Thanks. But the sale price is recorded in MLS and any realtor would have access to that. If you do not have the license, get your realtor to run a comparative market analysis for the property in question. I am not sure about new homes but the above could be obtained for existing homes IF sold through mls.

The for sale price, not the sold price. Correct?

Nope, the sold price as well. Look at the attachment for a sample cma report. The last column in the sold price of the property in question from mls.

Some builders put ALL their sales in the MLS so appraisers can have the info to appraise homes.

Some builders may only put 10% of their homes in the MLS just so RE Agents will see and bring clients to the development.

So it all depends on the Builder whether they put New homes in the system. Most do not list all homes and if you build from scratch you can request yours not be added. Then there are no sales records.

My experience is the appraisal district will assume you paid the mls list price and it's your job to challenge it. I hired a firm to protest it for me and they were successful in.lowering it based on neighborhood home tax appraisals

The Collin county appraisal district in conjunction with the city call each builder every month asking about the sales price of homes they issued building permits for. You can try to evade disclosing the sales price but they always get their way or guess as close as they can.
