Schneidercorp's Beacon website provides access to property information and allows users to search for this information and compare properties. This information includes public property records and GIS coordinates.
Beacon's site works consistently across different operating systems and screen sizes. It utilizes a responsive design that works on PC, tablet and smartphone screen sizes. Beacon also offers tools to make the site easier to use on mobile devices, include auto-complete for searches and dropdown menus for recently-used and favorite items.
Beacon's comparison service allows users to compare multiple property attributes, such as assessed value, year built, sale price and tax district. It also allows users to search for the number of bedrooms, occupancy status and style. This information is taken from city and county property records, so availability of information depends on whether these public records are available in digital form.
GIS information provides users with interactive maps. Because this information is copied from other sources, Schneidercorp does not guarantee the accuracy or quality of the data. The Beacon site disclaims that this information cannot stand in for surveys, engineering plans or other legal documents. It is not legally valid for establishing land ownership, use or the location of structures on a property.
