If you happen to put your phone number out there on the web, you may likely get tons of prank calls. This can affect you adversely and is also an infringement of anonymity. As such people avoid having their phone numbers on social media or on the internet.
However, if you there’s a phone number you want to get, note this. Once you have the street address, you can use it to search for the name and phone number of the person who lives at that address. Reverse address directories, which at one time were printed books, can now be accessed online for searches. Also, you can research an address using property records, real estate search tools as well as ordinary search engines.
Let’s see the search options that are open to you:
Phone Number Search By Address
Do you have an address and want to see the phone numbers linked with it?
Simply pull up a reverse directory website. You can find quite a few of them online.
- You can use Whitepages.com. It has a White Pages reverse directory for searches performed by address. It also has a reverse phone lookup directory for searches by phone number.
- Another website you can use is the AnyWho website. This website enables you to search by name, address, or phone number. Both tools offer you the name and phone numbers of people at a given address.
- Once you have a name and phone number, you can gather more information by continuing to research the person you are interested in. You can do this using traditional search engines and social media like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
Using a Search Engine
Traditional search engines like Google or Bing can also come in handy in helping you search for an address. As long as the person at an address has listed that address in an online resume or a business page, a search may turn up that information. You can also see rental or real estate listings which tells you who to contact about that address.
You can also utilize Google Street View and other mapping tools to see exactly what an address looks like and where it is located. This information may come in handy in helping you determine who owns it or more information about the neighborhood.
There are also Newspaper search sites like newspapers.com, LexisNexis and Google News. All these sites can come in handy if the address you have was ever mentioned in a publication. With these sites, you may be able to find out who lives or works at a particular address and use the information in tracking down a phone number.
Using Real Estate Search Tools
Real estate search tools are another medium you can use in getting information about a property. Sites like Zilliow.com have listings nationwide. Sometimes, it even includes information about when homes were bought and sold.
You can also check individual land records offices in order to see if you can find information about who owns a property. In some counties and cities, this information is listed online. However, the land records offices may not include phone numbers. But they usually include owners’ names, which you can use in searching in a traditional physical or online phone book or search social media.
