Sold means that the property, real estate, condo, town-home, or single family residence has successfully closed escrow. It is the “time frame” that might be unknown to you as a consumer.
Zillow and other Real Estate Pricing and Valuation websites pull their data from the Recorders Offices and the Multiple Listing Services when Closed Escrows Occur.
However, when properties are reflecting the “sold” status, it is at that time that the actual sold price can be revealed. During the properties life during Active, Backup and Pending, those values cannot be disclosed to any prospective buyer or other agent. Not to say that this does not happen, but it is not supposed to!
When talking “appraisal”, they want to view a three month history of “sold” inventory that are all “spot on” matches with regard to the property they are evaluating. If there is not enough to substantiate a good “fair market value” in that three month time frame, they expand their search to six months.
