estate listing websites such as Trulia.

3. Contact the owner

If the sales are public, and you don’t feel like contacting a realtor, you can try contacting the owner and politely ask them about the actual selling price.

This is especially the case if you spot a home that’s for sale by the owner, you will likely have to contact that owner to get the sold price.

If you don’t know the owner’s contact information, you can use BeenVerified to run a reverse address lookup.
