Default is there a way to find old listing pictures of sold houses?

I just moved and am trying-don't want to knock on doors-to see what others have done with the house on the inside. I live in a 50 developement area and I know about 10 houses who have flipped over the past 5 years. I'd like to see what there kitchens looked like, etc. Anyway to find the old listing pics? Thanks.

You can ask an agent in your area to email you the previous lisings on homes in your devolpment.

Just go knock on doors, the pictures are nice but you get a much better feel in person.
Most people love to show off their homes, plus meeting the people in your neighborhood is a good thing.

It sounds like you want to see what the neighbors have done to their kitchens. Do I have this right?

Most MLS delete interior pictures, X days after closing.

Find models like your own and go out an meet the neighbors.

Give this a try. Go on Google and enter the address and city in separate quotes: "123 Main Street" "Anytown"

If any old listings come up, don't click on the title of the Google listing. Instead, look at the bottom of the little Google blurb, past the web address and find the light blue underlined word-- Cached. That's an old version of the web page. Click on that and sometimes, you'll find pictures from old listings. Sometimes not. But it's worth a shot.
