Property

Property Type - The standardized description of the properties use or purpose. These are based on land use codes that counties use to group properties of similar types together for tax assessment purposes. These typically represent the current use of the property and may be different than zoning which specifies the allowed use(s) of the property. The actual county land use codes vary between counties and are not user friendly, so we map those codes to this standardized list for your convenience.

Beds - The number of bedrooms in the primary structure.

Baths - The number of bathrooms in the primary structure (.5 is a toilet and sink only, .75 adds shower but no tub).

Year Built - The year the property was built. Note that many counties will only have this data for newer properties after whatever date they began tracking it.

Same Mailing Address -  Whether or not the mailing address for the property tax bill is the same as the property address. This is commonly used as an indicator of whether or not the property is Owner Occupied, and in many areas is a good way to determine which properties are likely to be rentals. In some areas, however, there is no mail delivery to the property and therefore the owner's mailing address may be different even though they do occupy the property.
 
Same County -  Whether or not the owner's mailing address is in the same county as the property. This can be very useful for finding rental owners who live too far away to take care of their property. These owners may be looking for property managers, to sell to another investor, or to list the property for sale with an agent.  

Same State - Same State allows you to search for properties where the owner's mailing address is, or is not, in the same state as the property. This can be very useful for finding rental owners who live too far away to take care of their property.

Value and Equity

Estimated Value - The estimate of the property's value based on public records data. Referred to in the industry as an automated valuation model or AVM.

Est. Value/SqFt - The estimated value per square foot (estimated value divided by sq ft).

Estimated Equity $ - The estimated dollar value of the equity in the property calculated as estimated property value minus the sum of all loans which are modeled to be open on the property. For example, a property with a first mortgage of $50,000, a second mortgage of $30,000, and an estimated value of $100,000 would have $20,000 in estimated equity.

Estimated Equity % - Estimated equity as a percent of the estimated property value taking into account all loans which are modeled to be open on the property. For example a property with an open $80,000 first mortgage and a property value of $100,000 would have 20% equity. It is not possible to have more than 100% equity since it is impossible to own more than all of something. It is however possible to have less than 0% equity, or negative equity, as it is possible to have loans for more than the property is worth. Note that when searching for negative equity of 10 to 15% you would enter -15 as the minimum equity percent and -10 and the maximum because -10% is more equity than -15%. Also note that equity is tied to combined loan to value (CLTV). Searching for a maximum of -10% equity would be the same as a minimum 110% combined loan to value.

Combined Loan to Value - The combined loan amounts of all loans modeled to be open on the property as a percentage of the estimated property value. For example a property with a first mortgage of $50,000, a second mortgage of $30,000 and an estimated value of $100,000 would have a combined loan to value (CLTV) of 80%. Note that CLTV is tied to equity. Searching for a property with a minimum CLTV of 80% would be the same as searching for a maximum of 20 % estimated equity.

Estimated Open Loans Balance - The estimated combined amount of all open loans (noted as 1st, 2nd or 3rd) based on our computer model.

HUD Fair Market Rent - Estimated rental value is based on HUD (Dept. of Housing and Urban Development) Fair Market Rental data.

Estimated Cap Rate - Estimated Cap Rate based on estimated value. Capitalization rate (or Cap Rate) is the ratio between the annual net operating income of the property, and its capital cost. This ratio shows the potential annual return on investment (ROI) of the property assuming no financing is used. Our estimated cap rate is calculated as ((monthly rent x 12) - annual property taxes - estimated insurance) / estimated value. Our estimate is a bit simplistic and would be more complete if we included other expenses, like vacancy allowances or utilities; and we included other capital costs, like improvements. Also see Estimated Cash Return for a cash-on-cash ROI analysis.

Estimated Cash Return - Estimated Cash Return based on the estimated value. The cash-on-cash return is the ratio between the annual cash flow of the property, and the cash invested. Cash-on-cash return is used to calculate the potential annual cash return on investment of the property after financing. Our estimated cash return is calculated as ((monthly rent x 12) - annual property taxes - estimated insurance - (monthly payments x 12)) / estimated value - financing. For monthly payments and financing, we assume a standard fixed-rate 30-year financing. Our estimate is a bit simplistic and would be more complete if we included other expenses, like vacancy allowances or utilities; and we included other capital costs, like improvements. Also, see the Estimated Cap Rate for an ROI analysis that excludes financing.

Assessed Value - Total taxable value of the property including land and improvements.

Assessed Value/Est. Value - Percentage of the value assessed by the county assessor to the estimated current value of the property.

Homeowner Tax Exemption - Whether or not the owner of the property claimed the property as their primary residence in order to receive the homeowner's property tax exemption. In a resort area, which often have many second homes, lack of exemption more likely indicates second homes than rentals. Useful only in states or counties where homeowner exemption data is recorded. For other areas use the Owner Occupied search option.

Property Tax Delinquent? - Whether or not this property had delinquent property taxes as of the last tax status update.

Years Property Tax Delinquent - The number of years that the property taxes have been delinquent. Calculated simply as the current year minus the year the taxes were first reported delinquent and does not take into account months or days.

Loans & Liens

Estimated Number of Open Loans - The estimated number of loans that are currently open and outstanding on the property. By selecting a value you can limit your search to only properties that have exactly that many open loans.

Combined Loan to Value - The combined loan amounts of all loans modeled to be open on the property as a percentage of the estimated property value. For example a property with a first mortgage of $50,000, a second mortgage of $30,000 and an estimated value of $100,000 would have a combined loan to value (CLTV) of 80%. Note that CLTV is tied to equity. Searching for a property with a minimum CLTV of 80% would be the same as searching for a maximum of 20 % estimated equity.

Days on Market - Number of days since the property was listed for sale. For properties that are no longer active, this is the number of days between the date the property was originally listed, and its final status (sold, expired, etc).

Status Date - The date the listing status last changed. We check active listings for changes daily, and this date indicates the date of the last change, including new listings, price increases, price decreases, or changes to status. This is useful for finding properties that sold, expired, had price changes, or became pending during a certain time frame. Note this will only find listings where the most recent status change is within the specified date range. For example, you can't use it to find listings that were pending in January, if that listing is now sold, or if there is a new listing on the property.
