Search on www.google.com You may want to search as follows: X County Tax Collector in X State
That should work if not break them up into pieces…search for anything with the county and so on. Good Luck!
Q for Joe Kaiser - Posted by Tim

I mail postcards to people scheduled for forecloser. Around 30% come back to me as “Vacant” with no forwarding address. When I check the on-line tax office, it shows the owners mailing address to be the same as the physical address.
What can I do with these leads? What is the next step to contact the owner?
Thanks for your help!

We mail lots of postcards for this very reason: identifying vacant properties. We just can’t physically make it out to every possible lead, so the returned mail occassionally helps us to find a deal or two.
Vacant houses in foreclosure are rarely deals worth doing. But every now and then there’s big equity on the table and it becomes a race to see who can track them down and get a deed.
There is a “how to” article up on this site that describes the things we do to track down owner’s who, like Elvis, have left the building.
Talking to neighbors rates high on the list, in case you’re wondering.

Tim - can you post the link to the online tax office? Since I am sure we live in different states, where would be a good link to start within my state? Thanks -

With these vacant foreclosures do you have much luck doing short sales?
