Look up the owners name through the county. Search the name on the internet for the number. Call the owner.

Easiest way to look up any property is to first see if it's for sale and in your price range; Google the address on your computer.
It will tell you everything you need to know. Then call your real estate agent to help you. Be sure you are working with a good agent who is looking out for you! Good luck.

If you know the proeprty is for sale, you may wan to ask a realtor to search their data resourses to see if the property in fact is for sale, and any history of the property. You can search the local mls web site for the property addrss yourself and if the property is available contact the agent representing the seller, or you may inform agent you may have a relationship with to set up an appointment to see the home. If not represented on the mls, it is likely the proeprty i not currently for sale. That said, you may want to send a note via an agent or yourself to see if the seller has an interest in selling. I would however (as this can be daunting, and can be an uncomfortable situation for yourself, or a homeowner) to have an agent contact the seller for you to see if there is interest in selling. Good luck, and hope we have all been helpful. PLease feel free to contact myself or an agent at my firm. Regards, NAncy Felcetto, Halstead Property (Hudson VAlley) 518-828-0181 x 10.

In addition to the sites recommended, you might stop in Town Hall and ask for a copy of the property card.

Good luck in your search.

If the house is listed with an agent you can go to and type in the address. This should take you to information about the house.

Is the home currently "For Sale?"

There are a number of websites that might be helpful. Consider visiting

Regardless of whether of not it is on the market, this site will provide you with basic information about the home. IMPORTANT: their Zestimate information should be evaluated carefully. Many people are questioning the accuracy of this feature.....proceed with caution.

Good luck
