Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Why is there a spot for "sold date" and "sold price" if it doesn't show anywhere on the property website?
A. Those fields are more for your own reference so that you can keep track of when listings were sold and how much they were sold for. The sold date and sold price does appear on the Sold FlashCard. To learn more about Sold Flashcards, click here.
