REAL ESTATE SALES

Various types of real estate documents recorded in the Walworth County Register of Deeds Office are linked by the Property Listing division to the applicable tax parcel identification number.  The application entitled “Real Estate Sales Search” is available for viewing a list of those documents for a particular municipality.  The results displayed cover a one-month period beginning with the date entered.  While there are some earlier documents, the information primarily begins with documents recorded in 1973.
