Whether you’re looking to enter a new market, or scale the size of an existing opportunity, it’s crucial to have a reliable way to identify commercial property owners across a trail of assets.
With Reonomy, you can identify owners, analyze their portfolios, and access contact information, even without having the address of a property (in most cases).
Here, we’ll show you how you can maintain this flexibility when analyzing opportunities and making strategic decisions for your business.
Find Out Who Owns Commercial Property Without an Address
Your team can use Reonomy data to:
- Access the names of commercial property-owning LLCs.
- Drill into LLCs to see members, owner names, and full owner contact information.
- Connect data between LLCs, owners, and other properties to see connections across portfolios.
Let’s dive into some specific examples on the Reonomy platform. (Note: By integrating Reonomy data with your own, you’ll be able to access similar info with your own internal resources).
Use Reonomy to Find Decision-Makers
Reonomy’s network of data is connected enough, where you only need a few small details to find a property, and thereby crack into the ownership associated with it.
If you know where a property lies, you can simply use Reonomy’s integrated map tool to free-roam and zoom in on your target.
Once zoomed in, click the parcel shape of the lot, then click the address that subsequently pops up.
Once you click, you’ll be taken to the property profile page, where you can see the address, as well as the parcel’s APN, building and lot information, sales history, debt history, owner details and contact information, current tenants, and more.
Your other option is to input known information about a property to work your way down to it.
You can add in portions of an address—say, zip code, neighborhood, or street name.
You can also look for certain property types and sizes within any location.
Search Decision-Makers by Neighborhood or Street Name
You can begin your search with the geographic specifications that you do know on the parcel.
In the Location tab of Reonomy’s search app, you can add separate filters for city, county, zip code, neighborhood, and street name.
This is an easy way to find a property owner of an asset where you know the street, but not the number of the property.
After you’ve added these filters, you can then either use the map to find an individual property (as shown previously), or continue adding filters in case you’re unsure exactly where a property lies.
Here’s an example:
Let’s say you know of a medical office building on South Blvd in Charlotte, NC, but you’re unsure what the number of the building is.
With a quick Reonomy property search, you can first add a location filter for the city of Charlotte, NC, or the MSA of Charlotte-Concord-Gastonia, NC-SC.
Then, enter the street name, “South Blvd.”
If you’d like, you can then move to the Asset Type tab and add a filter for “Medical Building.” That filter is a sub-selection of the “Office” asset class.
It’s important to note that this same process can be used to find the owner of any other commercial asset type as well.
Find Decision-Makers based on Tenants
As another example, let’s say you’re trying to find the owner of a retail property, and you don’t know the address, but do know who the tenant is.
Another way to find property owners without an address in Reonomy is to search by the tenant name or tenant type.
So this time, you know of a CVS Pharmacy on South Blvd in Charlotte, and you’d like to contact the owner.
After adding your location filters as mentioned above, you can then visit the Tenant tab of the Reonomy search app and enter the name or NAICS/SIC code of your desired tenant.
By entering “CVS” into the “Tenant” search bar you’ll only be shown properties that have CVS as a tenant.
With a street name and tenant in place, it’s unlikely that you’ll generate a large quantity of properties. At this point you can start digging into individual assets.
Seeing the Reported Owner
Once you’ve accessed a property profile page, just navigate over to the Ownership tab to see who the reported owner or owning entity is.
Here, you’ll see the name of the person(s) or LLC of the recorded owner.
Drilling Into LLCs and Accessing Contact Information
From there, you can pierce the LLC to see the real people involved with ownership, along with the contact information of those people.
That includes the phone numbers, email, and mailing addresses of the real people that may be behind a property-owning LLC.
Accessing Full Owner Property Portfolios
If you’d like to take your analysis even further, Reonomy makes it simple to access the full property portfolio of an owner.
You can click on the name of the owner as it appears on the property profile, and you’ll be given a list of all of the properties they’re associated with as an owner.
That includes properties under the ownership of other LLCs.
You can see the connection between individual owners, between different LLCs, and between various properties. Or all of the above.
