Although MLS should be consistent where it overlaps the Public Record, there are inconsistencies, errors or omissions. When you are making the largest purchase of your life you want to have all relevant information available to you as soon as possible in order to simplify your search and help you see more clearly what you are buying.
Reporting MLS and Public Records in two columns, side by side you see potential descrepancies that need explaining, due diligence or affect the value of the subject property.
Furthermore, the Public Record column contains additional information not found in the MLS. This information can be helpful when qualifying a property, estimating it's value and negotiating price.
Additionally, we give you links to all MLS sales records and photos on every property.
- Actual Real Property Tax, Assessed Values, Invoices & Payment History
- Easements, Flood and Tsunami Maps
- Seller loan information
- Public & Biennial Reports, Owner Occupancy %
- Building Permit History
- Chain of title
- AOAO Condo Docs when available
- Leasehold Disclosure Docs when available
There may be disclosures in past listings which aren't mentioned in the latest listing.
Previous photos will be taken from different angles. The same photos reveal the location of hidden repairs. Sometimes new listings won't have any photos and you can glean strategic information from photos and descriptions in previous listings.
This information helps you qualify property faster and easier than other buyers and deepen your due diligence.
