Recently the Cook County Land Bank launched a new online property viewer and search tool. The site includes property owned by the land bank and property that may be available to the land bank.
Initially you can search by parcel number, street address, or city or you can view all properties. The main view shows a map and a list of the properties. The property locations are color-coded by property classification such as “Residential Land” and “Residential Structure.” Searches can be filtered by location and building characteristics. The map can show additional layers such as recent foreclosures, tax sales, TIF districts, and floodplains.
You can click on a property to get to a property detail page with more information and pictures.
By creating an account it is possible to submit the pre-qualification application PDF.
The Cook County Land Bank worked with ePropertyPlus to develop the web application.
