Off-Market and FHA loans

4 Replies

Has anyone on here approached properties that were not listed for sale but were in the area you wanted and looked in need of lift/flip/rehab compared to the property around it.

If so how did you go about getting it to the owner, establishing that it's a duplex property and not a "townhouse." Can you do this with fha funding?

Sorry if that's a round about way of asking.

How to find out what a property is, what it's worth, who owns it, is it a rental and how did you approach the owner about a sale.

You can look it up in county tax records, if your county is online. 

 To an extent it is online. 

How accurate is a counties appraisal of a property? If it is accurate is there a rule of thumb of what investors should offer as a purchase point? 

I've found and am trying to find a more efficient way to navigate the delinquent tax properties. Thus far they are listed by parcel identification and company/llc/owner that is behind on them. 

Can one request from the tax office the owners contact information or where would be the most reliable way of finding it?

Tax bills have the owners info if you are able to find them online. Also, I think the county clerks office may have records as well. They are online in our county.
