AcreValue's Owner Presence Search feature allows users to identify parcels where the owner resides out of state. This powerful tool is ideal for individuals interested in purchasing or leasing land, including farmers, realtors, energy companies, and investors. By enabling the search and filtering of properties owned by absentee owners, AcreValue makes it easier to find potential opportunities in the real estate market.

What is the Owner Presence Filter?

The Owner Presence Search feature is designed to enhance the property search experience on AcreValue by highlighting parcels owned by individuals living in a different state. This feature allows users to search for parcels or recent sales and apply filters specifically for absentee owners.

What are Absentee Owners?

Absentee owners are defined as individuals who own property in one state but reside in another. These owners may be more inclined to sell or lease their property, providing unique opportunities for buyers and lessees.

Identifying Absentee Owner Parcels

On AcreValue, parcels identified as absentee owner properties are clearly marked. Users can view these parcels on the map, alongside other property details. This visual representation helps users quickly identify potential opportunities.

  • Out-of-state: In the context of AcreValue's Absentee Owner Search, "out-of-state" refers to property owners who reside in a different state from where their parcel of land is located. These owners might have inherited the land, purchased it as an investment, or moved away, and are often more inclined to sell or lease their property due to the challenges of managing it from afar. This makes out-of-state properties prime opportunities for buyers and lessees.
  • In-state: Conversely, "in-state" refers to property owners who live within the same state as the parcel they own. These owners are typically more familiar with the local area and more involved in the management of their property. In-state properties might be less likely to be available for sale or lease compared to out-of-state properties, as the owners are often more invested in their land's use and maintenance.

Combining the New Feature with Other Property Search Parameters

The Owner Presence Search feature can be combined with other search parameters to refine results:

  • Land Use: Filter absentee owner properties by their current use.
  • Property Size: Search for absentee-owned parcels within a specific acreage range.
  • Recent Sales: Identify recently sold absentee-owned properties.
  • Geographic Location: Combine state, county, or specific coordinates with the absentee owner filter.

Example Combination
