Are you a nosy neighbor? C'mon, admit it!
When it comes to real estate and property values, everyone wants to know how much their friends and neighbors made when they sold their home.
In the past, you may have felt like a Peeping Tom. You'd check over both shoulders, make sure nobody else was around before surreptitiously grabbing a property flyer from outside your neighbor's home and looking for the asking price. You might even call up the listing agent whose picture adorned the "For Sale" sign, posed as a buyer and asked the listing price. You'd sneak into any open house, as much to gauge interest in the home and find out the price as to see how your friend or neighbor lives and decorates.
Getting a peek into someone else's home -- a guilty pleasure for just about everyone.
Information on home prices is much more readily available today than it used to be. Anyone with an internet connection can get on various websites -- local, regional, national, company, or agent -- and find out the current asking price of just about any home on the market.
However, once a home sells, there is a lag time of often many months before the sales price becomes public information in the tax records of the Northern Virginia city or county.
Whether you plan to put your Northern Virginia home on the market or you're in the market to purchase a home, information on the final sales price of homes is crucial in making your decision regarding pricing your home for sale or determining an offer price for the home you desire.
This data is often closely guarded by REALTORS who wish to be the gatekeepers of the sold property information.
Here's no-obligation access to the best tool on the market for seeing the sold prices of homes in the areas of Northern Virginia that interest you most.
Just click on the SoldHomes Smart Search icon below and sign in for access to help you make more informed real estate decisions. You can also use this system to search for homes currently on the market.
Spy on your neighbors or your friends.
You know you want to!
