Who Owns Ames, Iowa is currently in production. Expected to be released around Fall 2021. An overview of the contents to be covered in the documentary is available below.
Intro – the documentary begins by introducing people to the following map which shows large rental properties throughout Ames, Iowa, as well as who owns each of them and an estimate of how much each owner earns per month, as well as additional information.
Each marker on the map below shows the location of a rental property in Ames. Click any of the markers to view:
1.) who owns the property (and if the property is owned by a business, who owns the business.)
2.) who manages the property.
3.) how many rental units are in each property.
4.) how much rent costs for each unit.
5.) how much income in generated by the rental property per month.
6.) estimated cost charged by property manager for managing the property.
7.) estimated profit earned by the property.
8.) additional information will eventually be added.
The below directory can be used to create a similar directory in your area. To create the directory, we used the following process:
1.) Look up the address of the rental property at the county assessor’s office (sometimes they have a property search engine on the county website).
2.) If we found that the DEED OWNER was a business, we looked up the business within the Secretary of State’s business entities search engine to find the “Registered Agent or Reserving Party” for the business, as well as their address.
The map will be available soon. Here is a list of what we’ve found so far:
