Thanks for the tips, but I use the local MLS for comps as I am an agent. My comments to the Oklahoma City investor is that he/she is very lucky if it is true that the citizens of that county can get comps for free on their public access web site. My county, nor counties within a hundred miles, offer comps. Most just offer property profile information concerning taxes and the parcel in question, not searches of comparables. Some nearby counties don’t even offer on-line access to their tax parcel information. This is Washington though and maybe Oklahoma is far more liberal in their releasing of data to the public.

Are there any online sites that provide comps on real estate without requiring a realtor contact you? If anyone knows of such sites, I would appreciate a reply to this post. Thanks!

Can’t speak to ultimate credibility of numbers, but it will give you a good idea. Also, asks you for your email addy. I suggest you put in bogus info, as I have been inundated with junk mail after visiting this site…lotsa consolidation loans, porn and viagra ads. I don’t need any viagra.

I don’t know where you live,but I live in Oklahoma City and we have a web site for the tax assessor which also will search comps for you. This site gives tons of information on property.

Good Luck!!

One site I’ve found useful is www.domania.com It will give recent selling prices of homes near the address you are comparing broken down by number of rooms, baths, etc. Down side is that it doesn’t list square footage and doesn’t cover all states in the U.S. Hope this helps. Tim

Are you sure you are talking comps, and a search for them?

It would be nice and I guess you are lucky to have this available to you from a public county web site.

Here, there is no way to search for 3 bedroom, 2 bath, double garage, 2 story, houses, in the north east area of Tacoma. If you can do that on your tax assessor’s web site, you definately have a nice resource. We don’t have comps available on our county web site, only tax and parcel information about individual properites and no way to get a list of properties that are comparable to it.

I wish our county had what you have… :frowning:

I’m in Florida - in Palm Beach County. I also wonder if that service is available online, without having to have a realtor contact me. Thanks for any guidance.

The absolute best comp website is Domania.com no bothersome e-mails to be sent the info is given to you right then and there. Also you have Homegain.com which is also very good at giving you the info right on the spot, lastly you have Housevalue.com and they require your e-mail address and they have a realtor send you e-mails, but the info is always useful. Good Luck.
