  1. From your link, you can do specific property searches IF you know the landowner’s name from: http://www.shelbyal.com/probate/default.htm.

    If you do not know the landowner’s name, it’s easy enough to find if that person has a land line by going to http://www.whitepages.com/reverse_address and doing a “reverse” search of the address instead of by the owner’s name (which is what is not known). You can also find the names of neighors to the property to pull probate records of recent sales (including the mortgage documents).

    Most of Shelby County’s probate records are incorrect in the recordation of actual square footage. And Zillow offers little help there.

    Again, Tom, thanks for blogging – I always enjoy reading your topics.

    • Thanks alot for sharing those tips. I agree with you on the square footage. That is why Zillow and other similar websites are not that reliable, because they take square footage from county records and apply price per square foot. They are fun to play with but if you really need an accurate value an appraisal is hard to beat.
