How to Find a House Address

by Stacy D. Cooper

You jotted down your friend's address but can't find it anywhere. Or maybe you drove down Main Street and found your dream house for sale but didn't see its address. Regardless of the reason, you need to find a house address and need a little bit of help. With an Internet connection you will be able to find someone who knows the address or figure out a way to find the address yourself.

Create an account at Twitter, FaceBook and Bebo, where many people network. One of your associates, friends or relatives may know the house address you are looking for, or you may be able to find someone who can tell you the address.

Call the phone operator and ask for the address associated with the phone number you are attempting to trace. Or perform a reverse search at the White Pages website. This method only works if the phone owners allow their address to be published.

Look in an online city directory or in a local library. Ask the librarian where to find the directory, as it may be on microfiche or in a book. Online, visit the U.S. City Directories website and search for your city among the others compiled there.

Search real estate websites for the addresses of houses for sale or rent. Type the street's name, city and state of the address you are searching for and press "Enter." If the address is listed at the site, it will pop up.
