Seattle real estate search service Estately added a nice new feature: The ability to see past sales prices of houses listed for sale.
Estately noted that you can use this to see if a house for sale is being flipped or hasn’t changed hands for a long time.
That’s public information available from entities like King County, but it’s nice to have it on hand when searching house listings. Estately’s contracting with Cyberhomes for the info.
Estately’s also expanding its service to the Chicago area and Long Island (but not New York City, where it’s trickier to get the MLS information Estately uses).
Co-founder Galen Ward said Estately’s seeing annualized 300 percent growth, by the way.
