A website with tons of public data on property of your interest

We have been on of those sitting on the fence waiting for the right time to own our first place after this crazy housing bubble. I found this website on LA Times and found it very helpful.

This website is not so much for searching properties on the market; rather this site may provide you with "upper hand" once you find the house of your dreams. The site is built on available public records, so the data can be a little spotty and not completely up to date. But if you are lucky, you can find some valuable information in making your killer move. It shows prior sales records as well as the current mortgages on the property. For the current tough housing market, knowing that your seller has second mortgage along with a large primary loan can be a big leverage for you, although it means the opposite for the poor seller. :(

You will also find historical median house price during last 20+ years, property tax break down, etc. It also provides graphical chart of neighborhood information, such as median income, median age, year-built, time of last sale of the houses around the neighborhood, and more. You would find lots of data that your realtor is supposed to provide you with.

It's a bit scary what kind of information about YOU is public. You might even find phone records and copies of title transfers.

You can join for free. I haven't been spammed by the site, but I always use my "spam" email account for this kind of stuff any ways. For free subscription, there is daily limit to the search, but you can always "cheat" by clearing your cookies.
