Five Reasons To Google Your Address

For many, it is common to search the internet to find products or services, but it is less common to search for your home’s address. Homeowners will benefit from searching their address, and this is why:

1. See If Megan’s law registrants live nearby – Megan’s Law requires law-enforcement to provide information regarding registered sex offenders.

2. Find crime reports for your home – A Google search for your address and “crime reports” will likely turn up a police crime map and statistics about crime in your neighborhood.

 3. Detect scammers trying to rent or sell your home – Scammers may compose fake listings offering your property for rent or lease-to-own at extremely low prices or terms.

4. Get a copy of your home’s property records – Online records about your home are from public records, often so old, they do not reflect accurate details about your home. If you discover inaccuracies in online reports, I recommend you contact the SLO county public records to correct these problems; especially if you are considering selling your home.

5. Look at your home’s Google street views – When considering selling your home, it is important to see what prospective home buyers will see. You may discover that the map is not accurate or your home not listed. Buyers often Google the location of a home for sale, if you are not on the map, or in the wrong location, you may have problems selling your home.  – 805-471-0828
