Many different types of professionals use GeoWarehouse for many different reasons.

Even those in non-real-estate industries — such as law enforcement, recovery professionals, and tax consultants — rely on the power of GeoWarehouse.

Yet even though these professions are all different and they make use of GeoWarehouse for many different reasons, the features they rely upon are the same.

One very powerful report — the GeoWarehouse report — offers insights for each of these professionals and more!

Read on to see how different professions use the same GeoWarehouse features in different ways.

Real Estate Appraiser

Our GeoWarehouse solution allows real estate appraisers to streamline comparable searches. You can easily find comparable properties by radius, sales timeframe, and price range. You can also enhance your data and workflow management with multi-property search functionality. This saves you time and resources by batching your searches together.

Resources of Particular Interest for Appraisers:

  • Property Details Report for an automated valuation model (AVM), sales history, property images, and more (good to use as a starting point for your appraisal).
  • Comparable Sales Report.
  • Parcel Register* to flag due diligence issues that could affect the property value.

Real Estate Developers, Architects, and Engineers

When you’re looking to invest in or develop a property, the land you choose is essential. Sometimes you want to find the “diamond in the rough” or spot a great location before it even goes on the market. You also want to make sure the property you’re investing in is a safe bet — you don’t want the deal to fall through at the last minute due to undisclosed red flags.

That’s where GeoWarehouse features come in. With our solutions, you can easily gain critical insights into property ownership, address confirmation, and legal descriptions (important when acquiring sites). You can also access registered plans and aerial imagery through the GeoWarehouse Store. Finally, you can even search for potential properties online to find prospects who haven’t listed yet — but could be persuaded to do so.

Resources of Particular Interest for Developers, Architects, and Engineers:

  • Surveys and Plans (available in the GeoWarehouse Store).
  • Property Details Report (particularly for property images).
  • Parcel Register* to verify homeownership and check for encumbrances.

You can also search comparable sales, find neighbourhood demographics to uncover new markets, and much more.

Law Enforcement and Private Investigators

Accelerate investigations and find vital property information. Law enforcement professionals and private investigators can quickly uncover:

  • Property instruments, such as details about registered encumbrances and mortgages.

Before you had to go to a Land Registry Office to retrieve this data, but now it is all available online, saving you time and resources.
