What would be the best or more efficient  steps to follow after you find a vacant house to find the owners?

After getting on TLO, which one do I chose. I got the same thing: Finding the owners to the property. Any advise on how to navigate TLO would be helpful. Thanks in advance!

 Are you a wholesaler or rehabber?

hi rafeal. i have a number of different ways to find the owners, usually they are free  also. first, find the house, then check with the local tax assessors office. they may have a new address for the owner. second, county websites often list the owner. most often, it will list the owner as living in the house, which we know is not the case. then, if you get the owners name, check the website for any other houses he or she may own in the area. chances are they live in one of the other houses. if they do not own any other houses, run their names on whitepages.com. you might be surprised with what you come up with. as a last resort, i knock  on neighbors doors around the house. its amazing what neighbors know.
