Are you looking for information about a particular piece of property? In the past, the only way to access property records was by making a trip down to the county courthouse and manually searching through their paper files. But now, thanks to the advancements of internet technology, it is easier than ever to access property information from the comfort of your own home or office. Researching property records can uncover a wealth of valuable information, such as property details, sales history, current value, property taxes, ownership history, mortgage records, parcel maps, and more. Knowing this information can be very helpful in determining if a property is really a good purchase or a fair asking price if you are selling your home.
For example, the Hillsborough County, Florida Property Appraiser’s real estate and tangible records database provides access to assessed values, market values, sales history, building characteristics, land lines, legal description, GIS maps, and tax information. Searches can be conducted using the owner’s name, address, folio, PIN number or tangible personal property account number. Additionally, you can also search for property sales records by location, property use, neighborhood, sales date, sales price, year built, or square footage through their online property sales database. The Hillsborough County Clerk of the Circuit Court is another avenue of valuable property information. By accessing their official records database, you can view recorded documents, such as deeds, mortgages, judgments, liens and financing statements. You can search for these records by name, document type, or date range. You can even print document images right from your home computer.
Property records like these can be accessed easily through the Free Public Records Directory – Assessor and Property Tax Records Resources and through their Land Records and Deeds Resources pages. The Free Public Records Directory also provides links and resources to many different types of public records such as jail and inmate records, vital statistics, business and contractor licenses, sex offenders, UCC filings and more. Searches can be made by city and state, zip code, or by type of record.
