Help the community by answering this question:



You make an offer to the owner. It's that simple.

Real estate investors do that. They'll contact owners of houses--often houses that appear abandoned or at least in not-good condition--and express an interest in buying it.

In your case, a Realtor would be helpful. He/she can track down who owns the property and where they live. (You could do the same; they'll use the tax records, which are public information.) Then you put together an offer and present it to the owner. Not a big deal.

Hope that helps.

Contact a local real estate agent who will be able to track down the owner of record. Unless it's a foreclosure, your agent will let you know if the owner's interested.

How do you know it is off the market ? I have to know the address to see what the status is, so I can go on line to check and call you back. Steve 248 819 6464
