Why not just refer them to an agent in that area and get a referral fee? Seem like that would be the common sense thing to do, unless you plan on doing a lot of business in AR.

You can contact your County Assessor office where the property tax records are kept. You can ask your neighbors who sometimes have contact information of the owner.

If you want to find out yourself, you can get an online report within few minutes on website such as or

You can download a title report that has mortgage record, ownership history, delinquent taxes even liens and foreclosure information.

My NC Homes Team answered:
Of course they do unless they enjoy potentially wasting their money. All advertising dollars should be tracked and ROI figured out as best as possible, without doing this how could anyone tell whether it was worthwhile to continue spending money advertising on a specific site or in this case using print. Occasionally it's difficult to determine with absolute accuracy where a sale or client came from but it definitely pays to ask and keep track of what's working and what's not.

Personally I have an advertising budget of roughly $50,000 a year and haven't used print/direct mail for nearly a decade. I find it too expensive and that the ROI isn't acceptable. I know other agents who like direct mail, there's no one right answer.

Begin by having a discussion with your agent regarding your expectations; if the chat proves unsatisfactory contact his/her broker owner, and or office manager, and express your concerns; if necessary you can ask to be assigned another agent from within for the duration of the contract. Noticed below that you state "Our house has been shown 4 times in 4 months", if that's the case, also review comps, recently sold similar properties in the immediate area, see what the data suggests as to a fair list price; if necessary adjust accordingly in order to be as competitive as possible. Also review marketing strategies, does it maximize your exposure. Have you received any feedback from the showings, if so what was suggested. Again discuss with your agent and review all, then go from there.... ... more

Leasing To Own Solutions answered:
Hello there Rebecca....

Let me first start by saying THANK YOU! By simply thinking outside the box and trying to expand your knowledge about a subject says a lot about you. "We" Investors thank you, and wish more of you were around. :)

Now....I will tell you that I listened to my favorite PodCast a week or two ago (The Real Estate Guys) that may be a good starting point (as I'm not sure how much you know about Option Contracts or Assignments). Take a listen, it may be worth something to you. In the middle of the page click on "Considering Your Options - How to Control Property with Little or No Cash". Bob, Robert, and Russ start to mention assignments and the role Realtors can play into it about 1/3 of the way through.

P.S. If you want to learn how investors think....This is a great PodCast to subscribe and listen to on just about ANY topic.

Here is a link to Brian Gibbon's site where he try to help agents on Options (maybe not as much on Assignments):

Without knowing the whole scope of your question, if you want to expand a little more, maybe I can help.
