When you see PUBLIC RECORD at the end of a transaction on the PRICE HISTORY section, it simply means the sale is now a matter of and provided by some sort of public entity....PUBLIC RECORD. It has nothing to do with who sold it or who bought it. Even if one individual sells to another individual, in many states it becomes part of PUBLIC RECORD.

The sales prices of homes in CA are NOT all public record.  You may request that the title company not post the number.  

Also, sometimes the "sales" price posted actually reflects some other transaction or refinance, and is not an actual sale.

No.  Public record does not imply bank owned property.   Sales prices of all homes in CA are public record.

When a property is listed as Public Record would that indicate bank oowned or sold to third party?

The sales history on properties are all sales, not just foreclosures.    Sometimes a family transfer is erroneously recorded as a sale, for example $1 sale when transferring a home to a trust account.
