Property Owner Search

Use the NeighborWho Property Owner Search to try and find information about the owner of a specific property by entering the address to review ownership information for a property you're researching. Before you complete a transaction, you can leverage NeighborWho’s owner search to view the tenure of ownership, resolve potential property disputes by contacting neighbors and potentially get the phone, email and other contact information for the current owner. If any of these sounds like something that you need, we can help.

Our property owner search looks up public records related to the address. It can provide valuable information about the owner's name, contact details, property history and financial records related to the property. During real estate research, knowing who owns a property is important for both buyers and sellers because it establishes ownership rights and deal negotiations.

Home Addition Cost Calculator

Are you thinking about building a new home addition, renovating a property to sell or flipping a house that needs a bit of work? Use the NeighborWho Home Addition Cost Calculator to help determine the project cost and valuation ahead of time. Our simple-to-use tool helps you estimate the potential costs by square footage based on where you live.

Find the approximate cost of your home addition project—from a single new room to a more expansive floor plan improvement. Once you enter details for your state and the square footage, our calculator provides an estimated project price range that helps you budget and plan.

Home Equity Loan Calculator

Use the NeighborWho Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) calculator to help estimate how much money you may be able to borrow against the equity in your home. Our calculator takes into account the estimated current value of your home and any outstanding mortgage balance. Next, it will auto calculate the loan-to-value (LTV) ratio you may be eligible for (up to 90%). By entering these details, the calculator gives you an approximate figure of how much you may be able to borrow.

The results are displayed in a summary table based on loan-to-value ratios and a bar chart with HELOC amounts at various LTVs. This estimated info is helpful when planning a large expense such as a home renovation or debt consolidation. Estimated results do not guarantee loan approval or terms.

Property Lien Search

Are you researching debts and legal issues related to a specific property? Understanding the outstanding voluntary debts and liens is important during the home buying process. It can help you as the buyer determine if there are any mortgages or legal issues attached to the property. For reference, a lien is a claim against a property made by a creditor or a third party for unpaid debts or obligations.

These claims can include involuntary liens for unpaid taxes, utility bills or outstanding legal judgments and voluntary liens like mortgages. By conducting a property lien search against public records, you may be able to find voluntary lien info and financial obligations tied to the property. This information is essential because these liens and legal issues can become the new owner's responsibility if left unresolved.
