Tips for finding absentee owner

2 Replies

Looking for some tips--especially from those of you who have been wholesaling a while: I'm trying to track down the owner of a vacant house. Of course I have his name and address (it's actually a business address) from the tax record and, of course, I've sent him mail. Google isn't helping much. Any other ideas of how to get in touch with him?

Social media websites? I recently was in a similar situation and had to find a couple who divorced and have them execute a quit claim deed before I could transfer the property. With the help of social media I was able to locate the ex wife and through her I located the ex husband. Nasty divorce so I paid them both $100 to show up and sign the quit claim deed....It was a sight to see...Best $200 I've spent in awhile.
