Redfin is one of the first sites to give you real-time information on what's selling. Drawing on data from the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) that real estate agents use to record sales, we get the details on a closing within minutes, not months. And we get the information you really need to analyze the sale, showing the same photos, price history, and property details used to market the listing. Now you can see what an agent sees when preparing a comparative market analysis. When we don't have information on sold homes from the MLS, we get the data from public records.

Why Do I Need to Register?
You need to register because many MLSs require us to register you before we can show you data about recent sales; in some cases we have to take the additional step of verifying your email address. Redfin complies with this rule, but will never call you or sell you out just because you registered on our site.
Why Should I Look at Sold Homes?
Now you have the same data that real estate agents use to track the market. Looking at homes that recently sold gives you a feel for what the market is doing and helps you establish a range for the fair market value of a home by assembling a comparative market analysis. In almost every market we serve, we show you the price history in the Property History section of the home details page.
Our sold data is the best out there:
See homes that just sold: see homes that sold almost immediately after the listing agent marks it as sold in the MLS.
Photos: we show as many photos as we can.
Detailed amenities: we show you not just the number of beds or baths but also an exhaustive list of amenities.
How to Search for Sold Homes
To start a search for sold homes, just click the More Options link under the Search Listings button at the top of any page on Redfin. In the lower left is a checkbox to include sale records in your search, as well as a drop-down to select how far back in time you want to go. Once you have checked that box, you can use other search options on Redfin to narrow down the type of sold homes you are interested in. Click Update Search to run your search.
What About Homes Under Contract?
Listings under contract to a buyer but not yet closed no longer appear in a Redfin search for active listings. They don't appear in a search for sold homes either because the sale has not yet closed. To search for these homes under contract, use the Status dropdown on the search options form.
How many listings we can show depends on the market, and the rules of the local MLS. In some markets, we show homes in the earliest stages of a purchase, where the offer is still contingent on an inspection; in other markets we only show homes where there are no contingencies remaining and the sale is scheduled to close on a specific date. Since some MLSs require us to register users before showing listings under contract, make sure you are signed in and using a Redfin account that has a verified email address. We always show as much data as we can, without requiring registration whenever possible.
How Do I Distinguish Between For-Sale and Sold Homes?
Sold homes are indicated with a blue icon on the map and blue shading on the home details page. For-sale listings and under contract listings are indicated with green icons and shading. For-sale-by-owner homes are pink and bank-listed foreclosures are purple.
How Much Sold Information Can I See?
We show all the information that each MLS allows. Unfortunately, most MLS's require that users are registered and have a verified email address to see all the information. Registration on Redfin is free and we'll never spam you. When we don't have sold information from the MLS we'll show you sold information from public records.
