The simplest answer is if you have a real estate agent who is a friend, ask them to run a search of similar sales in your neighborhood on their MLS. Otherwise, you will have to go to the courthouse and search for sales in the property records department, a/k/a assessment office a/k/a county appraiser’s office. Every municipality is different, so I can’t really give you a good answer other than you’ll have to spend some time in the courthouse. It will get easier each time you do it.
