Does anybody know a way to find out how old a house is, using the Internet?

your city hall has the records, it's public information, you just have to request it.

Check your county Appraisal District & do a property search (by address or owners name).

No and yes-sort-of.
The records of building permits would be found only at your city hall which may or may not have such records online (odds are against this); record of when your lot was bought would be kept only at the county court house, which may or may not have such records online (odds are against this).

What might be found online won't nail down exactly what date your house was built, but architectural styles of particular eras can be found online and you can at least ballpark the era your house's style was popular.

It's all public information:
Go on line and search for your local property tax office web site. Their information is always up to date and all you have to do is enter the street name, address or owners name will list all properties owned by that person.

That's not true of all cities, towns and villages. The smaller the budget, the less likely it will be online on any website, sorry. This isn't a one-answer-fits-all question that was asked.

I would recommend contacting a real estate agent. We have access to the county tax records (so do you) and we can tell you the year the home was built from these tax records.
