Real Estate Transfers

The Department of Records (DOR) published data for all documents recorded since December 06, 1999, including all real estate transfers in Philadelphia. Document type, grantor, and grantee information is presented by address for each transaction. More specifically, the real estate transfers data shows the dates and location of property sales, deeds, mortgages, and sheriff deeds, and includes associated data, such as any realty transfer tax paid. This table contains both raw source data as well as calculated and geocoded/data fields.

Please note that this is a very large dataset and Excel will not load all of the records. If you're only comfortable with Excel, please use either the links for individual years, or the data visualization which allows you to filter the dataset by your specific interests (i.e. a zip code) and then export a custom CSV from the table at the bottom of the visualization. We provide the CSV of All Years mostly for developers to use when coding. If you are comfortable with APIs, you could also use the API links to access this data. You can learn more about how to use the API at Carto’s SQL API site and in the Carto guide in the section on making calls to the API.
