If you’re in the market for a new home it’s important to do some research, not only about the location you want to live but in order to learn as much about a property as you can before signing off on a deal. In Lee County it’s easy to do, by utilizing the Lee County Property Line.
Managed by the Lee County Property Assessor, the site includes such useful information as photographs, assessed value of a property, a tax estimator, annual tax information, plus prior selling dates and prices. Available at www.leepa.org, users select database search, real property search and then enter the property’s address or the owner’s name. Not only is all of the information available for free, but you also gain great insight into the property itself, including gaining access to images of past warranty deeds. The Lee County Property Line is a great tool in scanning an entire neighborhood too, with the aerial viewer.
Generally, the closer a property is to the water, the higher the property value. As well, a nearby increase in development can also quickly raise property values. The website takes into account all properties, from the Bonita Springs multi-million dollar beachfront homes on Hickory Boulevard to some of the older neighborhoods, too.
The website also provides information on homestead exemptions, veteran exemptions and senior exemptions. As well, there’s a place to upload photographs and a wealth of information is available regarding some of the frequently asked questions of homebuyers, from things like the result of foreclosures on a neighborhood to learning more about the changes in appraised value.
When it comes to buying a home in popular Southwest Florida communities like Cape Coral or Estero, you need to do your homework. Luckily, for those in Lee County it’s simple to do, utilizing the free, useful information available through Lee County Property Line before you even step inside one of the area’s available homes. You can access this valuable resource at www.leepa.org.
