Hey,

Any clues on where one might access sales history going back ten years or so.
Of course, I can envision the paper chase, but are there subscribed services for this type of research.
And it is good to be back, (like you even knew I was gone.)

Our MLS goes back 5 years. I just recently disposed of my old sold books back to 1972. I was about to cry!

Our local Recorder has 20+ years of records on the internet. All sorted by Grantee/Grantor. Check with your county's web site. Also, customer service at the title companies will do it for you IF you are nice to them.

What about your county or city assessment or tax district/assessment office? I know Montana is a non disclosure state, but there has to be some city/county/state office that is responsible for assessement of property so that property taxes can be collected. They would at least have a chain of title for each parcel--just so they would know who to send the tax bill each year. And since Montana is a non disclosure state, that probably wouldn't give you the sales price but would provide any transfer dates. How do you find the sale price in your specific non disclosure state? In my area of Arizona (which has been full disclosure since 1968) majority of sales are FSBOs so MLS isn't too helpful. MLS has only been computerized about 5 years--assessor's office info goes back to 1968.

If you can't find a place with the prior deeds like the assessors office or an on line service you can always do a title search.
