I subscribe to several online magazine editions but most of the property sold data does not display prices which is not a lot of use to me.
Can anyone suggest a reliable internet source that includes pricing on sold property.
Ha, I know what you mean I spend a lot of my time getting frustrated searching online resources and they have NO PRICE.
I fail to understand the point in displaying this sort of information with out pricing.
I am afraid this is a sign of the times Lisa, nothing is for free, I see a lot of websites now a days showing the teaser ie This fantastic property sold at auction for [sign up to see price]
Drives me mad, but I guess things cost money and I presume running a website like this is not cheap.
If the property was listed on realestate.com.au at the time of sale, you should be able to see the sold price by clicking on the “sold” tab. The price is however not always shown (most likely because some owners / agents prefer to suppress it from the public domain).
Why do you think that real estate agents and such are trying to suppress this data from the public eye? Is it because of the fact that they want to be able to get paid in order to provide those numbers, or is it because they worry as to what savvy investors like us could do with the information? I would love to see if there are any other resources that can act as a reliable price guide. This is an interesting conversation – thanks!
Investing4Future, I think that a lot of the issues is about agents trying to maintain relevant. You can get so much info on the web lately, and it can be hard to tell what’s accurate from what isn’t even close to being accurate. There are more free resources than there used to be, and affordable options like HtAG can go a long way, too.
Just wanted to call out that HtAG provides Median Price data for free. However, Median Price forecasts are available only to paying members.
Median Price and Guiding Price is technically the same thing. Investors normally look for advertised price that is at or below the Median Price reported for the suburb.
