How to Use Property Ownership Data

Property ownership data is a powerful and essential tool used by a wide variety of industries from real estate to insurance to home services. Let's explore how you can use property data to enhance your product offering.


What is property ownership data?

Property ownership data includes all information related to the current owner of a property.

It's important to understand that ownership data differs from historical deeds which contains up to 40 years worth of historical sale and mortgage data which constitute a deed record or transfer of land ownership.

Ownership information can include the following data fields:

  • name—owner name or name(s);
  • formatted_street_address—address of property where current tax bill is mailed;
  • unit_type—type of property such as an apartment;
  • unit_number—for example, unit #104;
  • city—the city where the current tax bill is mailed;
  • state—the state where the current tax bill is mailed;
  • zip_code—the zip code where the current tax bill is mailed;
  • owner_occupied—a description of the owner occupancy. For example, 'yes' or 'probable'.
