Gilmar -
Realtor.com info only comes from the MLS.  Realtors are very good about keeping that source current.  We get some of our information from that source, but certainly not all. Some MLSs don't want to syndicate.  We actually take data from over 500 feeds (sources).  Some and very current, some are less than so.

Addressing Sara;s answer above, the listing says "Some information on page provided by..not "data provided by".

hat doesn't make sense. The listing agent's sites are current and isn't that where the data feed comes from? realtor is current. Homeseekers is current. But Zillow's listing is not

Hi Gilmar,

Here's a link to a good free tool that I offer which generates up-to-date real estate market & comparable sales reports which are refreshed by the MLS every 15 minutes (new listings included.) Threre are also built in tabs with pages of detailed & mapped community information for shools, public services, businesses, and local points of interest to name just a few.

Please contact me anytime through my Zillow profile for specific property searsches or more information. Best of luck.

Wetdawgs is right that we merely display what information is sent to us. 

As far as seeing the source of old data, if you scroll to the bottom on the listing, it will say "data provided by....".  If the agent updates the information here (such as the status or price change), then the change will be reflected on the site.

Listings are the responsibility of owners and agents to update.  Zillow merely provides a data feed.
