The PropertyFeature table is one of the most frequently used in ATTOM's dataset. It brings together address information and characteristics for over 150 million properties.
The following fields are indexed. When searching for data, using one or more of these fields to narrow down the search can significantly reduce the time for a query to run.

A coverage report provides details about the amount of data we have been able to collect for each county. The primary source of data for PropertyFeatures is the local County Tax Assessor office for the 3,000+ counties in the US.
The following is an example taken from a coverage report.
StateCode: A county is always contained within a single state.
CountyName: The name by which a county is commonly known. County names are usually only unique within a state. e.g. there is an Orange County in CA, FL, IN, NC, NY, TX, VA, and VT.
FIpsCode: The Federal Information Processing System (FIPS) code is assigned by the federal government to uniquely identify each US county.
TotalParcels: The total number of land parcels that were last assessed in a specific tax year.
TaxAmountPopulation: The portion of land parcels that were assessed for tax. This would include most residential and commercial properties.
TaxYear: The year in which the property was last assessed for tax purposes. A year of zero indicates the property has been assessed for tax, but no year was recorded. A blank year usually indicates a property for which no tax assessment has been made.
LastAssessorUpdate: The date on which a change was last made to one or more of the properties in this tax year
