Is it possible to get a database of housing data and export it to excel?

Specifically, I am looking for all of the single-family homes sold in 17601 (Zip Code) and/ or in Lancaster County, PA over the past 5 years.  The only statistics I am looking for are the sale date, price, and the square footage of the house.  If this is possible, then any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks

The search used to give 3 years of recent sales; now it only gives 1 year.

You can use a home ZPID number to get 50 "similar" homes sold within the past 12 months in about a 1 mile radius.  But I don't think that is what you want either.

There are a few other ways to get the data, but Zillow's agreement with the data provider companies is that people will not bulk copy the data...  And Zillow's terms of use don't allow the use of robots.

Probably the best way is through a subscription service, like CoreLogic.

Of course, if you only want aggregate data, Zillow already provides the summary information on the Local info pages by State, County, City, Zip Code, Metropolitan Statistical Area and Neighborhood; all of it down loadable in Excel format.  Trend data in Excel often goes back 14 years.

First American/Corelogic can get you whatever housing data you want...but it is going to cost a lot. A local real estate professional with MLS access may be able to get it via their service, with the data probably provided by First Am. But the agent is already paid up most likely as they have special deals for annual fees. Good luck.

Smr384,

It's possible but highly unlikely.  I'd suggest try visiting the county court house and speak with them in person.  Would probably be your best and most affordable choice.

That may be possible--I don't know the capabilities of the MLS in Lancaster County--but I'm uncertain how that'll help you. All you'd be able to determine from that data are the price per square foot price change over time.

Price per square foot is, itself, a poor way to determine property values. It doesn't take into account home condition, motivation of the seller, lot size, age of home, style of home, and so on. And recognize that sales price doesn't typically include seller concessions or other elements that affect the true amount received by the seller. Even "sales date" can be tricky. What would be more helpful would be the date the property went under contract. That's a better reflection of what's going on in the market at any given instant.

Still, check with a local Realtor to see if the data can be obtained from the MLS.

You can probably find some of that on Zillow.
