Leverage ownership records and their information for your benefit;
Uncover Unusual Ownership Patterns
Understanding a property’s ownership history can help uncover anomalies of ownership. If a property has several ownership changes in a short period of time, further questions or due diligence could be prompted.
Understanding the Intent of the Current Owner
Ownership records help to infer the intent of the current owner. If the owner is looking to sell despite owning for a short period of time, prioritization may be placed the speed of sale. Ownership records also reveal the last sale value. Through knowing what the current owner paid, you can better evaluate what they expect to be paid for the property for it to sell. Understanding the intent of the current owner allows for a scenario whereby meeting their needs you can also benefit yours. Owner records go beyond the reported owning entity/LLC to deliver contact information including;

Property Title Search
A property title search uncovers the title of ownership attributed to the current property. In practical terms, this is the same as a property owner search.
A parcel is the land unit that a commercial asset is assigned to. Parcel searches can be performed by looking up a particular parcel ID or searching interactively on the map. Within the map, unique parcels can be identified and clicked through. A parcel search is traditionally performed by individuals that don’t have an exact property in mind, and instead are looking in a particular area.
Lookup a particular property to uncover the information most valuable to you. A property lookup can be performed in several ways. Lookup a property through a known address, locate the property you are looking for on a map or by searching the name of the property. In the absence of a known property, perform a targeted property lookup using the following search filters;
Property Sales History Search
Search for properties that meet your search criteria for sales date and sales amount. Optimize searches by adjusting the range of these categories. Property sales history searches aide in identifying properties with the potential to sell soon, as well as identifying property owners that have purchased or sold within a particular period.
Property Debt History Search
Search for target properties that meet your debt criteria. Perform debt based property lookups with the following debt filters;
- The lender. Searches can be filtered by which institution lent the money for the current debt on the property.
- The loan origination date. The date on which the current loan was taken out for the property.
- The loan value. The amount of a loan in comparison to the value of the asset in totality.
- The maturity date. The date in which the principal amount of a loan becomes due. This is something investors look for because it means the date the property needs to refinance or sell.
Property Search by Geography
Search for target properties based on the geography of your focus. Use the geographic search most relevant to your objectives including;
- Search properties by street address
- Search properties by zip code
- Search properties by county
- Search properties by city
- Search properties by state

Property Search by Property Type
Search for target properties based on the property type of your focus.
Search property type by land use
Tailor your commercial property search for the asset class of your focus. Common land use searches include multifamily, retail and industrial. Increase granularity by searching via subcategories. Refine a multi-family property type search by choosing sub-categories such as apartment buildings (5+units), duplexes or mobile home parks.
Search Property Type by Building Characteristics
Refine your commercial property search by searching for properties that meet certain characteristics. Common building characteristics filters include building area size, lot size, year built and the number of units.
Off Market Property Search
Traditionally, when searching for property purchase, buyers look for properties on the market. An off-market property search opens up new opportunities when searching for a property. An off-market property search allows you to identify properties that are better suited to your needs by expanding the pool of properties beyond what is listed.
By directly contacting the property owner, you have contact with the decision maker directly to generate outcomes. There are many benefits of off-market opportunities, for sellers;
- Saving money because there’s no commission to a broker.
- Receiving money faster. Instead of waiting for a broker to put together an Offer Memorandum, the seller can simply share the financials and current rent roll. The seller also saves time that would be spent having to do property tours, qualifying buyers etc.
- It’s less hassle for the seller. Not having to deal with multiple persons/parties vying for the property and not disturbing the tenants can be a big relief.
For buyers, the benefits are equally valid;
- Save money. You’re not involved in an auction-type process where the broker is doing their job of finding the highest paying buyer who will close. Instead, you are working directly with the owner and getting a fair price that hasn’t increased in price artificially by other buyers.
- More creative financing opportunities. By working directly with the owner you learn their pain points and what they want out of the deal. This gives more flexibility to match both parties end goals.
- Close faster.
Build Property Lists
Perform any of the searches above to generate lists of target properties. Effective property lists are highly targeted and relevant to your acquisition targets. Create an effective lead list of properties in three easy steps;
- Run a tailored search for property owners, filtered by the characteristics of the properties they own.
- Save the results of the search and bulk label appropriately.
- Export the results into a CSV file.
High quality, relevant, property lists serve as a valuable tool to prospect potential acquisitions. Property lists include property owners contact details that allow you to reach out to explore the opportunity further.
