What's this Home's Actual Square Footage? How do I know if the home has any liens?
If you want to know the square footage of any home, you can find this and more on the county assessor's webpage as this is public information. With so many homes going into foreclosure, we hear renters' concerns that they don't want to be suddenly foreclosed upon. While the county's information can not ultimately prevent this type of event, most tenants find this information helpful when researching rental homes. Click on the seal to access the county's website. Just enter the home's number and the street name (no street, drive, avenue following) and no city is necessary. We are noticing the assessor is behind in listing recorded documents relating to foreclosure, so this feature may not be as reliable as one would hope!
What Schools Are Associated with This House?

Support Our Troops
On patrol at the Front: it’s lonely... desolate... and still far too dangerous for our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. It's difficult, too, for the families and kids they've left behind. Please join me in supporting our troops overseas by clicking on the photo above for the link to USO and say a prayer for friends (below) and family members of so many.
