From Near Zero to Data Hero – The Evolution of Property Data in Suffolk County


Posted on 10/07/2020 by Erik Wind

Real estate professionals know that having property data and being able to utilize it to its best possible use gives them a competitive edge. That is particularly true for customers of GeoData Plus who have access to Suffollk County.

A Bit of Suffolk County History

For over 20 years, GeoData Plus has been working towards making property data easier to access, analyze and interpret. While GeoData Plus has property data in all 50 states with over 300 points of data on any property - there is no county like Suffolk County NY when it comes to seeing how far things have improved.

In 2002, the idea of getting basic information such as square footage on a home in Suffolk County was practically unheard of. Outside of one or two enterprising townships that were ahead of their time, this type of information was either a closely guarded secret, or simply unavailable with the exception of a trip to town hall (assuming it’s available there).

GeoData Plus' Suffolk County Data Today

Of the 420,000+ single family homes in Suffolk County, GeoData has building characteristic details on nearly 70% of them; square footage, year built, room count, and/or style are fields now readily available in GeoData Plus. In fact, GeoData Plus is one of the few companies that has this type of information available in townships such as Brookhaven, Babylon, and Islip.

Other information, such as sales history, mortgage records, lis pendens, auctions, bank owned properties, telephone numbers, taxes, may or may not be available in other sources, but what makes GeoData special is that all of this information is in one place.

Here are some of the amazing things you can do with GeoData Plus:
