I use this one to convert address to latitude/longitude. It prompts 3 to 4 findings. I choose the
one converged by two of them. Then input it into USGS progream to get the seismic spectral values.
Couple more steps, but work.

Actually Gordon, www.seismicfactor.com does not use the zip code average. It
is obtains specific Ss and S1 based on the actual address. I know many
programs out there use the zip code average which can result in seismic
coefficients being off by as much as 40 percent. I use it regularly and
found it quite reliable and saves me quite a few steps.

Exactly what I was looking for.  Thank you.
