I can find the owner for you and provide a phone number and "live body" to talk to about the lot or property you're looking to acquire. I have access to databases that are only available to licensed and bonded investigative firms (which I am), and subsequently provide significantly more info regarding an address's ownership history, relatives, neighbors, previous addresses, etc., which will lead to contact with a person who can ultimately make a decision to sell. These databases are much more sophisticated than a "findpeople.com or publicsearch.com" that you see advertised on TV or internet. Often the heirs of a shell or lot are grateful to hear from someone willing to buy the parcel because they have been sitting on it and have no idea of how to convey it and get this off their backs, and glad to sell for tax lien amounts plus 1-2K, and are happy as ever. I've located numerous neighbor heirs, relatives, etc. in outlying states for properties next to mine in Phila on many occasions. Success rate is 98%. Been doing this 17 years. If interested e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks. Scot.
