Can websites like Zillow and trulia hide previous home sale information? Sometimes they list it, sometimes they don’t. A home went up for sale 2 years ago for ~$375k and was later sold around that price. Today that same house is for sale again by somebody that flipped it, and they’re asking $834k, but now Zillow is hiding the previous home value sale history / estimate. Can flippers pay a fee to Zillow to hide this information because of the gross price they’re charging?

I just bought a house for 500k under what it was listed for originally. Closed a month ago - none of the sites have updated for the sale and the details of the listing were just purged across all real estate sites - just as the listing agent put up two new listings (the house across the street and one two doors down) at prices even higher than where he started this house, for less house in both cases. Listing agent also deleted all of his social posts for this house and had our agent un tag him in a post he put up congratulating us. There 100% has to be a pay to play hide the detail option on all the sites - planning to ask my agent about it when he’s over for drinks next week.

I know the info is out there for appraisers / buyers agents to find if they dig - but OPs question was if the data on the consumer facing sites can be manipulated and it definitely can be. Seems like a pretty underhanded business practice by the Zillow’s / Redfins of the world that make themselves out to consumers as a potential replacement for traditional agents and as sources of reliable info. Good reminder that having a good buyers agent is still important

As an FYI, the home price history was previously available for this home when it was up for sale 2 years ago

You know you can still find house value history in your county’s public records if you are concerned.
I have seen this with Zillow too so I assume that it is possible to hide

Well I know it likely sold for around the asking price, and can check county records if I wanted to see the exact figure. But I’m trying to gauge whether they will intentionally do it or for a fee if something is like a 2x price hike and completely egregious

Don't know if it's still the case, but it used to be that Zillow didn't regularly sync county records or with the MLS. It's just a real estate marketing platform, not a county records listing.

If you have Redfin in your area, their app/website usually lists the sales history on properties. Of course, what it sold for in the past means nothing now. People can list whatever price they want for a house; the market determines whether it's worth that.
