New Wholesaler Question

6 Replies

How do I know if a seller is or is not wholesaling a property that is advertised?

Go the direct route, ask!

I've had investors etc ask me.  I tell them the truth, nothing to hide.

You also might be able to check the property record for ownership

I know that doing a Property deed search at the government office, or visiting the local tax assessor office is a great way to find the property of ownership but, have you found any other "ACCURATE" online sources we can use to get this information quick?

 Accurate is the key word here, but in states that have Property records public like CA, sites like Zillow and Redding often have owner names on the Property profile. That said, you can’t be sure it is up to date accurate but it is certainly another place to start.

most county tax collectors are on line simply put in the address.. owner will pop up unless it just changed hands it will be accurate.
