How to know the owner of the property?

4 Replies

So I m just starting out and I m trying to get my first investment property. I m working with my realtor trying to find good properties and also I have been driving around for distressed properties. I found a house in a good neighborhood that looks like nobody lives there anymore and the lawn is overgrown and the property is just not taken care of. My big question is how do I find out what the actual address for the property is and how do I figure out who the owner is and his/her contact info? Also I have listened to the podcast and remember BP talking about direct mails. Do I just write a letter saying I want to buy your house and send it to their mailing address or leave it in their mail box? I m really new to this and I apologize if I sound stupid. Thank you all in advance. Your answers will be highly appreciated.

County assessor website will say owner. If it's in an LLC, generally you can look up the LLC on google and find the managing member(s).

You can generally find an address if you found the business name.

Prooertyshark.com is amazing and also neighborwho. Just plug in the address and bam! Owner’s info, contact info etc. PS gives you comps and more up to date info but NW gives cell numbers, and more info on the owners. Both for about a $20 monthly subscription.
