Abandoned - but not owned by the bank, or already owned by the bank.

If not owned by the bank yet, your can talk to the neighbors (great resource), post master, police, and can even hire a PI to see where the owners are...this is because you could buy the house from them, as they are still the owners - through a short sale (so you buy at the lower than the current market price or at the market price).

If owned by the bank, you have to see if the property will be sold through the auction or through the REO (listed on MLS) - through realtors. Usually, it's too late by the time the property has been foreclosed upon, to get the bank's attention and buy...

Hope this helps,

Town Hall is the first stop. If it's been recently abandoned, the bank may not know, and may not have begun proceedings yet.

You can look the deed up online and see if the property has been foreclosed upon and who the lien holder may be. Many times if a property is foreclosed upon it may take months for the bank to market it with a Realtor due to a number of issues from deed to condition and so on..... pay attention to it a sign may show up at anytime. You can also find out a Realtor who may be listing prior to it being listed.

In addition to being able to see the taking deed online at http://www.masslandrecords.com you need to know that the foreclosure process can take many months to complete before being able to be sold. The original bank may not even end up the sellers as these notes are tradable securities and change hands before being sold. Therefore you will need to wait until it is posted as a for sale home. Banks will use a Realtor to sell it and it will be online. Good Luck.

Do you know that it's already foreclosed? Or you just know the owner has abandoned any attempts to keep the house?

The County registry of Deeds should have record of whether or not a notice of foreclosure has been filed and that record would indicate who had issued the notice. Lawrence, MA would be in the Northern Essex County Registry http://www.sec.state.ma.us/rod/rodnrthessex/nrthessexidx.htm

Hi-

I can't see any information on the property you're asking about. Do you have an address, an MLS number, or anything else to identify the house?

so sorry I don't know which property you are referencing but you can always find the responsible party through the local city or town hall. They should have a name and address to forward tax bills to and inorder to locate the lender or lenders on the property go to your local registry of deeds in massachusetts, you would be amazed at the information available including amount of liens and lenders information. Another interesting investigative way is to just put the address in your google bar - again tons of information may appear, past mls listings, police reports, foreclosure/auction notices and of course news items of a positive nature too. If I may be of assistance you can reach me at TradeWinds Realty Group LLC, MaryBeth Muldowney, President on 781-910-7294 my direct cellular line. Good luck with your research.
