Assessor Parcel Maps.... where are they?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,  I almost feel stupid asking this but where and how do you get your ASSESSORS MAPS.  It seems like every time I find a site to retrieve APM's,  It's good for 8 months and then somebody changes the method to retrieve them and I have to start over.

 

I have used title companies,  the SANGIS system,  NETROLINE,   and a couple of others,  what do you guys use?  Is it free?

Try the county Scott. Used Netronline for a long time then it just quit giving me info.

 

When using the County use ONLY the APN. If you HAVE to use the address just put in number and street, maybe the St. Dr. Ave. etc.

 

If you put in all the info in the address field like 123 Any Street, Any Town, ZIP it will get you nothing.

Cost $2 a page plus $.61 processing but it's good if you know the APN.

 

I use Google Earth pro for APN's or call the county in a pinch if that doesn't work.

Free. One resource I use is Vision, but it will be of little use to you on the west coast. Many cities and towns here have their own GIS systems accessible via the city/town website.

Check out Portland, ......

 

Are you talking Portland Oregon or Portland Maine?  If you are talking Maine,  Lynn and I will be up there in October 2016 to see the colors.  Maybe we can get together for lunch as we cruise through.  Anyway,  keep it in mind Moakster,  it will be nice to meet you.

DSH - Would love to meet up with you when you are in Maine. I'll buy you a Lobster Roll (Image from today's paper - that is not me)

Holy Kamoly,  I have been dreaming about your lobster rolls ever since we decided to make this trip.  I will definitely keep in touch.

 

BTW,  down here in SOCAL we have "lobsters",  but nothing like those.  In fact our lobster do not have claws.  We call them "bugs".  Back when we were scuba diving,  during "lobster" season,  we would scuba dive down at night and catch them,  boil them and eat them.  

 

But nothing beats a Maine Lobster.

Type the address into Google.   Click the link for what Zillow presents.  Then see if Zillow has a county data source link.  It brings you to the county's assessor office, where almost always you can find the parcel map.

I use FastWeb. Do you know anyone that works at First American Title?

I used FASTWEB 10 years ago,  they started limiting me to a couple a month and then it became to much of a hassle so I switched to NETROLINE until now they can't give me maps.

Thanks Tom,  however I can not read the map.  I am assuming I need to go to a site that charges me a nominal fee to get a tiff file....  still searching for a good consistent site to get the map.  

 

I do  not want to spend time trying to figure out a web site.  I would much rather pay 3.00 each time,  get my map and move on.....  it seems that I have lost that ability lately....  I will check out The Moakster;s method.....  Larry's looks promising too.

That's exactly what Corelogic does.

The county parcel map search site is there for what you want to do - get parcel maps. Very easy.

 

Perry, I tried to get on the Core Logic Site and have a request to sign up but don't know any details yet. Looks like a pay site with a monthly fee?

 

Some times I need more info than Zillow (great for year built) Google and the County site and it would be great to have access to more info like Core Logic. I'll wait till they get back to me about signing up.

We are lucky in Monterey County. This is free for us through the county website.post-170-0-64222700-1436974780_thumb.jpg

no monthly fee, just pay for what you take, and they will do it automatically for you. and they have Tiff. maps

Just got off the phone with Patrick from Core Logic. The cheapest plan they had (today) was $100/month and the cost of each download would be deducted from that monthly charge. Perhaps you (Perry) signed up before they went to a monthly charge? Reports looked very nice and complete but $100 a month is too much for the amount of reports I'd need.

Sounds like you both need to pay Perry $6 a Tiff file :)

Checking in:

 

The Moakster's suggestion,  it does no cover SOCAL,  useless for me

 

Alan's Fast  Web,    I used this before,  it became more and more restricted,  stop using it,  just checked it out,  they wanted password etc,  I did not go any further

 

Perry's system,  they wanted a subscription,  could not figure how to get on,  gave up

 

Larry's County system,  I got on,  bought plat map for 5.00,  I think they will mail it to me,  they said I could view it for 10 days but I do not know how to do that,  I gave up

 

My County system (SDGIS)  their web site only recognizes internet explorer,  I am on a MAC,  no internet Explorer,  I use internet explorer on my PC,  for some reason the monitor is huge,  I can't read the maps anymore....

 

Netroline,  I tried it today..... IT WORKED!  I was able to get a plat map for the first time in 4 months.....  I cannot explain it.....

 

Mick's suggestion of using Perry to get plats was a thought,  but he was talking 6.00 per plat,  I doubt Perry wants to be bothered getting plats for me....  thanks Mick,  but not a whole lot of help...

 

soooooo,  Netroline is working for now,  fingers crossed,  3.50 for a plat map if quick and efficient is well worth it.

Really, I was never aware of any plan like that. I was brought over from Dataquick when Core logic took them over. They just add whatever charges I might have that month which is way less then a hundred to my credit card. I was offered that plan recently within a few months ago. Maybe you should ask them about it.

So weird how different people experience different sites differently. I enter the APN, buy the parcel map for $2.61 and download the Tiff file. Takes 3 - 4 minutes total.

 

Scott, you enter the APN, pay $5.00, maybe get it mailed to you, maybe can view it, and give up. When Netronline fails, and it always did for me, give me call I'll walk you through it.

You were "brought over from DataQuick", which explains the plan you were grandfathered. I talked to a company rep today and asked about all their plans. There is nothing currently offered that matches the service you have. Great service me thinks but not worth $100 a month to me.
