Wisconsin Property Sales Information

This searchable Real Estate Transfer Return (RETR) database allows you to locate information on property sales in Wisconsin. Five years of RETR data is available to Wisconsin municipal and county officials, local assessors, and the public who need property sales information. Under Wisconsin law, these records are public information.

We updated the RETR Search tab menu to provide enhanced functionality:

Advanced search

  • Expanded searchable data fields
  • Does not require specific fields to run
  • Includes conveyance date option

Exporting search results to a Comma Separated Value (CSV)

  • Improved export capabilities
  • Search Tips:
    • Avoid large, statewide, searches - takes longer to run since there is more data being searched and retrieved
    • Use the Advanced search screen and select multiple criteria to narrow down your search before exporting to a CSV file
    • Example: Use the advanced search to select criteria for the current search – add one municipality name and one month for the date recorded (Sun Prairie; 03/01/2016 – 03/31/2016)
