I have been driving and finding distressed properties and would like to market to the owner. Most of these properties are absentee owners and I am not for sure how to find them to be able to market to them. What are some of the websites and key words you use to find the owner to be cable to contact them?

Look the property up on the tax assessor website for the county they are located in. You will find the owners name and proper mailing address there. If you want any additional info you will need to skip trace them. There are plenty of companies that do skip tracing these days. Just Google "skip tracing".
