In the past sales history information would be left to the proffesionals examine. The internet is helping to change that. Sales history of a certain property can be conducting using a realtor's multiple listing service or by accessing a government site. A realtor can be accessed online, but an MLS report is for the realtor to view and show the customer what is available. The MLS also shows what similar properties have sold for in the recent past. A government site for the city or county will show all sales conducted there. The government site is able to access all sales through it's official records office because all deeds must be recorded there. As more government sites are made available online, home-buyers gain easier access to information.
