There aren't any services in one spot that cover them all
It is often like a puzzle, fitting in pieces of information from several different services. Each has its own idiosyncrasies.
Yeah thats what ive done until now-but theres gotta be a better way

Nassau & Suffolk use flex MLS. I have not been working Long Island in a few years but many brokers list every home as mint no matter what condition it is. Now interior photos help. A word of caution, Before the housing collapse I did a lot of work in Brentwood & Central Islip. Prices kept soaring and there were a few brokers who started posting phony listings and/or incorrect sale prices to provide us with comps. It took weeks to months to get recorded and once we figured out what they were doing we did not use any sale that was not on Comps Inc which comes directly from the town records. I doubt that is happening now but it was crazy and these brokers got irate when we said we could no longer use any sales they listed as closed on the MLS without it also being confirmed on Comps Inc.....Correction Long Island uses Stratus MLS.

If you find it, let me know. I have completed appraisals in all five bouroughs, Westchester, Nassau, and Suffolk. Other than Westchester, Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk with decent MLS's, it is a struggle to get any kind of consistent data.

Hasn't been Flex for a while. It is Stratus, the Core logic MLS.

Around what time frame was the problems in CI and Brentwood. Things were interesting from Brooklyn to Montauk back in the years before the run up in 2007 and 2008. Things have calmed down since then, but all info has to be verified. Some brokers are worse than others and then there a couple of good ones in there also.

poster note: not an endorsement or opinion.

MAY or may not have specific local data in your desired markets. MAY be worth a look see.
That has been showing a presence in the boroughs. I asked a Brooklyn broker why he used it. He said it is a lot cheaper than the Long Island or Brooklyn MLS. He also said it did not have the coverage of the other two.

You are right. I just woke up and thought oh boy, I confused the old with the new. It is Stratus. I think it was around 2007-2008 when this stuff was happening with the brokers in those areas. Just a few who I guess did not realize we would figure it out.
