Reverse address lookup tools show who lives at a specific street address. Using an address lookup tool is easy: Enter an address to see everything the tool knows about the home or business you're interested in. Details that these reverse address lookup services provide include the current and past owners, phone numbers associated with the address, physical location information such as square footage and bedroom count, and the owners' relatives.

With all the free information available on the web for anyone willing to look for it, you do not need to pay for reverse address lookup information.

Reverse Address Lookup Sites

Many websites are built specifically for reverse lookup functionality. Visit any of the reverse address lookup services in this article to learn more about who lives at an address.

Truthfinder

Use the Truthfinder reverse address lookup service to browse by city and state, or search for the exact address. The results show the first and last name of all possible residents, past and present, with their ages and possible relatives.

With Whitepages, the old phone book standby is on the web and ready to fulfill your information needs.

Can You Use a Search Engine for Reverse Address Lookups?

A search engine is amazingly useful for many tasks, but reverse address lookup isn't one of them. An address search for a business cataloged in a search engine results in the business name and other information such as the hours the business is open and pictures of the building.

The problem with using a search engine such as Google, Yahoo, or Bing, however, is that they're not made to cross-reference addresses with homeowner information. Therefore, they're not helpful to run a reverse address search on a private address. You can use Google or another search site to look for address information, but the results may not be very helpful.

To use Google for a reverse address search, type the address with quotation marks around the street and house number as well as around the city name, for example:

"1500 broadway" "new york"

Quotes help the search engine understand that the various items of the address go together.
