Since we live in a largely rural state, sites like Realtor.com may be of little help unless you live in a larger town. Most of the sites are in the Atlanta or central Ga. areas. Give it a try and see what you find. The listings at Realtor.com will not give you a lot of specific information in most cases. The information is similar to the edited listing sheets that you can get from a Realtor.
The MLS system contains much more information that Realtors never show you. I, too, am convinced that Realtors guard this information to justify their fees.
But since the MLS system is managed by the local Board of Realtors, their is little recourse, except making friends with a Realtor that will give you the complete printout or do the work yourself. Don’t be discouraged, I have gotten the entire listing sheet from Realtors before, you just have to find the right one.
I found the following site for the Gwinnett County tax commissioner’s office.
Use the OTIS link from that page to access the tax records. You must have the tax account number or the parcel ID #. I found this link by accident, and since it is not in my area, I don’t have an account # or parcel ID to check and see what info you can actually find.
Oh yeah, I should probably mention that I do live in GA. ( Lowndes County )
