How to Get an Address for Land
Are you planning to buy or sell a parcel of land soon? Or maybe you’re looking to receive mail on your property for some reason. If so, you are probably wondering how to get an address for land.
Unlike other property types such as houses or commercial buildings, getting an address is not quite as simple. Imagine driving through endless fields and vacant lots in a rural area – rarely will you find a mailbox that indicates the actual land address.
More often than not, when a house, commercial area or building is occupied by people or frequented by visitors, it is easier to get its address. The owner can provide you with the actual address or you can do a quick Google Maps search to find the address.
Here is an example of a Google Maps search on Tallahassee International Airport. Without even having to go on the airport’s official website, the map can tell you that the address is 3300 Capital Cir SW, Tallahassee, FL 32310, United States. The internet makes the process quite simple today.
Addresses for Land Are Not As Easy (or Typical)
On the other hand, we tried clicking on a random patch of what appears to be rural vacant land near the outskirts of Tallahassee.
While Google Maps indicated that it is found in Leon County, FL, and its actual coordinates, it doesn’t give the usual address that we would expect if we were to search houses or offices.
How to Get an Address for Land Through Public Records
Previously, we discussed APN numbers here on Land Soar. The number can be found in your property tax bill, and it stands for Assessor’s Parcel Number.
When you don’t have a record of your property’s APN number, then simply get in touch with the property assessor of the county where the land is located. You can get the contact details of property assessors according to the county here.
More often than not, for as long as you have an APN number which allows you to make payments for property taxes, then the address for land should be readily available.
These addresses can also be seen in land titles and land patents. Especially if the rural land is undeveloped, no matter how many acres it is spread across, it would only have one address.
Once the land is developed and streets and structures are built, then there would be more specific addresses available.
Sell Rural Land in Florida
One reason to find out how to get an address for land is if you’re buying or selling one. Naturally, when you are speaking to a buyer or seller to come up with a transaction, you have to give the precise location of the land for sale.
For those who are already familiar with rural land buying and selling, you already know that the address wouldn’t look the same as it would if you were purchasing a small piece of land in a developed area.
More often than not, when property taxes are paid regularly and if all documentation such as land titles are updated, then the address of land would be readily available.
If not, then it would be best to ask for assistance from real estate buying and selling experts.
